November has proven to be a hot market with local sales hitting a 13-year high!!! It was the best month of November for sales since 2005 and the second-best ever! The average price of homes sold in November 2018 was $197,463, jumping 21.9% from November 2017. The number of new listings was down 35.5% making this the lowest number of new listings to hit the market in the month of November since 2004 proving that winter is an excellent time of year to be on the market as Mama always says. Her and Charlie were out there selling away to mark a portion of these statistics with their sales of 105 Cedarwood Drive, 90 Second Street plus three others from MLS! Quite a November!
Jane and Nick Rocco are ecstatic about the sale of their home at 105 Cedarwood Drive in Millidgeville listed at $675,000. Their impeccable ranch home with panoramic water view will go to new buyers from Ontario. Congratulation Jane and Nick and thank you for being such a pleasure for Mama and Charlie to work with. Mama was also happy to help you with your purchase of a new home in the valley closer to your precious grandchildren!
Nicholas and I are busy getting ready for Christmas, putting up our tree and hopefully (paws crossed) a visit from Santa Paws!!! I’ve been good all year for the most part but I worry about the little fella. He so mischievous and for weeks has been snooping into every bag Mama brings into the house (even sneaked in the Christmas room a few times). There he came across a couple of gifts for our new neighbours, Darcy & Bennett, and came flying out with such gifts in tow! He says one for him and one for me. Let me tell you I was tempted and just as I was about to get up and take a closer look Mama came flying around the corner freak’n out because he’d found the neighbour’s gifts. Well I’m sure glad I was a bit slow on the draw that day!!! Mama says the elves are hiding around the house and reporting what they see to Santa Paws. If this is the case, then Nicholas is in trouble. I can’t figure it out, we’ve been looking and looking for these nosy elves but haven’t come across hide nor hair of them yet! All I know is when I’m a good boy Santa Paws leaves me some nice toys and treats Christmas Eve, my two favourite things!
I’m sure you’re busy at home too, decking the halls making sure everything is shinny and bright! Mama will start Christmas baking this week between showings and you can bet your bottom dollar that Big Buddy Bacon won’t be too far from the kitchen!!! Papa won’t either! Our Auntie Blue has been baking for weeks and she surprised Mama with a beautiful Christmas table cloth for our kitchen yesterday. We just love it! Happy shopping and we’ll see you soon.
