By property type, the board says detached properties were down more than 39 per cent, attached sales were down almost 7 per cent – but apartment sales were up 5.5 per cent.
“If you look at the numbers, you’ll see that detached had gone down the most as far as number of sales, and then active, and then of course condos following. But there is definitely not enough supply in the active for attached and condos.”
