Pent-up Demand is Surging


July 11, 2020
Good Morning,
I hope your summer is going well and you are enjoying the
sun and beach as much as possible.
The housing market continues to recover with pent-up demand surging at the national level and mortgage applications rising as buyers capitalize on record low rates. As of June 30, 2020, showing activity was 56.2% above the same time of last year. On average, 801 homes closed on the MLS each day last week—up from 795 the previous week. In addition, closed sales have now been above the pre-COVID levels of early march for the past 4 weeks consecutively. This largely owes to the rebound in pending sales that began in mid-April.
Have a great weekend!

If I were stranded on a Desert Island and have to live off of one type of food, it would have to be Greek Food. Raised by a Greek father, my mom had to know how to make a mean moussaka, pastitsio and spanakopita. Last week I was hankering for Moussaka so Steve and I discovered the Greek Bistro in Laguna Hills. they have 5 stats on yelp with 600+ votes…..
