The market remains strong across New Brunswick as buyers vie for a shortage of listings in an extremely tight market.  The tides have certainly turned as sellers suffered for a decade with a soft market which is now the strongest sellersmarket in the history of the province.  Mama and Charlie have buyers ready to purchase who are looking for just the right property up to $1.5 Million.  If you know of anyone thinking of selling give us a call as we’re happy to help.  Remember if your family includes four-legged friends you can always reach me directly at Buddy@KatherineBacon.com for the inside scoop!

We had a wonderful day yesterday with a family outing to visit our dear friend Gail in Sussex.  Gail and I have been emailing each other for some time now but we really wanted to meet in person.  She met Mama years ago but not me.  I was sooooo excited when Mama announced that we were all jumping in the truck and I was finally going to head to Gail’s house.  It was a beautiful blue sky day with dry pavement, just perfect for the trip.  Papa and Nicholas came along as well (I never get to go anywhere without Nicholas, truth be told) and they were excited about the visit too.  We pulled up in the driveway and I couldn’t wait to jump out of the truck and ran straight for the door.  I knew Gail loves Newfoundland dogs as she had a big one growing up.  She was right there at the door waiting for me and it was quite the reunion!  She rubbed my ears, gave me big hugs and told me how handsome I am and how happy she was to finally meet me.  I can tell you the feeling was mutual!  Wildman Nicholas gave her a big kiss and then took off around the house checking everything out (his manners aren’t as good as mine) and in two seconds flat his nose figured out that Gail has a cat who was hiding.  The search was on!  It didn’t take long for him to discover Rissie, a beautiful, huge Maine Coon cat was safely hidden in one of the bedrooms.  That kept Nicholas entertained while I got to have a nice visit with Gail.  I snuggled right in close and sat on her feet  which she said felt nice and cosy.  She surprised us each with new toy.  Gail was so good to us Nicholas and I each got a squeaky squirrel, mine is grey and Nicholas’ is brown along with a box of large size Milk Bone dog biscuits, our favourite!!!  Eventually we said our good byes and loaded into the car for the trip home promising to return for another nice visit.

Happy Valentine’s Day!  That’s a big day coming up for Mama and Papa this year as they celebrate their 30th wedding anniversary!  Mama asks where did the time go?  Valentine’s Day was on Friday in 1992 and they got married by candlelight that night at the original Our Lady Of Perpetual Help Church in Rothesay, surrounded by family and friends.  A full course dinner and reception followed at nearby Shadow Lawn where they stayed overnight and then headed out in the morning for their honeymoon.  Happy looking couple I say.  Mama always says when she sees this picture that Papa looks like the cat that caught the mouse!  Thirty years of wonderful memories!

We all know how rare one level ranch style homes are in Southern New Brunswick and we’ve got not one but two new to the market right now! 41 Westmount Drive in Millidgeville has 3000 sq’ on the main level with a full basement bringing the total square footage to 4500 plus a huge 32 x 32 unfinished storage room.  The house is brick and was well-built by Glenhar Construction with a separate basement entrance and zoning for a professional home office.  It features main floor living, spacious rooms, fireplace, 3 ductless heat pumps, 3-car attached garage, view of the Kennebecasis River front and back and a fenced tennis court.  Nicholas and I think that tennis court is the perfect yard for furry friends to enjoy their outdoor time year round.  Mama says it’s also good for children and teens in the winter when it can be flooded for the perfect skating or hockey rink?  I wouldn’t have thought of that but I can just picture speedy little Nichols chasing a puck around the ice and driving the kids crazy!  MLS#NB068491    Offered at $695,000.

Our second ranch style is at 11 Margaret Street in Nauwigewauk, located between Quispamsis and Hampton, just 10 minutes from each.  It features 3005 sq’ on one level, 10′ ceilings and heated floors throughout, oh so cosy (including the oversized 2-car garage), fireplace, spacious rooms, ductless heat pump for A/C in summer, huge covered deck 12 x 50, 1 acre of flat land, and panoramic view of Darlings Lake & distant mountains.  What Nicholas love best about this property is that half of it is fenced and the in-ground salt water pool with built-in staircase for ease of access!  I’m not much of a diver so I can see myself moseying down the steps (several times a day if I got my way) for a nice refreshing swim!  Now Nicholas, he’d just dive in!!!  In the picture below our friend Spirit shows off her excellent swimming skills!  She’s the first dog I’ve met that swims as good as me but she’s also an excellent diver too!  Now that’s my kind of girl!  MLS#NB067959 Offered at $695,000

Spirit is in the pool!

The weather today is gorgeous making it easier for buyers to get out and about viewing the properties.  I know I’m loving it!  Let’s hope it stays like this for a while.  As I like to say “Get out there”!  Watch for me in my new black truck (traded in the red one), matches my shiny black fur, so if you see me around the parking lots please come over to say hello.

Nicholas in the new truck and that’s me in the background.
