A few notes right off the top; definitely a lot less products pulling from the market, and many more listings that changed to conditional/pending this week compared to last year this time. Some of the other stats are reporting averagely, and some are actually reporting a little lacklustre, like sales and price changes. Overall inventory took a slight reduction this week, and is still a good step on the bulk of last year, but this was the time that a balanced market started to embrace several areas of the region. Since then, the market has improved little by little, and we are now experiencing areas that are seeing a sellers market. Beginning of September was almost the turning point in the red hot market up to that point, and although activity remains steady in the Fall so far, the first three quarters of the market year certainly had the accelerator pinned to the floor. Still lots of time left though, and as we approach the Winter (already), all eyes focus to the horizon in anticipation of the cresting market.

The Weekly Adogtable!
Schooner's personality is as big as he is! He's a happy-go-lucky dog that loves to play and be around people. He's one smart cookie too! He knows many commands but definitely needs a family that can teach him his manners and keep him active and busy. With the right leadership, he's sure to be a great walking or hiking buddy.
Schooner's ideal home:
- With children over the age of 12
- With no other animals
- Obedience training mandatory upon adoption
This "cuddly companion" is available through Homeward Bound City Pound, a non profit rescue organization from Halifax, Nova Scotia. More info about him and other adoptable's looking for their furever home, and ways to help or donate can be found by clicking HERE
