We wanted to let you know what we are seeing with home sales and COVID-19. It's very interesting to see that homes are flooding the market, many are anticipating a decline in the housing market and are trying to list now. We do not think we will see a huge decline in the housing market as we did in 2008 but I do anticipate a market SHIFT. Shifting from a seller's market to an even or buyers market. All that means is the demand for sellers will decrease because the market has many homes and not as many buyers, which will start to force the values down.
- We have seen a spike with a level in sales to list %. Meaning homes are selling for higher than the listed price.
- We have seen a spike in medium sales price & sold price syncing up this past month.
- We have seen a HUGE decrease in the number of days on the market from 35 in January and 27 in February to just 13 days on market now.
- This is showing a decrease in the actual number of closings and total sold volume, but that is to be expected.
