COVID-19 and the Real Estate Market

COVID-19 and the Real Estate Market

The coronavirus pandemic has affected how we live our daily lives, including the way we buy and sell real estate. With shelter in place orders affecting more than 4 billion people around the world, there may not be another time in human history when people have depended on their homes more completely than they do now. As we shelter in place, we cannot help but think about all of you, hoping that you have the space you need, ample food and supplies; and of course, toilet paper! 😂

To help our clients navigate these uncharted waters, Dale did the short video above discussing COVID’s effect on national and local markets, trends in the industry and adaptations for conducting business in this climate.

Online Home Searches Surge

Google searches in the U.S. for “Should I buy a house” doubled in March from the previous month, according to Meyers Research. Low interest rates coupled with higher work from home rates could mean more people are starting new home searches online. As always, we welcome any questions and would love to hear from you. Please reach out to us! 415.845.5614.
