The month of April was a very busy month in the Halifax real estate market. With 573 sales it was one of the strongest April months on record. Both average price and sales increased over April 2011.. We continue to see a sellers market. If a property is priced right it is not uncommon to see multiple offer situations.
Investment properties in HRM saw average price decreased by 10.7% compared to April 2011. Number of sales did not change. We are starting to see some movement in this market segment. The inventory is still quite low for investment properties and like single family homes and condos we are also experiencing a sellers market.
