Kind of a ho-hum week this week. Nothing to "out of the ordinary", but it does appear that the current trend is holding. Listings continue to report lower than last year at this time and the overall inventory is also reporting lower, and actually, the inventory gap is widening in the opposite direction for once. Whether the lack of inventory additions, met with the increase of buyer activity has changed things, but this market trend has definitely proven itself above an overnight affair. Sale prices continue to report lower and first time home products are still the dominant property being transacted, so what may appear to be a price correction could just be the case of lower valued properties being sold. In any case, the start of the year has proven to be a good one, and one that I'm sure has many eyes focused on the area. Thanks for stopping by!

Hello! My name is Emma. I am a lovely little girl looking for a special home. I am 3 years old and around 50 pounds. Although shy at first, I am a very affectionate dog who loves to be around people. I need to work on my socialization with other dogs, so a home where I am the only dog would make me happiest! I would love to go to obedience classes to learn new things and build confidence. My ideal family would be with someone who is home most of the time. I have exhibited signs of separation anxiety. A patient family who is willing to help me through my anxiety is a must! I love to play with toys and am quite active. I will be a very loving companion and best friend! Come meet me today!
This "cuddly companion" is available through the Homeward Bound City Pound, a non profit rescue organization from Halifax, Nova Scotia. More info about him, other adoptable's looking for their furever home, and ways to help or donate can be found by clicking HERE.
