April – First Full Month of COVID Policies in Place

The numbers for April are down as expected.

The reaction to the current situation is weighing heavily on market conditions.  But, as I write this in mid-May, we are already seeing improvement!

The biggest message I want to get across to everyone is the market reaction is very segmented and specific.  Meaning, the price range, location, and type of home will have a huge impact on how the current situation will impact your specific market.
