Not a great start to the year, but I guess that is to be expected after the last few years performance. Lots of properties flood back onto the market this week, and it's a race back to active for most of the sellers that weren't able to sell last year. Still, if there was any stat to eye it was the single family home price spread from list to sell. The winter does hold a challenge for sellers, and a soft market does't help either, but the average spread for reduction this week was $20,000!! Thats a lot given we usually see a 8-11k fluctuation in that area. It is however, the start of the year. Deuces are wild and anything goes, so strap in and enjoy the ride. Lets just see if this week is an indicator of things to come, or just another speed bump on the road to recovery? And of course, I will be here to report the ever changing landscape of our market here in Halifax, so stay tuned! Thanks for stopping by!
