How the Coronavirus Is Affecting Our Real Estate Market

These are difficult times, but real estate is still moving. Today I’m sharing some promising signs from our Phoenix market.

Curious as to how COVID-19 has impacted real estate? Over the last month, roughly 8,500 properties have sold in Greater Phoenix. Considering that we’ll sell 7,000 a month on average, it’s clear that there’s still some very strong demand in the market.

Many people ask the question, “When the market’s going to crash?” Truthfully, it will only crash if demand dies down and supply increases. On the supply side, we have 14,000 homes on the market—a slight increase from 11,000 last month, but historically speaking, our norm here is 30,000; we went into this pandemic with extremely low inventory, which now serves as a barrier keeping home prices healthy.

In the Real Estate Market, It’s Been Business As Usual

Despite all the economic turbulence caused by the coronavirus, it's been business as usual for real estate.

How is the coronavirus affecting the real estate market? Sales-wise, it’s been business as usual, and we haven’t seen a drop-off in prices either so far. The same can be said on the mortgage side of things. Part of the government’s $2 trillion-dollar stimulus package involves them buying down rates, which makes now a great time to buy or refinance.

Give us a chance to beat Opendoor!

The seller's market story continues, but there is more going on in this real estate market than meets the eye. 

Have you ever heard of iBuyers? These are tech-driven real estate investors, like Opendoor and OfferPad, that are absorbing more of the market share. Their total sales dollars have increased 14 percent over the last year. Other investing companies are also buying up properties. This is one of the reasons supply is so low right now. 

These companies are responsible for a growing amount of purchases throughout the valley. They bring cash offers and promise a quick and hassle-free transaction. Sounds great, right? Well then how about an even higher cash offer, that also comes with a quick and hassle-free transaction. That is what we can bring you. 

We have had several clients come to us recently after getting a purchase offer from one of these iBuyers. They wanted to check and see how these offers would compare to what we could do for them. We are happy t ...

How we got over 60 interested buyer leads for a listing over one weekend

This seller's market is still booming, but traditional and innovative strategies will still help you generate the highest possible sale price. One key factor is exposing your house to the right people through marketing. But this can be a really confusing process with all the channels available. That is why we suggest hiring a great agent that specializes in your area and has proven marketing tactics.

A savvy agent should know the traditional marketing channels that would work best for your house and neighborhood: postcards, flyers, open houses, etc. When sitting down with your agent, however, make sure they have a comprehensive approach that includes the most effective digital strategies as well.

For example, we spend a lot of money on digital advertising that targets specific audiences on Facebook and Instagram. One recent campaign we ran for a client captured 60 interested buyers over the course of one weekend!
