Not an uncommon sight to see the inventory levels fluctuate up and down week to week, especially at the start of the year. There can be events that trigger higher or lower activity from week to week, and those can be as simple as a snow storm or as complicated as new mortgage rules. As we advance to the Spring market things still look in good shape. New listings are fairly average for this time of year, as are sales, which is why we didn't really see a budge in the overall inventory count. Values remain steady to kick of 2017, and no new major market statistic changes have been reported this week. The absorption rate is a bit higher than last year at this time, but if you have been following the blog since that time, the end of 2015 really set up a solid footing for the beginning of the 2016 market year, so it's a hard month to compete against Those stats can be found below, if interested, by simply scrolling down below last weeks market report. Looking forward to see what the rest of the winter season brings, and you'll have to stay tuned to the blog to follow along as well! Thanks for stopping by!
Loki is a young, handsome boy searching for a new home. This spunky boy has a ton of energy and he can't wait to release it with his new family! He is quite mouthy and jumpy, so he'll need some guidance on how to behave like a true pup but with some training this should take no time as he's super smart.
Loki would be best suited in a home:
-Free of other animals, both dogs and cats.
-Children over the age of 12.
-Highly active (runs, 2+ walks a day, hikes, dog sport).
-Proof of registration in obedience classes is required prior to adoption.
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
