Looks like we are heading in the opposite direction again. After two short weeks of marginal inventory gain, this weeks reduction pretty much erased what little increase there was. All tracked products reduced this week, with single family homes being the most significant. Could it be the lack of new products added this week, the relentless sales, the weather? Whatever it is, 2019 has started off on a very unusual note, with no clear indication that things are about to change back anytime soon. Speaking of unrelenting sales, it looks like another chunk of products are about to switch over to the sale pile according to the listings that went conditional/pending this week. So, despite the frosty blast of winter this week, the market here in Halifax remains red hot. Expired listings are down quite significantly this week compared to last year at this time as well, which comes as no surprise since things are flying off the shelves. Not even the Spring market and it has basically been performing like it since the beginning of the year. It will be interesting to see what the Spring market actually brings! Stay tuned to find out! Thanks for stopping by!
The Weekly Adogtable!
Dobby was found as a stray. He is tolerant with touching all over, is crate trained, and barks to greet you. He is excited with other dogs, but has a fearful disposition of strangers. Dobby is playful and affectionate once he gets to know you, but is anxious and fearful of new things.
We often see this with dogs who need confidence boosts, which will be worked on while he is in our care. His new family will need to build his trust and confidence as well. Dobby pulls on his leash (a freedom harness will help with this) and is selective with toys.
This "cuddly companion" is available through Marleys Hope, 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.
