Would you look at that sales to list ratio! That would be the highest percentage we have seen this year so far, and I would dare say the highest in last few years overall. There is a few factors influencing that report, but the biggest one is certainly the lack of new listings that are coming to market each week. We have had somewhat of a seller reluctance to test the market this year, that, or there's just not as many people needing to sell their property. Overall, the lower amount of new additions week over week has caused a bit of buyer frustration and lack of selection, something that hasn't been felt across the city in a few years. Sales remain strong, and so to is the buyer activity, with another week of around 20o listings that received and accepted offers. Values remain solid, and days on market are down on average from this time last year. The market here has definitely undergone a bit of a transformation from last year, which has some folks rejoicing and others a bit frustrated. In any case, it has been an interesting year so far, and I'm looking forward to seeing how the Spring momentum carries over to the Summer months. Stay tuned to find out, and thanks for stopping by!
Ari is on the hunt for a new family. A young retriever, she is true to her breed and loves being outdoors exploring and/or playing in the water. She fetches like a dream and releases toys readily. She loves her humans so much, she can't contain her excitement and will talk quite regularly. Ari is a very anxious dog, and would prefer a home where she is not left alone for long periods. Her adoption requirements as follows:
A home free of other animals as she has a high prey drive - large dogs scare her, small dogs and cats she will chase.
A home with children over the age of 8 is suitable.
A country home would be best (no apartments for this girl).
A highly active family.
Come meet Ari today!
This "cuddly companion" is available through Homeward Bound City Pound, a non profit rescue organization from Halifax, 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
