Real Estate News – Are you ready for the spring market! We are seeing a few more listings but it seems some homes are staying on the market a little longer. If you are a buyer, it’s definitely not as frantic as it was in the past few years. There are fewer competing offers and more homes to see and time to decide. We are still down in listings and we need more inventory especially for the spring market. If you have any questions, I would be happy to help.

If you have any info you would like included in the March newsletter,
please call Rosie at 902-209-7073 or email
