Ep 66: Emerging Behaviors During Pandemic

How is the pandemic changing the way buyers and sellers are behaving? A recent study found seven different trends emerging due to COVID-19 and they could impact real estate over the long-term. Let’s find out whether Colleen agrees with each of these behaviors and how they’ll impact Oregon.

On This Episode:

We’ve talked quite a bit over the past few months about how the coronavirus has changed the real estate industry and the processes we have in place. Now let’s look at how it could shift behaviors over the long-term.

The National Association of Realtors recently published some observations and findings about trends that they’ve seen over the past few months. They listed seven behaviors that have emerged during this COVID-19 pandemic and we want to get Colleen’s commentary on each one. Is she seeing the same things around Oregon?
