Blogging with Buddy June 1st, 2020

It’s hard to imagine that the Year To Date sales are still up 3% over 2019 when we take into consideration our Covid-19 lock down since mid-March!  There are strict rules (as there should be) to follow while showing/viewing homes during the pandemic in place to keep everyone safe but the market is hotter than we’ve seen in many years (at least 10) with several bidding wars going on.  Mama and I try to figure out why and we think it’s because with people shut in their homes for months they have come to realize life can be short and their current house is not exactly everything they want in a home.  Some want a larger yard, privacy, more bedrooms for close family to come visit or smaller homes now that they are empty nesters.  Some want waterfront, cottages or vacation homes as they don’t plan on travelling now but staying put and enjoying our beautiful province of New Brunswick.  Whatever the reason it’s now a seller’s market!

Nicholas and I went with Mama and Papa to assist in putting the sold sign on our 14 acre listing of land on Mellinger Cres.  We were so excited because the owner gave her permission for us to tag along and have a refreshing swim in the meandering brook.  What a time we had.  It started with a nice walk along a trail through the woods and as soon as I saw the brook I ran and jumped right in.  It was cold but refreshing.  Papa said, “There will be fish in this brook” and there is.  Nicholas stayed more away from the deep section running up and down, splashing on his way.  After our swim we went up and installed the sold sticker.  Here are some pics of our adventurer that day.  Congratulations to our seller and our buyer who plans to build a new house in this pretty section of woodland.

Thank you to all for the nice birthday wishes on May 24th on Facebook as I turned 8 years old.  I wasn’t crazy about wearing the Snoopy birthday hat but I enjoyed a yummy cheeseburger picnic with Nicholas and a nice swim.  What more could a big boy wish for on his birthday.  My friend, Oliver Mortimer, who lives out west, turned 9 on the 28th.  I wish that Oliver, as a Bernese mountain dog lived closer.  Us big boys couldn’t have thrown a heck of a joint party!

The weather was freezing last weekend so we didn’t get to the beach as planned but we’re hoping to go this weekend.  Surly now that it’s June it will start to warm up a bit.  Nicholas needs it warmer to start swimming.  I wouldn’t care if it were January I’d swim right in the Bay of Fundy anyway!  Talk soon.
