Coronavirus and Real Estate

Happy Monday Everyone! 

I’ve had a lot of friends and customers call and ask “how is the coronavirus affecting real estate” ? Well we’re still selling homes, and I had a couple of listings go under contract last week within 24 hours of hitting the market! I’m sure the next few weeks will be interesting, but right now is still a great time to buy or sell real estate! Interest rates are at a low which is great for buyers! Inventory is extremely low which is great for sellers! Check out this video that Florida Realtors published regarding the coronavirus and real estate!
