If you’re planning on purchasing residential property in Nova Scotia, it's important to be aware that there is a new Deed Transfer Tax you’re required to pay if you’re not a resident of the province, called the Non-Resident Deed Transfer Tax.

If you move to Nova Scotia within six months, and provide proof that you’ve relocated within that six month time frame though, you don’t have to pay this tax! This exemption is granted on an individual basis. This means that if you were to move to Nova Scotia within the 6…

As we move into the Fall season, not only are the temperatures and the leaves changing but we are seeing a shift in the real estate market in Halifax. 

 


The first part of 2021 was a “whirlwind” of activity including properties selling quickly, multiple offers and sale prices over the listed price. And yes, lots of buyers from around the country and beyond. 

In the past month for buyers, we have started to see things improve in terms of fewer competitive offers and less inflation of pricing on offers. Inventory continues to be a challenge in some areas but as long as buyers are patient and have well-defined expectations in terms of what they want or need they will be successful in their search for the perfect home. Working with a…

While certainly a popular sentiment, it's not entirely accurate. There are little fires here and little fires there, and it's true that houses in some areas are selling faster than others and some types of houses generate multiple offers.

In order to understand the market we are currently in here in Halifax, you need to understand what is driving the multiple offers, low inventory, etc.

A metric that REALTORS® use is the "Sales to List Price Ratio", or in others words... What is the percentage of price over the list price that homes are selling for?... On average!

Currently it is at 103.99%* which means that if a house was listed at $100,000 it would, on average, sell for $103,990. If it was listed at $300,000 it would, on average, sell for…

Here, we've listed a few realistic tips, tricks, and hacks to get you started on your saving journey.

Congratulations! You've made the decision to take the plunge into homeownership! This is a very exciting time in your life -- but are you really ready?

New Homeowners with keys

Before you start making wish-lists, planning paint colours, or even book viewings, you need to be pre-approved!

Maybe you've tried the mortgage calculator and based on what you currently pay in rent, it seems like you'll be able to afford a pretty awesome house. While the calculator is a great tool to determine the approximate monthly payments for a specific home price, there's so much more involved in financing a home, as well as a lot of out-of-pocket costs that you might not be expecting. 

Getting pre-approved for a mortgage is probably the most important step in your home-buying journey.
