Covid 19 and the Real Estate Market

Sold Home

Over the past few months, with life being somewhat put on hold or at least changed from the “normal” pace we have come to know, I believe we have all realized the value of our home. A safe and secure place for our families to live, learn and socialize together. It is no surprise the rate of homeownership increased to 65.3% for the first quarter of 2020. The highest it has been in eight years. 

What does this mean for you? If you are considering selling your home, the numbers show buyers are still buying and inventory is needed. One of my most recent listings not only received multiple offers but was under contract within six days of hitting the market. Buyers are looking to take advantage of current interest rates. 

If the thought of buying has crossed your mind and you are not quite sure if you qualify or know where to begin, please contact me. I work with a great team and together we can make a plan that will get you closer to achieving your dream. I look forward to hearing from you.
