Sales of existing homes have plunged a whopping 17.8% in April, and may, with the real estate industry reeling from the downturn brought on by the coronavirus pandemic.
Phoenix, United States – June 6, 2020 /MarketersMedia/ —
Arizona, USA – The National Association of Realtors had stated just last month that the decline in the overall economy had pushed down sales of homes across the US, including Arizona. The current rate of 4.33 million units year, is the lowest it has been since September 2011. All signs are pointing to there being a potential collapse, especially in states like Arizona, where there are more sellers than buyers. Making it primarily a buyer’s market.
Experts closely monitoring the market have stated that May has experienced the largest single-month decline of slightly over 22%. To put things into context, it is as bad as things were for Arizona’s property market in 2010. The receding number of buyers has meant that prices of homes sold have declined dramatically, putting average prices at around $286,000 annually.
Sales across the country are at an all-time low across with the West seeing the sharpest drop of 25%, followed by South’s 17.9%, the Northeast by 16.9% and the Midwest by 12%. What’s worse is the fact that with each passing month as the country is under lockdown, the market continues to decline, which will consequently lead to a collapse.
Over 36 million Americans and counting have already filed for unemployment benefits since the start of the pandemic. It is worse than the 2009 recession, which was mainly triggered by the crisis created by subprime mortgages. A Gallup Poll shows that only 50% percent of all Americans believe that this is a good time to buy a home, which is a record low, and a 10% decrease from the same time last year. However, those looking for a quick injection of cash by selling off their homes can do so by contacting local buyers like AZ Home Offer.
