For the second straight week we are seeing a very similar trend, reduced buyer activity and more sellers coming to market. Although buyer activity is still solid and reporting higher than last year at this time, there was a significant drop in offer activity (as noted by listings that changed status to conditional/pending). Still, there was a chunk of inventory that sold this week, reporting on par with the last few weeks, giving the sales to list ratio a strong presence. The unsung statistic however is the absorption rate. Although it appears that sales are strong, buyer activity mid-high, the absorption rate gained an additional three weeks this week, pointing to a slower season ahead. We are still eleven weeks less this year compared to last for the absorption rate however, so it's safe to say the first half of the year has been a success. Hot Summer days may distract potential buyers or sellers from their task, and with a great line up of events this year in Halifax it may keep folks away until the fall! Regardless of distraction, the market dance will continue, so make sure to stop by to stay on top of things! Thanks for stopping by!
