Canadian Real Estate Association has improved its forecast for home re-sales. It sounds fairly upbeat but it is really just a slowdown in the sales retreat that has been underway since the new mortgage rules went into effect last July.

Nationally, May re-sales came in 2.6% lower than a year earlier. But what CREA finds encouraging is the 3.6% increase in May over April. It is the biggest month-over-month jump in nearly two and a half years and it has the association adjusting its annual forecast to a 2.5% decline. That is an improvement over the earlier projection for a 2.9% decline. It is the first upgrade following three consecutive downward revisions.

The national average price for a home in May came in at a little less than $389,000, up 3.7% from a year ago. CREA expects to see the average price for 2013 increase by 2.
