Arm Yourself With The Facts And Understand How The Housing Market Will Be Affected By Coronavirus
The NAR Chief Economist Dr. Lawrence Yun recently spoke about his thoughts on how the economy and the housing market will be affected by the Coronavirus. He specifically discussed how fluctuations in the economy would impact the real estate market, if the Spring selling season would be pushed back into Summer and why the economy and the real estate industry will bounce back! See some of his direct quotes below from his recent discussion.
Direct quotes from Dr. Yun:
"Housing is on very solid ground, yet we are running into this economic quarantine...that is shutting down the economy temporarily."
"If it is on short duration, one can anticipate quite a strong real estate rebound after say one or two months of somewhat of a lacklustre activity."
"We had a housing shortage going into this virus situation. And if the duration of this virus negative impact is short..we'll run into the housing shortage right away again."
"If it (the economic shutdown) is of short duration, it will be just a delayed Spring buying season. It could be in August or September when we see that normal Spring buying season occur."
"If there is a short duration Coronavirus impact, then we will see a fairly robust late Summer going into Fall home sales market."
"Housing is on very solid ground if we were to go into a recession."
"The fact that we are in a very accommodating monetary policy means mortgage rates will be at historic lows. The most recent data shows about 3.3 percent. It could even go down to 3 percent."
"Half of Americans don't have any exposure to the stock market, so they're just looking at the low mortgage rates."
"Once the all-clear signal is addressed to say the virus situation is over, I think we're going to see a great robust rebound in people searching for homes."
"People need to be reminded to be resourceful."
"Stay at home, but if you're staying at home, how can you be resourceful?"
"I would like to see more home building activity come onto the market once we go past this crisis."
"If one feels that their job is secure, and many jobs are...take advantage of the record-low mortgage rates."
"Maybe there are less buyers out in the market during the crisis, which means there's less competition and better price negotiation potential."
"There will be more people working at home...so we may actually begin to see more people wanting to search for different homes to fit their lifestyle a little better."
"The housing market has a huge potential for growth."
"Over the next five years, probably four of those five years will be an improving year."
"People who are planning for the future long term in real estate, they will do well."
"It's going to pass. This short-term virus negative impact will pass."
"Even if it takes a little longer to contain it, there is such a solid fundamental for the real estate market, things will play out very well over the long haul."
