This is the latest housing report from CMHC and it indicates that resale prices moderated in 2008 but were strong in 2009

Housing starts: After a slow start in 2009, housing starts will become stronger by the end of 2009 and average 141,900 units. In 2010, starts will increase to approximately 164,900 units.

Resales: Sales of existing homes through the Multiple Listing Service® MLS®) have become more robust since the start of 2009. The strong pace of resales reflects , in part, activity that was delayed in the previous two quarters of 2009 and is likely not to be sustained. MLS® resales will be about 441,300 units for 2009, up from 433,990 units in 2008.

As far as 2010 is concerned, there will be approximately 445,150 units sold.

Resale prices: After a few years of strong gains, the average MLS® price moderated in 2008 to $303,607.

Recently, however, average prices have recovered. The average MLS® price is expected to increase to $312,950 in 2009 and to $324,500 in 2010.
