In an strange plot twist, sales actually reported lower this week compared to last year. Not a huge impact however, as listings reported lower this week, so they somewhat balanced themselves out. This year has been trucking along, smashing last years stats to pieces for the most part, but the second half of the year so far has somewhat limped along. Still early in the second half however, so I wouldn't count the remaining market year out quite yet. It wasn't just sales that hit a wall this week either, as buyer activity across the board is down for the second week in a row. Inventory reduced this week however, but the large gap between the 2017 and 2018 market year remains steady, hovering just under the 600 product mark. That number has fluctuated throughout the year, and at this time, we are slightly edging out the beginning of the year, which was reporting over a 600 product difference. The big edge the 2018 market year holds is the absorption rate, reporting 6 weeks better than last year. Although, if you take the sales pace of this year compared to last years inventory there is only a 3 week gap. Interesting times indeed! Is the 2017 market year due for a comeback? You'll have to stay tuned to find out! Thanks for stopping by, and don't forget to hit the like button at the bottom of this weeks post!
The Weekly Adogtable
Dodger is a active pup who is ready to take on the world and the hiking trails! He would love nothing better than to set the pace, so he would thrive best with an active family who can keep up with him. Dodger is eager to learn and aims to please. While he is typically polite when greeting new doggy friends, he also tends to get excitable and a bit pushy, so he could benefit from learning some social cues with other pets who are willing to put up with him!
Dodger would do best in a home environment:
-With or without other pets
-With children over the age of 7 years
Dodger's adoption is by appointment only. To schedule an appointment, send us an email at email@example.com
This "cuddly companion" is available through Homeward Bound City Pound, 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
