The real estate market has certainly slowed since Covid-19 became our daily reality, but it hasn’t died. People are still selling and buying homes and the activity in the first half of May was much better than it was in the first half of April. The pending sales count (shown in brackets) is an indication of that increased activity and points to an even better second half of the month.
The industry has implemented protocols to protect the health of our Associates and our clients and they are working well. We will continue to work cooperatively to ensure that safety is our first concern so that our clients can take advantage of very attractive prices, ample inventories and low interest rates. It’s a great time to buy!
