With unemployment rates at an all-time high, should we expect to see a dip in the real estate market in the coming months?
Currently, prices seem to actually be trending upwards as properties are actually pulled from the market due to COVID-19. However, I think it makes sense that as unemployment hits households, some people will have no option but to put their properties up for sale in the coming months.
There’s also a question of what types of properties are effected. The most prevalent business sectors affected by unemployment is the service industry where wages are lower than average. Will a drop in prices in lower-end housing also affect more affluent areas?
I’m not sure if I’m thinking about things correctly here so I wanted to get some opinions.
