What a week this has been and it is only Tuesday.. We have seen many homes come up on the market this week. It seems that no one has told the Sellers the market is for Buyers only. Hurrah.. So at least when we take Buyers out they are looking at some new properties..
I want to focus on Colby Village in Dartmouth for this blog. I have 2 homes for sale out of the other 25 in this are which is under 300,000. there is 12 homes in this great area under 250,000. which would normally sell in the 270ish..
But never mind the homes, lets talk the area…Colby Village is in Cole Harbour home of Nathan MacKinnon, Sidney Crosby, just to name a few.. Also more importantly this is a family area.. where kids can go to school play at the parks, swim at the club and play tennis.. this is all within not 5 minutes of each other.
Lets not forget Cole Harbour Place where there is all kinds of recreation going on at all times , swimming, hockey, baseball, soccer,football, you name it Cole Harbour has it.. Did I mention grocery stores are about 5 minutes from Colby Village..
Lets just say it has it all.. Many a fine family live here and are very proud of the area.
Homes in the older section are about 40-45 years old. partially brick and siding.. Nice back and front yard..for the kids to play in or the animals to go out . Many of these homes have had upgrades, new windows , roofs, you know the big ticketed things that a Buyer does not want to get involved in.
These are the homes we are selling here. Oh they may not have the newer kitchens, or all the hardwood floors but the first time Buyer can move in unpack the boxes and start living right away.
In my 18 years selling Real Estate, I have come to believe that if you are starting out, go to a nice area buy the home that needs a little fixing(not the big stuff) live in it(3 yrs and up) and fix it as you go.. These people are the ones who will have a good return on their investment when they move, I see it all the time.
Travelling from this area is great, as you are about tops 7 minutes to Shearwater, Eastern Passage and about the 20-25 minutes to downtown Halifax.. Great for getting in and off the highway..
