Looks like we have hit the peak of the year, and have started our slow decline into the remainder of the year. Hello everyone, and thanks for stopping by the Halifax Real Estate Blog. Activity appears to have tapered off a bit this week with most many stats reporting below average. New listing additions are down, sales are down,and listing's that went conditional are also down. Really, the only thing that is up is the number of expired/cancelled listings (by a lot), and the absorption rate (which isn't a good thing). Values remain steady however, and they have remained so this year albeit with a few ups and downs. Hopefully this is just a speed bump week on the market, and the remaining Summer months end up getting back on track. Historically however, Summer tends to be one of the slowest times on the market, and it's starting to look like this year isn't any different. Stay tuned for the latest market updates, including the June monthly summary!
Madonna is looking for a family that can show her how to be a true dog! This gal has been lacking proper socialization, so she is hoping her new family can enrol her in obedience classes. She does get along with other dogs, but a proper introduction is recommended. Madonna is quite playful and would love to have an active family that can take her to all kinds of fun places. Energy release is key!
