Weekly Report

8/6/2020

More time, more attention, best outcome.

Good morning neighbor,

 

How are you? What do you got going on today? It’s looking a little cloudy out there. I’m seeing rain. That’s fine with me, I’m staying in today. I have some paperwork stuff to catch up on. What are you working on? Let me know if there is anything I can help you with. 
 

I hope you’re staying active getting out as much as you can (safely). I’d love to hear what you’ve been up to. I got my bike tire fixed and have been riding more. I’m usually just worried about getting hit by a car but now I’m looking out for potholes in the road. The last one I hit almost threw me off my bike. I’m finding safe routes now. Do you ride? Come join! Maybe you don’t ride but want to get out and move? I’ve got two dogs and we go on big walks every day. We would love for you to join!

 

Have a good day and enjoy the rest of your week. Reach out if you need anything! I’m around. 

 

Best,
Evan Zener

Five Housing Market Predictions For 2020 -FORBES REAL ESTATE COUNCIL

In 2019 we saw interest rates drop, housing inventory remain low and hot markets continue to heat up. Will those trends persist in 2020? Will home sales remain stagnant in the new year? Will an influx of new housing inventory come onto the market? Will younger consumers stop renting and start owning?

Here are five predictions that are likely to shape the 2020 housing market and help us answer these questions and more:

Coronavirus: Housing Demand Shifts -OREGON BUSINESS
The residential real estate market remains strong as buyer habits change.
