New Yorkers Fleeing City for Country
Justin Papp, Peter Yankowski and Macklin Reid 
A pandemic-inspired influx of New Yorkers has hit Connecticut’s real estate market, including Ridgefield.
“The market is hot!” said Lynne Boehm, president of the Ridgefield Board of Realtors. “Homeowners thinking of selling should consider listing their properties now to take advantage of buyers looking to move to more wide open spaces.”
Large numbers of New Yorkers have changed their addresses in recent months in favor of Connecticut ZIP codes, according to data from the United States Postal Service (USPS).
Despite  the pandemic , many housing markets are rebounding across the country as pent-up demand is unleashed, and interest rates remain aggressively low. The pace is frenetic, even in markets that have typically had a more balanced supply of inventory.
Properties are going under contract in a matter of a day or two — if not just a few hours. With so many buyers on the move or electing to buy a second home, adjusting to such a crazy pace has been challenging for buyers, sellers and agents alike.
Besides wearing face masks when looking at homes, here are six ways to help buyers and sellers  manage expectations  in this current climate.

 How Resilient Is the Housing Market?
The housing market is recovering much faster than most other sectors in the economy in the current recession. But will it last?
The current housing shortage and homeowners’ strong equity positions will likely rescue real estate from any downturn that would be similar in scope to the 2008 financial crisis, economists said during the “Economic Outlook and Housing Trends” webinar Wednesday, hosted by Freddie Mac and the Down Payment Resource.
