Today, many people are asking themselves if they should buy or sell a home in 2020. Some have shifted their plans or put them on hold over the past couple of months, and understandably so. Everyone seems to be wondering if the market is going to change and when theeconomywill turn around. If you’re trying to figure out what’s going to happen and how to play your cards this year, you’re not alone.
This spring in the2020 NAR Flash Survey: Economic Pulse, theNational Association of Realtors(NAR) has been tracking the behavior changes of homebuyers and sellers. In a reaction to their most recent survey, Lawrence Yun,Chief Economistat NAR, noted the beginnings of a turn in the market:
“After a pause, home sellers are gearing up to list their properties with the reopening of the economy…Plenty of buyers also appear ready to take advantage of record-low mortgage rates and the stability that comes with these locked-in monthly payments into future years.”
The survey indicates that sellers are poised to list their homes on the market when the restrictions have been lifted. It also indicated that buyers preferences have been impacted. Buyers have shifted their preferences from urban settings to the suburbs. Buyers also are more focused on home offices, bigger yards, and more square footage. If you are considering selling your home please give me a call. There is likely a buyer match just waiting for more inventory.

"Maria Kitchens was a hard working and very thorough agent. She definitely fought to get us the best deal and made sure she read over EVERY detail of the contract to make sure that everything was perfect for us. She also went over the house several times to make sure it was cleaned and that the water pressure issue was taken care of. This is the third house we bought and she definitely was our hardest working agent. We felt like she genuinely cared about our family and we felt comfortable enough to ask her for advice on other issues not even pertaining to the purchase of our home. She was definitely the kind of person you want to meet first when moving into a new area. She is the epitome of "southern hospitality" :) "
