And here it is folks, the last post of 2016! What a whirlwind year, and no doubts a very interesting one for our market here in Halifax. Lots of improvement in several areas of the market, and it continues to improve as we approach the new year. As you can see, this week reports the lowest amount of activity accross the board for the year, but that doesn't mean inquiries and interest have stopped, quite opposite really. I will have the annual 2016 market report up in the first week of January, so be sure to stop by and see just how we faired compared to the last few years. I know I'm very excited to get it put together, and even more interested to se the results.
I just wanted to take this opportunity to wish you all a Happy New Year! Don't forget to check this weeks adoptable, and the others that are availible who are waiting for their Christmas miricle. Looking to buy or sell in the new year? I would be pleased to assist with all of your property needs, so please do not hesitate to reach out!
Gunner is a sweet, young amstaff looking for his new start on life. Although Gunner may sometimes appear very shy and submissive, he quickly warms up with any amount of affection and almost immediately begins looking for snuggles and loves. He's quite jumpy and mouthy in play, so definitely no young children (12+ only) for this exuberant guy! Due to his dominant dog-to-dog personality, Gunner is a lone wolf- we recommend no other dogs in the home and no kitties, as he tends to think of them as toys to play with! If Gunner sounds like your kind of guy, come on in and meet him today!!!
This "cuddly companion" is available through Homeward Bound City Pound, a non profit rescue organization from Dartmouth, 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
