Well alright! Looks like April 1st might not only be April fools day, but the unofficial start to the Spring market inventory launch? Listings flooded to the market this week, and a stampede of for sale signs found their rightful property injecting new blood into the market for weary buyers to welcome. Still, lots of sales, and even more listings that came under contract this week saying that there is still a buyer buldge out there looking for the right property. Multiple offers are still rampant in many areas of HRM, with some listings selling ten's of thousands over listing price. Which makes me wonder if properties being undervalued that badly, or is it that buyers who have lost a few bids are ready to pay a premium to finally get a property to accept their offer? Although eh inventory is on the rise for the second straight week, things are lean around the hot spots, getting snapped up within ours of going live. Definitely a challenging landscape for buyers out there, and possible one for Sellers too as things continue to change at a fevered pace. One seldom seen in Halifax/Dartmouth anyways. Stay tuned to the blog to stay on top of the market and keep informed! Thanks for stopping by!
The Weekly Adogtable!
Jack has two luxating patellas and is awaiting surgery to repair this. His owners could not afford the surgery so they surrendered him. Jack is an extremely sweet, calm, laid-back boy that just loves everyone. He is calm in his kennel, well socialized with people and animals and is comfortable with all physical manipulations. No resource guarding, takes treats slowly, and is a cuddle-bug extraordinaire! Not a barker even when someone knocks on the door!
This "cuddly companion" is available through Good Bones Dog Rescue, a non profit rescue organization from Halifax, Nova Scotia. More info about him and other adoptable's looking for their furever home, and ways to help or donate can be found by clicking HERE.
