It has been a decidedly slow week leading into the Labour Day long weekend — a lack of buyers and sellers over the last lazy stretch of summer has led to month-over-month and year-over-year sales declines across all home types.

Detached houses for sale saw the smallest decrease, with activity down -28 per cent from the same week in 2017. That’s compared to a -48 per cent drop for semi-detached homes, and -31 per cent and -38 per cent declines for townhouses and condos, respectively.
