Despite the drop, new condo sales so far this year are still 38-per-cent higher than the long-term average, and this year is on course to be the second-highest level, stated Bryan Tuckey, the CEO of BILD, which represents developers and builders. Meanwhile, low-rise sales are 27 per cent below the long term average and June's sales of low-rise homes were the lowest on record for that month.
