QUEBEC CITY, July 07, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Quebec Professional Association of Real Estate Brokers (QPAREB) has just released its most recent residential real estate market statistics for the Quebec City Census Metropolitan Area (CMA), based on the real estate brokers Centris provincial database.

In total, 924residential sales transactions were concluded in June 2020, a 47 per cent increase compared to June of last year.

The real estate market in the Quebec City CMA rebounded strongly in June, once again posting a level of sales that has remained well above that of the other CMAs since the start of the health crisis in late March, despite the restrictions placed on brokerage activities," said Julie Saucier, president and chief executive officer of the QPAREB. The market continues its astonishing momentum that nothing seems to be able to stop. In the past year, despite the increase in sales, we had not observed a significant drop in active listings in the Quebec City CMA, except for April and May when the market was put on hold. June is the first month we can confirm a significant tightening of market conditions."
