The 2019 Royal LePage Market Survey Forecast was released to the media.

Key highlights from the national release include:

  • According to the 2019 Royal LePage Market Survey Forecast released today, home prices across the country are expected to appreciate at a low single digit rate in 2019. Nationally, the median price of a home is forecast to increase slightly by 1.2 per cent to $638,257.
  • The 2019 market owes its tepid pace to a host of uncertainties beyond the price overshooting of recent years. This includes slowly rising interest rates, global trade risks, the persistently low price of Canadian export oil, and regulatory intervention, particularly in British Columbia.
  • When comparing major metropolitan regions nationwide, the median price of a home in the Greater Montreal Area is expected to see the largest gains, with home prices expected to rise by 3.0 per cent to $421,306.

A big thank you to all of our spokespeople from across the country for their contributions in providing regional perspectives. Regional insights can be found within the national release.
