Hold on sellers, there may be hope yet! For the third consecutive week we have seen a balance come over the market and some inventory finally start to move. Some areas of the city are lighting up with renewed activity and certain mid price point homes (300K-450k) are being hunted. Areas of Beaverbank, Sackville, Hammonds Plains and Fall River are really starting to attract attention by home shoppers and more activity is expected this month with the Military Relocation Program starting its posting season. Another product that is being sought after are investments. From house flippers to multi-residential, and even land developers have increased their push to grab a piece of the Halifax pie. Looks like the warm weather did make its impact on things around here, just have to wait to see how long it lasts.
