Want a cheaply priced house? Then at $293,450 this month, Sweets Corner, Nova Scotia is probably not for you price wise.

If you’re looking for a large choice of properties on sale when you’re adding to your real estate investment portfolio, then Sweets Corner has not many at all compared to the rest of the province

As one of Nova Scotia’s many potential real estate investment neighbourhoods, Sweets Corner needs to be carefully researched before investing in – and remember to check especially the locations within an area before spending - the old estate agent’s mantra of location, location, location has never lost its importance.

Because the amount of real estate listed for sale has stayed the same it looks like housing market forces in neighbourhood are likely to not necessarily affect house prices.

Nova Scotia has hundreds of possible neighbourhoods for you to invest in and there is lots of data to sift through to help you narrow your search down.

Over the last three months in Sweets Corner, housing stock available seems to be staying constant – this could mean that homes values might not be hugely affected by supply constraints.
