Welcome to the peak of the season! June seems to be the month that sees both peak of activity, and the subtle turnaround to decline for the remaining year...typically anyways. This year has proven to be anything put predictable. Just when you think the market is trending in one direction, it takes a completely different one, even if it's only for a week. The story so far this year however, is the continuation of our strengthening market. Yes, strengthening. Since the turnaround of late 2016, we have seen the numbers perform better week over week, month over month, turning what used to be a Buyers market into a balanced market in such a short time. There are areas of the HRM that are seeing Sellers markets in some cases! If the stats keep trending the way they have been, I would say that is right where we are destined to end up. With the continued strong sales/low weekly inventory addition combo, the absorption rate continues to decline, so the question remains, where will it stop. Stay tuned to find out! Thanks for stopping by!
The Weekly Adogtable!
If you're looking for an adventurous four-legged friend this summer, come and meet Sophia! Sophia not only enjoys the water, but loves long walks, games of fetch and tug-of-war. She loves the great outdoors and lounging in the sun on warm days. If you have a summer bucket list, Sophia would love to accomplish these things with you!
Sophia's ideal home would be:
- Without other animals
- With children over the age of 12
Sophia gets excited very easily and will benefit from leadership and obedience. Because of this, registration with obedience classes is mandatory upon adoption. She also prefers the company of people over animals so no dogs or cats for her.
This "cuddly companion" is available through Good Bones Dog Rescue, 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
