OCTOBER 2, 2020

Despite the unusual circumstances our community faced this summer, the real estate market continued to perform very well for both buyers and sellers in the third quarter. Speed was required on the part of many of our buyers. Homes sold very quickly over the past three months, often selling the same day they were listed for sale. Coupled with the lowest interest rates in the country’s history, it was a fantastic period to buy a home. Heading into the winter months, inventory is lower than anticipated. This makes it a great time to research what the market could bring on your home.

Market activity peaked in July, making it one of the busiest months around the office in recent memory. Despite the unusual circumstances, market activity is in good shape through nine months of this year.

Interest rates have stayed at historic lows throughout the year, now coming in at under 3%. For context, just over 12 years ago, you’d be paying twice as much interest on a mortgage as you would today. It is unquestionably a great time to secure a mortgage on a home!
