Canadian new house prices climbed in September, largely reflecting strength in the greater Vancouver market.
Canada's new housing price index rose 0.2% in September on a month-over-month basis, Statistics Canada said Thursday. The increase was in line with market expectations, according to economists at Royal Bank of Canada.
On a 12-month basis, Canadian new house prices increased 3.8% in September.
The data covers prices for newly built single-detached and semidetached residences and row houses. It doesn't incorporate prices for new condominiums.
