June 2020 Low Rates & Tight Inventory

Today’s low interest rates allow you to pay about the same monthly payment for a $333,000 home today, as you would have for a $249,000 home in 2005, 15 years ago.

Gallup Poll April 24, 2020

Real estate, at 35%, remains the most favored investment to Americans, as has been the case since 2013, when the housing market was on the rebound. More than a third of Americans have named real estate as the top investment since 2016


According to Diana Olick, CNBC, on May 27, “Mortgage demand from home buyers shows unexpectedly strong and quick recovery… The quick recovery has surprised most forecasters.”

75+% of job loses are temporary layoffs and furloughs according to employers – Federal Reserve Bank May Report
