We had lunch this week with a few representatives from CMHC (Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation) and they gave us a quick update on what they see happening across the HRM.  Perhaps most notably, the average price of a Halifax Peninsula home has increased this year by a substantial 10.5%.  This is partly due to a low amount of inventory but also because many of these homes have undergone significant renovations.  Sales are also up by 6.4% creating a hot spot in our market.

Looking at the greater central metropolitan area, sales are up by 7.8% and the average sale price has also increased by 2.7%.  The average time to sell a home dropped by 18% to 71 days on the market.
