Halifax real estate average selling price
April was an interesting real estate month. Seems to be getting harder to predict the market trend from month to month lately. For the second time this year the average sale price of Halifax homes dipped below previous years values. May be an indicator of the continuing correction.
Halifax real estate inventory
Well, we expected a jump in the inventory for this time of year but April numbers blasted off! From third highest inventory reported in over a decade to second spot, this months skyward inventory climb is on pace to take top dog!

Another thing we finally experienced in April was a sales rebound. Not a great start to the year, especially last month, but April caught up to the rear of the pack with a good sales performance. Hopefully this momentum carries on!
Lots of good activity starting to buzz around town. House hunting trips are in full swing for military and other relocation folks, good attendance reports at open houses and general inquires are up %100 (feels like it anyways). Still quite a few overpriced units on the market right now so if you have been trying to sell for a while now (over 8 weeks) and your viewings are becoming less frequent, it may be time to re-evaluate the market situation. How are neighbours reacting to the market correction? Am I the most expensive home on the block/neighbourhood? Is my marketing effective? How does my house present...maybe I should consider staging. I have seen many listings this week that are not getting the proper advice on which direction to go with a market that changes weekly. And as the prime season begins you may just find yourself beat out by the 5,060 other listings currently for sale. Not having a plan for the long term is a recipe for disappointment, stress and ultimately a stale listing. Thanks for stopping by!
