Toronto benchmark home prices fell for a fourth-straight month, a record-breaking streak of declines that some economists warn could become an historic downturn in Canada’s real estate market. 

The home-price index in Canada’s largest city declined 3.9% in July from the month earlier, bringing the total drop since April to 13.3%, according to data released Thursday by the Toronto Regional Real Estate Board. That’s the worst four-month performance since the measure started being tracked in 2005.
