This has been an extraordinarily strange year for the real estate market. At the beginning of this year, our Spring market showed surprising early strength. Usually, we see buyers start looking in early February and sellers start listing about then as well. This Spring, we were seeing more activity than usual.
Then Covid hit. For about a month or two, as people were trying to figure out what they needed to do, activity dropped a bit. Then despite everything it roared back again. Our brokerage is having a record breaking year in the midst of a pandemic!
All this activity has pushed the market forward as well. Usually, around this time of year, we see activity drop off due mostly to the Holidays. Not this year. We are still seeing high demand from buyers. I suspect this may carry through to the Spring.
So, if you are looking to buy and sell, and thought about waiting for next year, perhaps you should call your favorite real estate professional and discuss your local market. You might want to go ahead and dive in now.
