As the supposed hottest month of the year (weather wise anyways) comes to a close, the anticipation of a summer market recovery looks more and more unlikely. The market this week looks very familiar, that's because the numbers are strikingly similar to this time last year, and we all know what happened at this time last year. For the second week in a row, new listing additions remain under the 300 mark and sales creep towards mediocre. Single family home and condo values are holding steady as well, with marginal decrease over the past few weeks it's almost as if overall price is reducing. Prices have remained in line with last years values over the past few weeks, and it will be interesting to see what impact it will have on the monthly report.
The monthly statistics wrap up for August 2013 will be posted on the 1st of September. Thanks for stopping by!
The feature aDOGtable this week is Milo. Milo made his way from Montreal to Nova Scotia to start a new life. He is a sweet, gentle boy. Gets along great with other dogs, not a fan of cats though. Great in the car and knows basic commands in English and French! Needs a little work on the leash but all in all a great dog. He will love your furever if you make him your boy.
He is currently being cared for by East Coast German Shepherd Rescue from Dartmouth, a non-profit rescue organization.
Details about this fella and others ready for a "furever" home including how to adopt, other dogs for adoption and ways to donate, can be found by clicking the picture :) Thank you for your consideration!
