We hit a milestone this week on the blog! It has been a year since starting to report the total Halifax/Dartmouth inventory, which by my calculation is 650 more then last year. It's all areas of inventory that are up as well. Single family home inventory is up by 14% while condos increased by a whopping 37%! The sales to list ratio was down significantly again this week, but that's large in part to the time of the year. Mind you, last year at this time we where up by 7 points. Values are down a little this week, as are the days on market for both categories. Inquiries are starting to pick up however, and the warmer weather may be giving buyers a false start to the season. Whatever it it, here's to hoping we get some energy pumped into a slumping market, and get back on track to a healthier state. What's your predictions for the 2014 Halifax property year? Thanks for stopping by!
Scotia is a wonderfully sweet and well behaved girl. She is 6 years old and loves people. She is not all that fond of some other dogs, and she will chase cats so we recommend that she is an only child. Scotia weighs approx. 45 pounds, is very well behaved and exceptionally trained, she listens very well, loves the car, walks well on leash and would look great walking beside you. She is a gorgeous girl inside and out.
This beauty is available through Litters 'N Critters, a non profit rescue organization from Halifax, Nova Scotia. More info about this and other adoptable's looking for their forever home, and ways to help or donate can be found by clicking the picture.
