Understand how Covid19 affects the 90640 Real Estate Market with Realtor Armando Arenas

MONTEBELLO, Calif. - Californer -- The current health crisis has impacted many industries and real estate is no exception. Real estate has been deemed an essential business and therefore, real estate agents can list and market properties effectively so long as Covid-19 safety measures are followed. Properties can be shown in person to a limited number of entrants and fully marketed  according to county guidelines.

With unemployment and work furloughs surging,  many buyers have decided to sit out the real estate market. This has lowered the amount of active buyers looking for homes. However, many sellers have done the same.  As a result, it is still a seller's market but there is good news for buyers too. Mortgage interest rates have dropped to historic lows increasing a buyers purchasing power. These conditions make it a good time to buy and sell. Just be cautious because things can change in a hurry.
