Board president Paul Etherington in a statement said “A reasonable amount of pent-up demand in place, especially when it links to the low rise market segment (detached, semi-detached and town homes)” .

Even the sales of condos and town homes surged as purchasers, realizing they may be blocked out of the home market totally, immediately switched to the most available and affordable product.
