Covid 19 Update

Nova Scotia’s current border policy of isolation based on vaccination status and testing will remain in place for travellers coming from provinces and territories outside of Atlantic Canada.

As of 8 a.m. on Aug. 25, the border policy will also apply to people coming from New Brunswick due to a rise of COVID-19 activity in that province. Workers and students who frequently cross the border with New Brunswick and people who need to make quick trips will not have to self-isolate as long as they follow the same Nova Scotia-New Brunswick travel protocol that they followed earlier this year.

People moving to Nova Scotia or coming for vacation or an extended stay will have to complete the Nova Scotia Safe Check-in and self-isolate based on vaccination status and testing.

Real Estate Update – Fall is fast approaching and the Real Estate Market does not seem to be slowing down! We are still seeing properties with multiple offers. This is by far the most intense market in my 19-year career – there has been a 20.2% increase in average sale price since last year. An experienced agent can help you in this market and if you are thinking of selling, now is still the time!
