Yes, the real estate market is still alive and people are moving. Buyers are out looking and interest rates are historically low. Houses are being listed for sale and most seem to be going under contract fairly quickly. While the market is not as robust as it typically would be for this time of year, it is fairly active given current conditions. True, some sellers have temporarily pulled their homes off the market and some buyers are delaying their search for a month or so. However, the housing inventory faced a shortage before the pandemic and this is still the case. Which means home prices remain strong and it is still a sellers’ market.
The process has changed but the results are the same. Virtual tours, Zoom meetings, FaceTime, protocols requiring masks & gloves for actual showings, remote closings, etc. The industry has adapted to ensure properties can still be safely sold.
