David Uloth, new president of the Nova Scotia Association of Realtors.
David Uloth, a realtor from Colchester County, has begun his term as 2014-15 President of the Nova Scotia Association of Realtors, which serves 1,722 members across the province.
“I’m delighted to serve an organization that provides REALTORS® with the tools to better serve the public in real estate transactions,” Uloth says. “Not only does NSAR strive to strengthen the image and professionalism of its members through continuing professional education and development, it’s also committed to improving the quality of life for Nova Scotians by working with all levels of government.”
Uloth has been an active volunteer for the association, working on the executive committee for three years and serving as a board member for three years previous to that. With nearly 20 years of industry experience, Uloth has chaired NSAR’s professional standards, conduct review and finance committees.
During his term as president, Uloth will oversee the association during an awareness campaign for buyers and sellers produced by National Public Relations.
“This educational marketing campaign highlights the expertise and services that REALTORS® offer in Nova Scotia. It centres on high professional standards, life-long learning and a strict code of ethics that we, as REALTORS®, abide by while helping buyers and sellers learn about their options, share our knowledge and advance their homeownership goals.”
Other members of NSAR’s executive committee include immediate Past-President Gary Mailman (South Shore Region); President-Elect Gordon Burns (Halifax-Dartmouth Region); and Vice President, Roger Sanford (Northern Nova Scotia). The executive committee works with the rest of the board of directors, including eight regional directors and a director specializing in commercial real estate, to represent realtors and improve organized real estate throughout Nova Scotia.
Home Sales Increase In March
Uloth comes in on a high note, as most regions in Nova Scotia experienced an increase in sales for the month of March. The most recent data from NSAR and the Annapolis Valley Real Estate Board’s Multiple Listing Service® show the number of sales jumped 7.6 per cent provincially compared to March 2013.
The year-to-date figures show that overall sales are still catching up to sales totals set last year. Sales for January to March 2014 are down just over six per cent provincially, while listings only increased slightly by less than one per cent. The average sale price in most regions has edged down by five per cent putting the provincial sale price at $207,552. While most regions are reporting a decrease in the year-to-date average sale price, these averages are below the provincial figures in all regions, with the exception of Halifax-Dartmouth where the average price dropped 2.9 per cent to $266,070.
