Another solid week of activity as we head towards the final innings of the Spring Market. How did this Spring compare to other years? We certainly carried forward the buyer momentum that started late last year, and ended up with somewhat of a buildup, or market pressure, due to sellers coming late to market or not coming to market at all. The overall inventory is still way down from last year at this time, although we are starting to see new additions increase, but the buyer buildup is still in play...for now. Still lots of buyers out there making offers though, as reflected by the listings that changed status to conditional/pending, so there is a hope that the momentum carries through to the Summer months. Historically, Summer sees the slow taper of the inventory and overall activity as both buyer and seller look to take in the sunny days and warm weather, with a good amount of people wanting to be settled before the beginning of the school year. Still, there is many that do not have that consideration, and it doesn't appear that things will be slowing down anytime soon. Stay tuned to stay up to date with all that's happening here in the Halifax real estate market.
