But listings slowed from March's level during the month, coming in 4.8 per cent lower. It was the slowest April for new listings in nine years, CREA said.Sales were down in 60 per cent of all markets, led by the Fraser Valley in British Columbia, along with markets in and around the Golden Horseshoe area in southern Ontario.
