Toronto house-price slump ends with September rise

The Toronto Real Estate Board (TREB) said the average GTA home sold for $775,546 in September, up 5.9 per cent from August's average of $732,292.

Prices were up 2.6 per cent compared with September last year, but remain 15.8-per-cent lower than they were at the market's peak in April before the downturn began.
