So after a few false starts to the annual trend declination, things are finally starting to taper off. Inventory is down, listing additions are down, expiries are up, you know, the usual for this time of year. Looks like we had a pretty good sales week last year with the sales to list ratio coming in at 44%, close to the highest report of the year. This week is sitting at 30%, and if you can believe it, it's pretty darn close to the highest report of the year as well. The market is still a buzz with active buyers frequenting open houses, making inquires, and the odd offer. As long as the sunny weather holds out, I have a feeling that we will be milking this cow well into November. Thanks for stopping by and have a Happy Halloween!
Since October is "Pit Bull awareness" month, figured I would feature adoptable Pit Bull's all month. As many of you know, that breed is near and dear to my heart (Hamish & Bruin). The feature aDOGtable this week is a Damian. Although not much information is posted about Damian at this time, you can click on the picture to be taken to the website to contact the rescue.
He is currently being cared for by the NSPCA, a non-profit rescue organization out of Dartmouth, NS.
Details about this fella and others ready for a "furever" home including how to adopt, other dogs for adoption and ways to donate, can be found by clicking the picture :) Thank you for your consideration!
