    Yep, I imagine we're about to get another wave of Boston residents in southern NH as it's in striking distance for meetings and has no income tax. Also semi-reasonable real estate prices. I feel bad for the locally employed as teachers and others can't compete with Google et Al salaries

    If they didn’t make the jump over the last 20 years, they probably won’t suddenly see NH as anything other than cow hampshire ever.

    That being said the farm stand in Kensington is proudly a safe space with plenty of signage explaining so. I couldn’t help but tell them they didn’t need a sign, it’s already written on the license plates but they didn’t get the joke.

    Boulder is really active after a brutal April, stats are starting to improve and a ton of property going under contract. I've received 3 new referrals this past week alone (2 buyers, one seller) as well as a new Zillow buyer for my listings up in Nederland (and hell no, I don't pay Zillow for leads).

    Trying to remain optimistic, I have a closing in a couple of weeks and I'm really grateful to be working.

    good to hear!

    I think it will be a while (if ever) before the lower end of the Boulder market stumbles badly, but like the recession, inventory may dry up as everyone decides to just hold.

    If I had a $1.5M+ property and was hoping to sell soon, I'd be getting nervous (which may be part of why things are heating up, people who had near term plans to sell are pushing to the market now).

    It seems like an even smaller supply is the main driver in keeping prices propped in the markets I follow. Even if there are fewer buyers, there are even fewer sellers.

    This. Figure some prevailing thoughts along the lines of ‘’if we had got that house we were outbid on last October then we would be in the same position we are in now, and turns out that’s still where we want to be.’’ I’m curious to see if there are also a significant amount of buyers waiting for the supply flood that is almost sure to happen at some point. It feels that way from what I can tell but there’s no way to quantify it (obviously).

Lots of large tech employers having staff WFH, combined with schools being closed has made a big difference there. So savor that!
    Nah, you speak the truth. I piss in my own cheerios everytime I look at Redfin and get notifications on favorites that are pending almost instantaneously.

    That is a good silver lining. We are expanding working from home both at my job, and wives job...so that's good too! I commuted weekly between PDX and Seattle for a year, and dealt with the 405 love every day. It's all upside from there...

    FWIW, my experience was that redfin and zillow were late on every single listing i was interested in. When i finally used a realtor, i was notified and visited spots days before they were listed on redfin or zillow. Im currently looking at buying a house and maybe selling my condo, but dont want to buy at the top of the market so im just using redfin and zillow to get a feel for the market in the neighborhoods i like. When i actually get serious ill preapply for a loan and get with a realtor... possibly OftPiste on here.

    Good for you. I love not having to of gone into the office for the last 6 years now. Be patient and maybe do a 6 month rental. The market is tougher / stronger this time of year than after September. Also, with 15% of all home owners now delinquent on their mortgages, you may see a lot more inventory 90+ days down the road.

    Thanks. Renting is certainly an option. I am just not sure. Obviously, nothing is insulated from a major downturn, but Seattle feels much less likely to see significant decreases. Additionally, getting into the place our son will goto school without a change, and the move once not twice...makes us want to get a place off the bat. But, tough to know. I'm sure I am the first person to ever feel this way, but I sure wish I could predict the future with regard to the real estate market, and which route to go. (for that matter, stock market future prediction would be nice too...)

    Stressful times on so many levels, but at this point, we've got good jobs, friends and family are healthy, and I should stop my crying!

    Same here. I think there are buyers, maybe not as many sellers right now. I've been telling them sure I'm willing to sell and then give a 2x price of what my house is worth.

    Weird that they are now coming through text too.

    Why wouldn’t you use a realtor?

    If buying on mls. Seller gets double dip. Good for them.

    But don’t you know any realtors?
    Give them some love.

    Here's your chance to own your own private island. The perfect COVID-19 retreat! I see just one slight issue...

    edit: I was curious why a private, nearly 30 acre island would only have a 1,000 sq ft home on it. This is why: https://www.bizjournals.com/seattle/...and-chain.html

    Big spike in demand, but supply hasn't caught up yet.

    The big question is whether this demand surge will be a quick burst of buyers who deferred their plans during the shutdown or if it’ll last much longer as people hunt for more space and more affordable homes. Search data from Redfin.com suggests that migration from expensive metropolitan hubs to smaller cities and towns has been happening for years, but it seems to be gaining steam since the coronavirus outbreak.

    Talking to clients thinking of buying, they all want to know when prices will correct and my short comment is years end into 2021 if people in forbearance end up in foreclosure. And this just in...

    Counterpoint - our neighbors just listed their house for 15% less than they bought it for. In 2005.
    Charlie, here comes the deuce. And when you speak of me, speak well.
