The market still hasn’t slowed down, with many buyers out there and very low inventory in HRM.  This is by far the most intense market I have seen in my 18-year career – there has been a 10% increase in average sale price just in the past year. Our spring market is now our summer and fall market, with this September being the busiest I’ve ever experienced. If you are thinking of selling, this is a great time! If you are thinking of buying, an experienced agent can help you through the process. We are still following the rules laid out for us by wearing masks, using hand sanitizer and filling out Covid 19 disclosure forms.
