As with communities across the nation and world, real estate markets throughout the central-south Texas region have been affected by the coronavirus pandemic, but real estate experts are already pointing to what they see as promising signs that the Austin and San Antonio metro areas are well-positioned to withstand the impacts of the crisis.
An uptick in activity over the past few weeks, coupled with record-low mortgage rates have many feeling optimistic that our markets will emerge from a downturn sooner than later. With warmer weather, businesses reopening, and many people’s desire to relocate to our region all contributing to increased activity, the hope is that local real estate will soon return to its pre-pandemic highs.
At JBGoodwin REALTORS®, our current priority is the safety of our clients, their families, our team members, and, of course, the communities in which we all live and work. We continue to assist people in buying, selling and leasing homes but have adapted our business practices to accommodate the important need for social distancing and limited exposure.
Through the active use of both technology tools and precautionary guidelines, our goal is to continue providing the same high level of real estate service our clients have come to expect from our organization.
We invite you to contact your JBGoodwin agent about the specific tools and precautions they are employing during their real estate activities, but all of our clients should be aware that from showing homes to signing paperwork, our agents can accommodate the style of transaction that you are most comfortable with.
For your convenience, our agents are fully equipped to speak with you online about your real estate needs. They are able to do so utilizing a variety of well-known tools, so please let them know if there is one you are most familiar with.
