Looks like our declining absorption rate streak has come to a halt! Biggest addition of inventory that we have seen this year so far, and the beginning of the month expired/renew cycle has a lot to do with it. Usually that number is a little skewed at the beginning of the month as many real estate contract terms expire on the first, so that means, the inventory that did expire from the market we can expect to see at least 60% has return immediately causing the fluctuation. On a positive note, the average single family home selling price in the HRM has hit over the 300k mark for the second time this year which may come as a surprise given the average value from last month (scroll down to find out more). Still a ways from catching up to the market this time last year, but its still early and we have a ways to go. Did you catch the news article about the patrol vessel contract? Interesting stuff and a good primer to the larger contract on the way! Whats your thoughts? Thanks for stopping by!
