Well that's a bit peculiar. The usual trend around this time of year has the inventory declining week to week, until it hits the lowest point of the year, which is usually around the last week of the year. However, this week decided to buck that trend by increasing in volume across all tracked products! Certainly interesting, especially with a hurricane that should have halted most activity for the week, when in fact, the market activity hardly skipped a beat! With sellers listing, buyers buying, and other buzzing activity going on, it goes to show that there doesn't seem to be much that is going to stop this market anytime soon, or is there? There are cracks in the veneer starting to show, with a slight reduction in the current week values, and days on market took a bump as well, but could those be regular attributes of the annual trend, or are they indicators that a bit more is happening? The market reports like a snake on the move; you may see the head of it right away, but you really don't get to see the overall size of it until the rest of the body catches up. So too is the market, where historical data can be marched to current reports to compare change, but the impact of the current report isn't measured until time has passed to solidify the change. So make sure you keep tuned to the Halifax Real Estate Blog to stay on top of things! Thanks for stopping by!
The Weekly Adogtable!!
Myers is a pretty friendly, happy-go-lucky dude. He was surrendered because of his skin allergies, but with a good quality food - his skin is coming around nicely! Myers just LOVES to play with other dogs, ignores cats and really enjoys going for walks. He is a vocal, happy boy that is energetic, and loves to chew on his chew toys and bones. Myers understands french commands, so will need help learning the english ones.
