The real estate market in New Brunswick continues to demand the highest prices in history with a few more listings hitting the market but certainly no abundance.  It’s a seller’s market that’s for sure for the first time in many decades.  It’s a welcome experience for sellers here who are not used to bidding wars and higher prices but it also comes with the reality that when you move you’re going to be paying more as well and probably in a competive situation.  It’s all fine and dandy if you staying in New Brunswick as you’ll get more than ever for your property even though you’ll pay more than ever.  It all comes out as a wash!  Many home owners are happy to stay put which is creating a shortage of available listings on the market.  When will the bubble burst???  Who knows, that’s what keeps it interesting.  Many say the market can’t continue to support these inflated prices but… they said that about Vancouver twenty years ago and they haven’t slowed down yet.  Some think when we get a handle on the pandemic and everyone is vaccinated things will calm down.  No one know for sure what’s around the next corner as we experience this unexpected soar in our local market!  I can tell you that all the Realtors are earning their keep and Mama and Charlie are going right out straight!

I can hardly stand the excitment!!!  Victoria Day Weekend plus Big Buddy Bacon’s 9th Birthday is on Monday the 24th!  I’m so looking forward to my annual cheeze burger picnic with Nicholas and a few furry friends.  Papa fires up the barbeque and Mama dishes it out.  We’ll wear our Snoopy Birthday hats (Nicholas hates wearing his).  Mama says we look super cute.  I say what to heck, if wearing the hat gets me a cheeze burger, then I’m in! Everyone say I’m looking great for my age including the most important person, my vet!  I’m loving the spring weather, getting out for some nice refreshing swims and nature walks with my family.  Hope you have a great Victoria Day weekend.  If you see my cruises through town in my red SUV with my head hanging out the window, give me a little birthday toot on the horn!

Our new listing at 196 Model Farm Road, Quispamsis, MLS#NB057415 is a good example.  Priced at $975,000 and offered with approximately six acres, it hit the MLS Wednesday May 5th, first viewing Thursday the 6th and accepted offer by Friday the 7th going over asking with additional acreage.  The overseas buyer is exciting to own acreage in the valley on such a scenic property with such extensive privacy.  Several potential buyers have been disapointed to inquire on the property only to learn that it already has an accepted offer.  Personally I named the place “Doggy Heaven” as it was perfect for Nichola and I with a pond to swim in (or the pool), acres of nature trails, a nice big one level house with a fireplace and builtin dog bath.  What more could a big dog ask for?   The baby ducks had their very first swim this week, too cute for words!

Baby ducks very first swim, this week!

The stunning star magnolia is in bloom.

Nicholas and I had our very first ocean swim of the year at New River Beach last Saturday and what a treat it was.  Blue sky, warm day but oh that water is cool!!!  I jumped right in and was shocked that the little guy was right behind me.  He usually waiting until close to July before he tackles the cold water of the Bay of Fundy!  He didn’t stay in long but he had a good refreshing swim before taking off on a run down the beach chasing sea gulls.  I wonder if he really thinks he’ll ever catch one???  I enjoy sitting back and watching him.  It’s as good as a three-ring circus!

Hope you have a relaxing Victoria Day Weekend.  Paws crossed and hoping for nice sunny weather and a few good barbeques with Papa at the helm!

Your pal,
