Nova Scotia Real Estate in 2007

by : Leaftech

Nova Scotia has been experiencing a steady upswing in both real estate sales and development. The province has gone through rigorous change in the way of government and employment opportunities. With a potential bid for the Common Wealth Games, Halifax is on the tips of people's tongues around the world. After much deliberation and business dealings, Nova Scotia's Natural Gas pipelines and corresponding development has begun.

Since the early nineties young graduates and laborers have been leaving the province in search of more lucrative employment opportunities. Today, Nova Scotia's real estate and commercial development industries are experiencing a shortage in both skilled and non skilled workers. News of this shortage has reached many of those who left for the western parts of Canada years ago. Young families are relocating and in some cases bringing their businesses with them. For people 20 to 50 Nova Scotia is an ideal place to lay down roots.

Halifax, Bedford and Dartmouth are expanding into more rural areas with the twining of highways from Halifax to the south shore and into the Annapolis Valley through to the southern most tip of Nova Scotia. Real estate in communities like Windsor, Falmouth, Sackville and Dartmouth are experience substantially swift growth. Real Estate prices are middle of the road to high for many local Nova Scotia's looking to buy. But from both a National and International perspective Nova Scotia has some of the most reasonable real estate prices. Waterfront lots on pristine salmon rivers, rustic coastal vistas, rolling valley properties and Bay of Fundy real estate are all still options for today's Nova Scotia real estate buyers.

Another considerable draw to the province is our changing weather patterns. Atlantic Canada used to be synonymous with harsh winters, overly wet Springs, a fairly short summer and a colorful fall. In the last 3 years, as weather around the world shifts, Nova Scotia is getting some of the best weather it's seen in decades. Nova Scotia's winter now begins in January versus a typical snow fall in November. April brings warm sunny skies ideal for early spring landscaping and real estate development. Summers are hot and last well into September. Our fall season is perhaps still the nicest time of year with warmer temperatures than in the past, lasting well into November.
