Now that's more like it! Finally, after a few shaky weeks of reduction, the Spring inventory gain gets off the ground with a decent overall increase this week. It's not huge, but it's a start! All tracked products increased their numbers this week, with single family homes seeing the most. Good news for Buyers, but it's going to take a bit more than one week of half decent additions to make an impact for the bulk of them waiting to find the right property. Seems listings weren't the only numbers are the rise, overall sales reported higher than average, and so too did the number of properties that received and accepted offers (pending), the sales to list ratio, and product values across the board. All good things! The numbers you want decreasing are still doing so too, like the absorption rate, time on market, the number of products retreating from the market and most importantly...the absorption rate. So it's back to "business as usual" for the hot Halifax market, so stay tuned to the blog to keep tabs on things as the market season heats up! Thanks for stopping by!
The Weekly Adogtable!
Ninja was found abandoned and no one has claimed him. He is OK with dogs and kids but has not been cat tested as of yet. He exhibits no food aggression with humans or dogs. Extremely affectionate and smiles. Is afraid of men at first (will cower) but comes around. More updates to come as we get to know this cutie patootie.
This "cuddly companion" is available through Good Bones Dog Rescue, a non profit rescue organization from Halifax, Nova Scotia. More info about him and other adoptable's looking for their furever home, and ways to help or donate can be found by clicking HERE.
