My, how quickly things can change.
As recently as two weeks ago, 2020 was shaping up to be a tremendous year. Now . . . the next few months will be challenging on many levels, both personal and professional, for most of us.
Anecdotally, the purchase market is showing signs of a significant slowdown. I’ll be watching our order counts and new MLS data from the Realtors® for real numbers. The recent volatility of interest rates is adversely affecting refinance volume as well.
I am optimistic that both markets are only being delayed, not permanently changed.
