There are currently over 50 Oceanfront homes on the Market in Halifax and Halifax/South through to Hubbards and the Aspotogan Peninsula. Ranging in the $300,000 to Multiple Millions Range.
The St. Margaret's Bay area -which is within the 30 min range to Halifax seems to be the most popular amongst buyers. The prices vary wildly from the lower 400's to many Millions of dollars depending on the quality of the house and the land on which it sits. Various quality's of water frontage exist as well - Ranging from rocky exposed outcroppings to quite protective coves. The privacy of the setting then lends it hand in the equation. Often the best homes have high traffic noise to contend with, and awesome anchorages in quite coves have homes that are very close to neighbors.
Well - This season has been slower off the mark so far and the inventories have climbed up pretty fast. Who will sell first? I'll keep you posted on my ongoing "Ocean Blog."
