Is it October already? It's certainly been a year for the books so far, and I'm sure with another blink, it will all be concluded. Time isn't the only thing that continues to move quickly this year, the various property products are also flying off the shelves. The hardest hit areas remain closer to the core, but a seemingly impossible purchase task at certain price points has the ripple effect pushing out to outlying areas. The entry level ($200k-280k) has been seen the most impact, but the going theory is that the price point just above them has no where to go, or can't find a viable option, so they are just staying put. Buyers want to buy, but inventory is falling to record lows, with no real indication that the drop is going to end anytime soon.
Out of this market though, new construction companies are certainly seeing a bump in activity. With the need to get more space, or locate to a different region, new construction has become a go to for some buyers based on the fact that they can plan their move better. Of course, that doesn't help people who need to be on or near the peninsula, since the new construction zones are on the outside of the 102 on the Halifax side, and outside of the 111 on the Dartmouth side. Neither of which is a commuters dream. Somethings got to give eventually, so stay tuned to the blog to stay on top of the market and make a plan! Thanks for stopping by!
The Weekly Adogtable!!
JoJo is a ~7 year old neutered male amstaff mix.
He would prefer a home with adults only.
Obedience is optional for her new owner(s).
He would prefer an only pet home, and no apartments/condos.
Don't let JoJo's size intimidate you, he is a very sweet boy looking for his forever home! JoJo loves to go for a nice walk then have a nice relaxing nap to follow up. On days where the weather isn't co-operating for his usual walk, he has just as much fun playing with his toys. After a good play session he is ready to follow up with a nice nap and cuddle time. If you want to meet this handsome guy, please inquire with staff today!
This "cuddly companion" is available through the Nova Scotia SPCA, 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.
