Post Covid-19 Pandemic - Home Buying Era

Homebuying and Homebuyer Criteria Post Covid-19 Pandemic
When deciding to buy a home, has the fundamental homebuyer criteria changed?
 
Since the coronavirus pandemic, the re-opening of nonessential businesses and interest rates remaining low,  anyone who had a goal of buying in 2021, their criteria list would probably look a little different.  Why? Location, Space, Timing/Decision.. 
Location has always been a huge factor in buying a home. Is the home in a good neighborhood?  Is it in a good school district? Is there public transportation nearby? How far is my commute to work? You can change the house, but you can’t change the location. That is why the location has always been the biggest criteria to not compromise on.  However, regarding the location and commute, that may not be a factor anymore.  For people who want to, and can continue to, work from home as the pandemic eases, their commute is just steps from the kitchen, or maybe their ; ...

Should You Buy a Home if a Recession Hits?

Should You Buy a Home if a Recession Hits?

Between the coronavirus pandemic, the shutdown of nonessential businesses and a plummeting stock market, buyers and sellers wonder: Are we headed for a recession?  Anyone who had a goal of buying in 2020 would probably like to know if now is a good time to buy before committing to a major, long-term purchase. Similarly, anyone planning to sell their home in 2020 would like to know; should they sell now or weather the storm.  Then the question is, if they wait, will their home value be affected?
To set the stage for the below information, it is important to note that a Recession is not necessarily a positive for any industry.

Our team can get a listing live on the market within a few days from staging, to professional photos, and getting the listing live on the market.  However, depending on the condition of the home, it can take a few weeks for the seller to fix those items and prep the home for showings.  
Over the years, we ask sellers if they would consider listing their home in January, right after the first of the year.  Their reaction is always, “who sem ...
