Average report on the market this week. No real highs, and no real lows... just average, or similar stat showings as the previous few weeks. New listing additions reported a touch lower than usual, and this is the first week in awhile that there was less than 300 properties that hit the market in a single week. Sales are a touch down this week as well, in match with last week, which was also down roughly 20 units from the previous weeks on average. Buyer activity seems to be down as well this week, with a lower than usual (what we have been used to this year) 151 properties that received and accepted offers. This was a fairly sharp drop in activity since we were getting used to seeing close to 200 properties under contract each week during this year, but much like I mentioned last week, Summer usually signals the slow decline across the board for activity. So this is a normal, or trend event, and no need to panic! Still lots of activity out there, but you can feel it, the winds are changing. Could just be a bump in the road, or it could be the normal market trend, you will have to check in to the blog to find out! Thanks for stopping by!
Bolt is ready for a new home!
The Weekly Adogtable!
Bolt is a lovely little beagle/amstaff mix who is searching for a home to call his own. This spunky guy LOVES to play and gets along great with doggy-friends, although doesn't particularly like sharing his food with others. Given his high prey drive, a home without cats is recommended for this fella. Bolt is a very social boy who enjoys making new people friends, of any age. He working hard on his manners and could use some more training to ensure he keeps them up.
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
