Look like another week in the right direction! New listing additions are on par with last week, which isn't the norm for this time of year. The trend right around now is for listings from last year, and some new additions, to start pouring back onto the market. This week stayed relatively the same, and reported again, lower than last week. Sales last week came in just above last years totals, with nine more units of change. Values are up in the two tracked products, however, days on market spiked from the previous week, and reported higher than the year before as well. Because of the positive activity this week, we witnessed a reduction in the absorption rate, which is not typical for this time of year. So more positive momentum as we hit the mid marker for January, with stats going in the right direction. Make sure to stay tuned to the blog to keep a pulse on our ever changing market!
Hello, I'm Rudy! I am a big, goofy boy looking for a loving home. I like being around people and love affection! I love to sit as close as possible to people to receive all the attention I can. I weigh about 80 pounds and still have more growing to do so I'll need a home that is suitable for an extra large dog like me! I have some resource guarding, I don't like to share my food, and will need a home with no young children (under 12 years old). Obedience classes are mandatory upon my adoption to help me learn proper manners and gain confidence. I met another dog here and just didn't know what to do, I wanted to play but was too afraid. I am going to require more socialization before I can comfortably be around other dogs. I was nervous of the cats too, so an only animal home would make me the happiest. I am a very loving dog who has the potential to make someone a wonderful friend.
