The Summer is when I predicted that we would see the full impact from the activity that we experienced starting in November of last year, and things are starting to align. I'll start with our inventory, which is down over 450 products from this time last year with single family homes leading the way with over 400 less properties on the market this year. That is quite the feat! The sales week over week are performing better, as well, the sales to list ratio has also bested last year on average. There are a couple of things that remain at parody (or close to) however, stats such as expired/cancelled listings, days on market, and buyer activity...this week anyways. Values are holding strong and buyer activity is still up, so comparably, things should continue to improve for the market here in Halifax this year. Stay tuned to find out! Thanks for stopping by!
Rocko is a spunky 8 year old amstaff searching for a home to call his own. This boy LOVES making new people friends; he will roll around on the ground and wag his tail with so much enthusiasm, it almost becomes whip like! Rocko knows many different tricks: sit, paw, down, crawl, spin and even speak! This handsome boy is extremely food motivated so training would be easy peasy. Rocko loves chasing the laser pointer around and could do this for hours, such great entertainment for everyone around. We are recommending that Rockos new home have no other animals and kids over the age of 7 just where he is quite excitable and can be jumpy. If you're interested in meeting this beautiful boy, come on by during our adoption hours today :)
