Running Out of Toilet Paper and Loosing my Mind

Real Estate Agent with YourStories Realty Group MA# 9517963

The Queen Shakes handsRunning Out of Toilet Paper and Loosing my Mind is a perfect description of this historic day. CoronaVirus, Covid-19 is on the upswing, the Fed just cut it's rate to zero and there are actually agents out there who don't know the relationship with the Fed Rate and the Interest Rates banks charge for mortgage loans.  The running out of toilet paper is this moments true craziness. For some reason people are hoarding toilet paper and the thoughts that come to mind for why are just too horrifying to consider without disinfectant.

There are still lots of buyers who are looking for homes and not near enough homes on the market to satisfy the need. On the other side of that is price, with scarcity comes increased prices, but with the threat of life altering pandemic the desire to get out makes the price negotiable.

With Stock markets in jittery free fall and the bond market being artificially propped up with federal dollars it just may be the time to put your money into real estate. While we can not predict what will happen we can look to past performance (which is not a prediction of future performance) I am just saying that it might be a very good

time to buy good properties and get a great interest rate. It is possible the stock market will rebound after the global pandemic crisis runs it's course. Buying real estate, choosing a longer range investment strategy is worth considering.

There has never been a time in history when working with a professional who understands the market and the process is more important for the best bottom line in real estate. Trusting to a person without experience and inside knowledge is sure to bring a diminished return. Running Out of Toilet Paper and Loosing my Mind

You're not alone! The toilet paper shortage has me totally puzzled.

And I agree - if buyers are still in a position to buy then it might be best to move forward and take advantage of the chaos.

Hi Larry - I have not found one person who knows why all the toilet paper is gone.  Crazy!

I found some toilet paper at my grocery run early yesteray morning...didn't notice until I got home that it's 1-ply. Apparently what was my norm, 2-ply, is now a luxury.

Margaret Goss it is a crazy world right now. Stay sane and be a voice of reason is what I am saying to people. Thanks for your comments.

Grant Schneider I would be afraid to find that person. I think in a crowd you just look for the tinfoild hats, right?

@Krystin Mitchell, CPA CFE There is a big run for bidet's here in the Boston Area.  Since no one is supposed to be out I wonder why does it matter. I do know there is personal hygene involved and more than a tad of craziness. Thanks for your comment

The market goes up and it goes down but there will never be any more land in the cities - good time to get a new home to shelter in place!
