The average price of residential properties sold last month in the GTA fell from a record high in April as Canada’s largest housing market feels the psychological impact of a tax on foreign home buyers.
The figures released Thursday by the Toronto Real Estate Board (TREB) show the average price of homes decreased 13.8 per cent in June from April’s high.
