I can tell you what most people weren't doing this holiday weekend...buying property! haha. Even listing activity was down, but that slash in buyer activity with an 89 point drop was significant. It was a perfect weekend for weather, and lots of great activities around the province to check out, so it's no doubt that a bump like this is likely to occur every once in awhile. Oddly enough, this week also witnessed a turn-around in the inventory department. Both vacant land and single family home amounts increased, which in turn sent the overall inventory level back up! Strange times indeed, since we are usually in a downward trend around this time of year. It is still a busy market, although the pace has seems to be trending downwards, but all that can change with a few weeks of activity in either direction. You'll have to stay tuned to the blog to find out how the rest of the Summer reports! Thanks for stopping by, and don't forget to hit the like button at the end of the post :)
The Weekly Adogtable
Paddy is a happy-go-lucky boy with a heart of gold and a sparkling personality. He prefers people to toys and would love to take you for a walk outdoors. He shows his affection through licks and grunts which just adds to the cuteness!
Paddy still needs to work on his manners so his future family should be committed to working with him or enrolling him in obedience classes.
Paddy's ideal home:
- With children over the age of 10
- With or without other animals
Paddy's adoption is by appointment only. To schedule an appointment, send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
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
