Well, it looks like it was a couple week blip after all. This week saw the inventory increase after two anomaly weeks of decline, although, the gain is hardly worth mentioning since it's so small. Sales took a bit of a kick down this week, but still performed well, and will be returning to its full strength shortly given the amount of properties that reported an accepted offer this week (conditional/pending stat). Not a lot of listings that fell off the market this week by an expiry or cancellation, which is fairly typical given the time of year. Not as many price changes this week compared to last year at this time though, which might speak to the health of the market as well. Absorption rate held steady at 15 weeks again this week, and is still smoking last years report by a whopping 7 weeks. Overall values remain strong, and the median values for both tracked products are holding at a plus of $10k increased from last year at this time. It seems like a lot the spillage from the 2018 market year is being tended to as properties get snapped up, but there still seems to be that heavy demand in certain areas. The end of Spring has brought a bit of a different market, it seems, and we are sure to see overall activity start it's downward trend anytime now. Things are still moving at a rapid pace though, but there does seem to be a few more options for buyers around HRM. Still a couple weeks left until the Summer market takes hold, so stay tuned to the blog to see how the Spring finishes! Thanks for stopping by!
The Weekly Adogtable!
Sweet Annie is a bit timid at first but it only takes her a minute to warm up and she becomes a silly, playful goofball. When left alone Annie has been known to eat things that upset her belly. To be specific, socks! Annie required surgery to remove a sock she had ingested so her new home would need to be mindful of what they leave lying around. Poor Annie was quite sick but would likely make the same mistake again if given the opportunity. Crate training would be recommended to keep her and your belongings safe. Annie would love to go to a home with children no younger than 12 years of age and no other dogs.
