But first things first.
How is the Market Doing?
Just as in previous months, we can confirm that August 2020 has been yet another active month! Despite the fact that sales are down from the previous month (and even more if compared with the previous year), home values remain very strong and continue to rise! Now the big question: will this trend continue as we’re headed into Fall, which is traditionally a more slow time of the year for real estate (leading into the Holidays when real estate activity comes to an almost standstill year after year)? Or will the demand remain strong thanks to the incredibly (!) low mortgage rates? Well, 2020 is a year like no other, so we are excited to see what happens in this real estate thriller…
To all you Buyers: hang in there!! We believe interest rates will remain low for a little while longer so it’s all about being prepared and ready when that dream home pops up! Yes, it’s not nice to be up against other buyers in a multiple offer situation, but right now it’s worth it to go all in. Securing a fixed interest rate as low as 2.75% on a 30 year mortgage for example will allow you to buy a lot more home than whatever you could have gotten in previous years.
A note to prospective Sellers: give those buyers the homes!! If you have been pondering about selling your home, we do believe that now would be an excellent time to do so. If you’re curious what your home could sell for in today’s market, we will gladly provide you with a free home value estimate so you can make an informed decision.

That means August 2020 saw a 23% drop in home sales (38 homes less) compared to the previous year. However, we still see home values going strong, and homes that enter the market selling quickly due to the above mentioned still very low inventory and historically low interest rates.
