Since the BC government has reopened all our public spaces and various businesses, we have seen a real increase in the number of people listing their homes, and as a result more sales.
We have now had almost 4 months of learning how to do real estate in a safe and productive way, with our masks, gloves, hand sanitizers and social distancing ( which is a bit tough in some of those small 1970's elevators!).
The busiest market is the condo market which is where home purchasing is still most affordable especially under $1,000,000. Because of the pause in the market during the shut down, we had more buyers than sellers and actually had many multiple offers on properties. That is continuing now into June.
It does put pressure on Buyers to be ready - with their financing, the diligent reading of documents, potential pre- home inspections and more.
However, more home owners feel comfortable opening their homes up to potential buyers and there are more homes available to see. We are continuing to keep our buyers and sellers safe, as we always have, but now in a more attentive way.
Let me know if you have any questions!
