Home sales in Canada’s largest metropolis slowed down for the third largest month in a row, according to numbers released from the Toronto Real Estate Board. That came as new listings rose nearly 16 per cent, and as active listings surged over the year before.

The next few months will be crucial in determining whether the Toronto housing market has simply stumbled, or if this is the start of a deeper correction.
