Meet Adam Scott

He’s happily married and a proud father of two.  Originally from Ontario, Adam always wanted to be somewhere with a big city feel but, a small town vibe.  Halifax delivers and he’s thrilled to call it home.  Adam has come to love the beautiful and dynamic landscape of the Nova Scotian Shore and in particular, Hubbards, where his wife’s family has roots that go back to the 1940’s.

770 Young Ave

The pomp and circumstance of Young Avenue and a house to live up to that reputation.   I won't call it cheap for Young Avenue, but it is certainly more attainable than some of the newer homes on the street, especially considering the sprawling 27,000 square foot lot.  Stately curb appeal with covered verandas welcome you as you enter through a gorgeous front door.  A juxtaposition of old world character and updated conveniences.  Period stained glass windows, original fireplaces and tons of space to create whatever you desire.

5642 Morris Street

If you are looking for a Heritage home with immense character and charm, look no further.  Situated in historic Schmidtville, this home oozes with period features and unique qualities.  Five functional fireplaces, original plaster and trim, solid wood doors from 1859 and Gurney Quartet cast iron radiators.  All the electrical components have been updated and the home offers a secondary suite off Wright avenue with great Airbnb potential.  A very special house for a special buyer.

3147 Robie Street

A North End house with lots of potential, but on a very busy road.   An aggressive list price means the negative of the road will likely be overlooked and I anticipate it will sell quickly.  Looking for an entry level home for an affordable price?  Look no further. 

Pros:  Great price, investment potential.  
Cons: Busy Road. 

3371 St. Andrews Street

If the last location was enough to turn you off, here's a plan B.  This home could do with a little updating and it might not be big enough for some, but there is a lot of value offered for the price. …

For many, buying a home can be an incredibly intimidating prospect.  Perhaps it’s the fear of not knowing what to do or where to start.  Perhaps it’s the commitment that comes with owning your own home versus the care free nature of renting.  Maybe it’s the down payment or the other upfront costs associated with a purchase.  If you focus on these things without giving equal attention to the upsides, you’ll be paralyzed by fear and likely never make a decision.  Renting is easy and because it’s easy, you don’t get anything in return except a roof over your head.  You cover all the costs associated with someone else’s asset.  You get a roof, while the seller gets the benefit of a long term investment, funded by you.

2086 Brunswick Street

A unique stacked townhouse on the upper level.  If you don't quite like the feeling of apartment style condos, this is a fantastic alternative.  The lower level townhouses have a main level and a basement which hold the bedrooms.  This is a more desirable layout as it's located in the upper section, meaning you have a conventional layout with bedrooms upstairs. Condo fees are reasonable and it has it's own parking as well. 

Pros:  Neat as a pin, move in ready. 
Cons: Galley kitchen won't suit everyone.
