Know where you stand
Traditionally, the spring market is prime time for real estate agents and brokers, with homeowners in many markets aiming to roll out their listings in time to greet throngs of eager buyers. However, COVID-19 shutdowns in mid-March put a crimp in a lot of plans, causing many sellers to cancel their listings in favor of a more cautious, wait-and-see approach to the market.
Now, the pent-up demand on both the buyer and seller sides appears to be driving a late market renaissance and analysts are predicting an unusually active fall market. This has implications for both buyers and sellers. The good news is that this rare fall market offers the perfect opportunity to make your 2020 real estate dreams a reality.
For many, autumn is the best time of year. The return of cool breezes, comforting foods, and pumpkins can be invigorating. It’s also a bookmark of sorts, especially for your finances—a perfect time to take stock of your spending after the summer’s over to see what lies ahead. These tips can help you make simple, sensible choices and take action to make the most of your money, from your food choices to your financial options to protecting your most valuable assets.
