03/19/20 - An observation from our team... today we have received feedback from many of our clients and potential clients with mixed thoughts on the current situation. Truth is, no one knows how this will turn out... some buyers are still interested in buying and taking advantage of very low mortgage rates and some buyers want to wait the situation out. Much of the same with sellers, some want to go on the market now expecting things to get worse and some want to wait it out. Either way, our team is here to help you with whatever decision you choose and constantly looking out for new updates that affect our industry.
