Little bit of market reluctancy this week as most statistics remain relatively on par with the last few weeks. So normal decline is being ignored, and market activity is actually up! If you have read the blog before yo will know that I believe that this is the "sweet spot" to sell your home in. Most people think the spring is the best, but the fall is my horse to bet on. Listings are down or declining, sale to list is up, lots of products coming off the market and there always seems to be a burst of buyers right after school starts. All other number look relatively intact, and both products edge over 3 months of exposure before deciding which way to go if there is no sale. Let's hope the momentum keeps going, but most likely, as soon as the snow fly's we will see our market return to normal.
Hi my name is Chevy , I am a sweet little girl that has a lot of energy , I love rough and tumble play with my foster brother and can be quite feisty when I get excited , I will require a firm leader who won't allow me to get away with this behavior just because I am cute!
Like any pup my age I am a clean slate so will be able to live in pretty much any household , cats kids other dogs would be fine. I am going to need regular exercise as well as mental stimulation , so a home where I am not going to be left all day crated whilst you are at work is what I need , puppy socialization/obedience classes are also mandatory for anyone who would like to make me a part of their family.
I will be fully vetted soon and then ready for my forever home
