FXstreet.com (Barcelona) - The team at Capital Economics have had a look at the recent slump in Canadian home sales and believe it may suggest that a housing correction is underway.

They write, "Assuming that sales continue to trend lower over the remainder of this year, then the typical lag relationship between sales and prices indicates that house prices will eventually follow suit early next year."

They finish by maintaining their belief that house prices will decline by 25% over the next year or two.
