Corona Virus! OK, we've been cooped up for over a month now, with the state restricting showings on new listings. The good news is showings are once again allowed (as of 27 April), so you won't have to put an offer on a home strictly based on virtual tours and photos.
Other than this inconvenience, we've seen little impact on the housing market in Colorado Springs. Home prices have not decreased, and homes under $450K are still still going under contract much fast than an "average" market. The quarantine has impacted many financially, so it's possible we'll see a little better inventory in the coming months as people opt to sell their homes to pull their equity...which is good news for buyers.
