Toronto and Vancouver added some seven per cent to the national house price increase in March. With that kind of sway power, those cities are making national statistics seem highly irrelevant.

We want to know: Are CREA's housing reports accurate? Or is the national market quickly becoming a story of haves and have-nots?

    CREA should definitely publish a separate set of stats for non-metropolitan areas. Eliminate Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Winnipeg, and Toronto, (and possibly Ottawa & Montreal) and consumers in the rest of the country would have much more relevant information (and more realistic expectations).

    Certain residential price ranges ($350-450k) are still strong here in Calgary- if listed at the Market. This theme carries over to the Commercial markets as well- except for the CBD downtown office sector. There you have the opportunity for many sublease office entry points, with rates & inducements negotiable. City Land for development, serviceable is always at a premium it seems due to its shortage.
