How Will A Post-Corona Virus Recession Impact The Housing Market?

Perhaps Differently Than You Might Be Thinking...

 

Corona Virus/COVID-19 has turned all of our lives upside down. This global pandemic has changed our current daily lives in different and unexpected ways and we are all in this together -- no one is unaffected. During this time of uncertainty, please be assured that I’m committed to serving you and helping you navigate this challenging time and the days beyond. 

 

I know whether you are a homeowner with no plans to move right now or have been preparing to buy or sell a home, the current environment is likely causing stress for many of you.  During this time of uncertainty surrounding coronavirus (COVID-19), please remember that I and Coldwell Banker® are committed to serving you with the same level of dedication and care that you have come to know and expect. For over a century, “guiding our clients home” has been our purpose.

 

I've spoken with a number of my clients this week who were looking to find out more about where the housing market is headed, especially if we experience a post-COVID-19 recession. At this point in time we are watching the market day by day and have no definitive answers. BUT, there is considerable evidence showing that today's housing market is nothing like it was during the last recession. So if we do go into a recession, we should not assume things will play out the way they did in 2008. I’ve summarized this in the video below. 

 

 

 

 

 

Coldwell Banker® has withstood numerous adversities throughout our 114-year history. In fact, our company was born in crisis, having been founded following the 1906 San Francisco earthquake to bring honesty, integrity and service to those in need. Those values have been our core ever since.

 

If you have any questions and concerns I want you to feel free to reach out to me if I can do anything to alleviate your concerns about the housing market and the impact of this pandemic on your investment in your home.  We are all in this together and I look forward to "guiding you home."

Yes Nina, consumers have concerns about the Real Estate market. As of Sunday evening, New York State will not be allowing any Open Houses nor showings. Like you...We are staying POSITIVE!

Lawrence "Larry" & Sheila Agranoff. Cell: 631-805-4400 hi Sheila and Larry... I personally am not sure why anyone would hold an open house just now. I think it's taking unecessary risks. I am a great believer in the power of positive thinking.

I think that the market is going to boom after all of this virus stuff goes away, it really seems primed for that to happen.

Brian England hi Brian... I think the demand we were seeing for housing is just temporatily paused but will come back with the low interest rates... and we will still be seeing a shortage of inventory.

Hi Nina Hollander - This will be a very interesting year, to put it mildly. But this video is right on point.  We need to have these talking points ready to go because many will not understand that there is a huge difference from 2008 to our current market conditions.

Nina so far I still have people who are in fields of employment not impacted by the current layoffs who are still looking to purchase a home, or looking to and refinance their present home. 

While we have to be realistic about the current situation, we need to remain positive that we will be out of this soon.  Negativity does not accomplish anything, it only makes things worst.  I choose to look towards a positive outcome, and a part of making things better.

I am trying to look at this realistically but when the federal goverment is talking about $2 to $3 trillion to fix the problem that is bigger than 2009.

John Pusa thank you, John. No doubt the housing market will be affected... but we really don't know how and how much as yet... and we can't assume it will be like it was in 2008/2009.

Hi Nina,
I always enjoy the short and to the point videos that you share. I was particularly struck by the average percentage of income going toward mortgage payments now. I wasn't aware it was so much less. That's a good thing for sure.  Things are WAY different than they were in 2008.

Nina, it will be interesting to say the least.  Will some be able to buy houses, and what about those who lost jobs?   What will our economy look like in two months.  We shall see.

Hi Nina:

No doubt there is a great deal of concern these days about the future, for those who want to buy or sell, as well as those homeowners simply concerned about their investment. There is some very useful information here, presented in an easy to comprehend short video.

Enjoy your weekend at home!
