The effects Cornavirus will have on the economy and the housing market will continue to unfold throughout the remainder of 2020. In a special podcast of The Brian Buffini Show, Dr. Lawrence Yun, Chief Economist and Senior Vice President of Research at the National Association of REALTORS® provides insight on how the economy will impact the real estate market, possible changes to the Spring selling season and education on why the economy will bounce back.
As we move through November each year, many people make an effort to slow down, regroup and take the opportunity to count their blessings. At ERA Landmark, the agents and staff feel there is so much for which to be thankful. Some have been in Montana their whole lives and never left. (“Why mess with a good thing?”) Others were raised here, wandered elsewhere for a wide variety of reasons, and returned back to their original home. (“The grass may not have been greener.”) Still more stumbled across our great state or waited for the right transition point in their lives to relocate. (“Saving the best for last.”)
Real estate markets feature available properties for sale that come in all shapes and sizes, new and old, basic to extravagant, and wasteful to green. There was a time not so long ago that taking sustainability into consideration when building or remodeling a home was not a concern. Those days seem to be behind us. The industry has taken more notice with each passing year, even though the green movement has formally been making steady strides for the last three decades.
