How has COVID change the real estate market?

how should I be thinking about things when selling my house now? Can I still list high? Do I still have to ask for masks in open houses or not do open houses at all. It's scary having people you don't know in you home.

Prices have leveled out a bit. Sellers are still getting over asking when priced right. You can do an open house if you feel comfortable doing one. I know it is a little unsettling to have strangers through your house but it should not take long to sell your home in this market if it is priced right.

COVID has had a huge effect on the real estate market. It has made it more difficult for buyers and sellers to conduct business in person, reducing open houses, viewings, and inspections, resulting in fewer transactions taking place. Low inventory levels, historically low interest rates, and increased demand from buyers are all driving up home prices. Other effects of the pandemic include longer closing times, delays in appraisals, and an increase in virtual buying and selling processes.

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a significant impact on the real estate market globally. One of the most significant changes has been the shift in preferences for residential properties. With work from home becoming the new norm, people are now looking for larger homes with dedicated office space and outdoor areas. This has led to a surge in demand for single-family homes, townhouses, and suburban properties. Conversely, there has been a decline in demand for apartments in urban areas, especially in dense cities. Another significant impact of COVID-19 on the real estate market has been the acceleration of digitalization. Real estate agents have had to adopt new technologies to market and sell properties virtually. Online property tours, virtual staging, and video calls have become increasingly popular. Additionally, many buyers and sellers have become more comfortable with online transactions, leading to a surge in digital closings. The pandemic has also caused a shift in the commercial real estate sector. With remote work becoming more prevalent, many companies are reconsidering their office space requirements, resulting in a decline in demand for commercial real estate in some areas. However, there has been an increase in demand for industrial properties, driven by the growth of e-commerce. Overall, the COVID-19 pandemic has had a profound impact on the real estate market, and it is likely that many of these changes will persist even after the pandemic ends.
