August witnessed 859 new home sales, a good month, but still down 12.8% from last year. Trimart is reporting that the shortage of inventory in the low-rise market in the Greater Toronto Area is the chief factor in the 12.8% decline. With the number of new home releases scheduled in September, along with the traditional upswing of the fall market, Trimart expects September's numbers to be much improved.
