Prices holding steady: With stable inventory on the market, sellers are receiving multiple offers at or above asking price - most within 10 days or less.
COVID-19's impact on buying and selling during a time of socially distant real estate transactions has really put digital buying technologies to the test, the result? According to a survey by Realtor.com consumers have really warmed up to the idea of purchasing a home without actually visiting it in person.
Key second-home markets like Palm Springs have seen demand trends accelerate in response to COVID-19. Riverside County saw its views per property growing at 34% year-over-year in May, up from just 6% in January post-COVID-19.
According to a May Zillow survey: 36% say they’d buy a home entirely online and 43% would sell a home entirely online
Virtual Tour real estate sales and zoom or FaceTime buyer consultations are now standard practice.
Virtual tours climbed by nearly 600% last month. Listings with 3D tours attracted 66% more visitors & 90% more saves in April.
Virtual tours allow for buyers to look at homes over and over again. Resulting in fewer or no buyers walking in your home.
