Looks like the we aren't quite done with that hot Spring market just yet! Although there has been less activity over the past few weeks, the activity reported is no less significant than that of the previous weeks reports. This week is no exemption from the trend, although it is a bit more obvious than the last couple of weeks that the hot market has returned. Reports where almost pointing to a sliding scale back to the side of normalcy, but the numbers this week are proving anything but. Although, the half of the year that we have checked in the box has set its own trend, which may make these reports seem normal. I still think there are a lot of folks behind the times when it comes to market trends, which is quite normal I would say, since the average person has no real need to engage the information unless they are involved in the market in someway, or have an interest in the subject matter. In 2012/13 people where quite taken back to here me say that the market was quite a challenge to sell in, maybe since the years leading up to 2011/12 were good market years. And so true is today, where many people are a bit over zealous based on the "buyers market" that has loomed over the market since, not realizing how quickly the tables turn. In any case, you can always stop by here to get a feel for whats happening out there in the Halifax real estate market, and I thank you for stopping by!
The Weekly Adogtable!
Meadow is as peaceful as her name suggests. Her eyes are certainly an expression of her gentle soul! She enjoys gentle walks, good company and taking naps. If you enjoy these things as well, she will be a great addition to your family.
Besides a quiet home, Meadow would be good with children and does not seem to mind cats. She would prefer to be the only dog though!
This "cuddly companion" is available through Homeward Bound City Pound, a non profit rescue organization from Halifax, Nova Scotia. More info about her, other adoptable's looking for their furever home, and ways to help or donate can be found by clicking HERE
