COVID-19 has impacted the real estate market mainly by causing substantially fewer sellers to list their homes for sale.   Below are some graphs that show the initial decrease in various market activities and then their recovery on a weekly basis.

HOMES LISTED PER WEEK

As illustrated, the number of homes listed for sale per week dropped in March 2020 after the stay at home advisory was enacted. 2021 is catching back up to where inventory should have been based on previous years data.

HOMES PENDING PER WEEK

The number of homes placed under agreement (contracts accepted) dropped in the second week of March 2020, when normally at that time pendings are in the rise. The decline lasted until the second week of April, and then gained steam.  2021 has fought to keep up, but hasn’t reached typical levels yet.
