Looks like Sellers were still hibernating from the small, but vicious, winter Halifax was blasted with in the last couple of weeks. Certainly, with the weather improving and the sun starting to shine, Sellers will start planning their strategy on how to attack the selling market this year. Buyers are still actively on the search however, and it really didn't seem like the white stuff could keep them at bay from getting out there and adventuring through their home search. Activity was down this week overall compared to this time last year, but the sleepy market seems to be shaking off the snow piles, and emerging from the blanket of white with vigour. The lack of listing activity this week has stunted the inventory a bit, but I anticipate those stats will change in the coming weeks as we approach the most popular time to list...Spring! Single family home inventory is still reporting lower than this year last time, but the same can't be said about condos, which was the lower reporting inventory for a good chunk of the 2016 market year. With the weather heating up, hopefully, the market follows suit. Stay tuned to find out if it's boom or bust by checking out the Halifax Real Estate Blog regularly! Thanks for stopping by!

Storm walks like a dream on leash, knows basic commands and a release work of "okay" to eat. She is a real compact wiggle butt and exciteable .She is crate trained, house broken , people friendly , kids okay too.

She lives with another active lrg breed pup and two cats. She sniffs the cats then leaves them alone . She meets dogs better when off leash tahn on or through a barrier like a fence like a majority of dogs. She does fear react to dogs on leashed walks so enrolment in training is necessary to adopt storm. . Her bark is not loud but a muffled sounding one.
