Pandemic Home Buying and Selling

Buying and selling homes during the pandemic – evolving trends and key insights

The COVID-19 pandemic has presented challenges to the economy and businesses around the country, yet the housing market continues to boom. With stay-at-home orders requiring people to spend more time in their houses this year, needs have shifted and new trends are emerging as many re-evaluate what they find most important in a home.

This week, the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS® released the 2020 Profile of Home Buyers and Sellers, an annual survey of over 8,000 people who purchased or sold from July 2019 to June 2020, which showcases emerging trends and patterns for buyers and sellers and offers a new section this year that examines how the pandemic is affecting people’s attitudes and purchase and sales decisions.
