He told you so.
Nova Scotia’s real estate market was abuzz with speculation after news of a $25 billion shipbuilding contract was announced in late 2011. Brad Compton of Invis, however, warned that brokers and property sellers alike shouldn’t count their real estate boom before it hatches – something echoed in data now pointing to a 9 per cent drop.

    Man, you know what Nova Scotia needs? A community of online remote workers. Forget physical industries like ship building to bolster an economy, what about if the province put together a marketing play that focused on developing a community of individuals who work from home in an online capacity? That would mean income for the province utilizing current infrastructure with little to no capital output.

    I mean, have you been to Nova Scotia? I have, it is absolutely breathtaking.

    Pie in the sky I know, but have you seen how far a dollar stretches in the Annapolis Valley? Have you tried the scallops in Digby? Seriously, that is the way to spend the rest of your life!

    I agree with the Scotsman. I have always thought that Halifax with 3-4 universities and an excellent community college, has a niche of under-employed workers. They should be pushing hard for blue skies legislation in financial services and securities. All you need is smart people and the Internet.

    You two are dead on! Paid less for a larger home than I sold my small home for in Toronto, last year, with 1/3 property tax cost. This place is our best kept secret...shhhh...

    @kiltedbroker An online community for remote workers is in the works. I moved here from another part of Canada & there is much opportunity in both Real Estate and YES the ability for remote workers. It's building!
