Good morning! Since today is closing day for two of our sellers and one of our buyers, I thought I’d take a minute to discuss the pre-closing inspection.


Huh? What’s a pre-closing inspection? (And didn’t you already have one done as part of the buyer’s conditions?)

But since you’re on our real estate website and we are both licensed REALTORs® in Nova Scotia, I’m sure you won’t be shocked to learn that the focus here will be real estate. Yep – straight-shooting the local housing market conditions, offering up advice and...
