What’s New? Coronavirus and Real Estate.
The coronavirus pandemic has affected how we live our daily lives, including the way we buy and sell real estate. With increasing calls for social distancing, Compass has introduced Virtual Agent Services (VAS), an exclusive suite of marketing services offered to all Compass clients, which includes virtual open houses and neighborhood tours, dynamic digital listing brochures, enhanced 3D staging, and much more. VAS is a safe way to continue to share properties while promoting the health and safety of our agents and clients. Safety first!
What's New? Mortgage Rates Remain Low.
The Federal Reserve cut interest rates to near-zero, but mortgage rates won't drop to that point anytime soon. According to finance website Bankrate,
loan originators are overwhelmed with demand and need to raise their own rates in order to ensure that the loan remains profitable for them. However,
it's still a good time for many borrowers to refinance their mortgage and reduce their monthly costs.
What's New? Redfin will cut 7% of it's staff and furlough 41% of it's agent force with a majority furloughed until September 1, and the remaining laid off due to the Coronavirus.
