Hope everyone has remembered to bookmark halifaxrealestateblog.ca! Looks like the final blows have been dealt, and the market is ready to follow annual trend to the mat. All areas have reduced this week, significantly, signalling the slow decline into the fall/winter market. Activity overall has declined (exception being new additions, which is abnormally high this week), but even with amount of new additions this week, inventory is still on the downward trend. Values remain strong this week, but well below that of the spring and summer market, and seem to remain on the market longer than average. I would say that's because the listings currently active have waited out the spring/summer market, and where some choose to pull form the competition, some decide to stick around. The ones that do decide to keep the selling fire lit may find themselves in a position that they had hoped for, or at the least, a renewed hope of activity. Thanks for stopping by!
THE WEEKLY ADOGTABLE
Blue is a young, active dog searching for a home to call his own. He would LOVE a family that can take him on lots of adventures, as he loves the outdoors. Blue's new family will need to enrol him in obedience classes upon adoption. This will ensure that he learns proper manners, and that his new family can handle anything that comes their way! Blue has yet to be tested with dogs, but if you have a current dog feel free to arrange a meeting with us! He can be quite jumpy and mouthy, so we ask that he be homed with children over the age of 12. This big boy has lots of love to give, and can't wait to share it with you!.
This "cuddly companion" is available through 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.
