The Halifax Real Estate Marketplace

The Halifax real estate market includes all of Halifax Regional Municipality. The city is broken down into MLS area codes that are listed below.

As of the third quarter of 2018, The HRM real estate market is balanced for the first time in years, moving away from a lengthy buyer’s market. Click here for the 2018 Q3 HRM Market Report.
  Property values tend to rise moderately in Halifax, and at a steady pace. An average year would see prices rise between 2% and 5%. The second quarter in HRM saw an increase of 4% over last year’s second quarter.

So what can you expect if you purchase a home in Halifax? You can expect a steady marketplace with modest price increases and not the huge fluctuations that are seen in some of the larger cities in Canada. A solid, safe investment.
