With the weather being so kind to us in our fair city, it looks like more people are out enjoying the heat and getting out there to check out properties. New listing additions remain lower week over week compared to this time last year, but sales are up in the same regard. Although sales remain tepid, the overall inventory level and sales rate has actually caused a two week gain to the absorption rate. Odd, beings the stats are pointing in the opposite direction, but we did see a bit of a lag in the last few weeks. Values remain steady and we have seen a marginal gain over this year last time, which is a normal trend year over year. There has been peaks and valleys with sales value, but overall, prices trend in the upwards direction annually, however marginal. Many were holding their breath waiting for the price peaks to correct in the face of our inflated market, and some areas have, however Nova Scotians held steady to their listed prices causing what has been noted as a minor correction. This is still a new event however and still developing, so make sure to stay tuned to get the summary and overall impact as we get heated in the Summer months. Thanks for stopping by!
Tila is a sweet and energetic older amstaff mix in need of a home to spend the rest of her days. Tila came in to the pound full of lumps and bumps, so the poor gal has already gone through two major surgeries to remove some mammary tumors that hopefully won't be returning. Tila should go to a home with no other animals, as she does get pretty protective over her toys and sometimes food. She's a very relaxed girl with spurts of energy at times so a fairly laid back home would be just fine :)
