A new Sotheby’s report on the luxury sector shows sales of $1 million-plus homes in Montreal increased by 20 per cent to 104 units in the first two months of this year, while transactions in Canada’s two largest metropolitan areas flagged amid headwinds from government policy interventions.
“Montreal has been Canada’s ‘dark horse’ in luxury real estate,” said Brad Henderson, president and chief executive of Sotheby’s International Realty Canada. “For many years, political uncertainty and a stagnant economy tethered performance, but those factors have now dissipated. This spring, we expect strong gains that will set new records for the city.”
