Window to the Law: Showing Guidance During a Pandemic
In-person showings can be a potentially risky activity, as the coronavirus is still actively spreading in many parts of the country. By following a few key guidelines, real estate professionals can serve the best interests of their clients in selling or buying a home, while also protecting the health and wellbeing of all concerned.

Economic Outlook: August 2020 Existing & Pending Home Sales
Even in the midst of a global pandemic, August home sales were higher compared to one year ago. Pending contracts are hitting all-time highs, implying that the autumn housing market activity will be stronger; the winter months also look bright because there are plenty of buyers in the pipeline. One constraining factor: not enough inventory.
