Dear friends and family,
The Leonard Real Estate Group would like to take a moment to address some of your concerns regarding the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the real estate market.While some claim that the COVID-19 pandemic will cause a nationwide housing crisis similar to that following the 2008 Recession, experts point out distinctions between the financial conditions of 2008 and 2020 which could mean a better outlook for residential real estate.
It is widely reported that 2008 Recession was caused by the failures of the financial institutions. Specifically, banks were approving a high volume of mortgages for unqualified buyers. Eventually, when the buyers could not pay back the loans, the banks became cash-poor due to the lack of payments. Banks began to foreclose and sell homes quickly, and often as cheaply as possible, to raise money. This led to a sharp decline in home value and many changes to how lending is done today.Today, notwithstanding the unprecedented closure of commercial businesses due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the financial conditions that led to the 2008 Recession are not reported to exist today. Though no one can predict the future, data from the MLS shows that the residential housing inventory remains very tight. Mortgage interest rates remain very low and banks are approving mortgages to qualified buyers. Low mortgage interest rates should keep interested buyers in the market even though the current crisis may delay some processes.Experts do expect a short-term fluctuation in transactions and possibly home values, but those with a long-term view may take solace. Once this chapter in our lives is resolved, analysts expect the real estate market to recover more quickly than it did following the 2008 Recession and possibly pick up right where it left off.
During this pandemic please keep your family safe and healthy.
