The Quebec Professional Association of Real Estate Brokers says Montreal’s September home sales dropped to their lowest level in almost 10 years as the market continued to cool.

The region recorded 2,537 sales last month, a 30 per cent decrease from last September and the lowest number of September sales since 2013.

The association says those numbers indicate the region did not experience the usual back-to-school rebound that brings increased sales to the market.
