I can't tell you how many times in my over 20 years of real estate, I have heard a buyer tell me that they just want to wait for the market to slow down before they jump in. This crazy Covid pandemic is no different. Many thought that the market would slow to a snails pace and that we may even see prices drop, but that certainly was not the case! While the "experts" predicted a drop of 6%, we actually saw the highest price rise in a two month period since 1991.

As my husband and I sat and talked about our blog post for the day, we ended up marveling at the lack of information that is disseminated for military members when they PCS to a new base or post. When he was transferring from Fort Benning to Fort Carson, he was sorely lacking in resources and ended up not utilizing the many resources that would have made his PCS more smooth and efficient. His real estate agent was some rando he selected from the interweb, (obviously days before Veterans Housing Network) and the home he purchased remotely was not quite the charmer his agent described. Of course, most of this did not matter too much since he found himself in the sandbox for most of his time stationed at Fort Carson, but it sure would have been better if someone, anyone, would have made resources available to him. Let's face it, you need all the help you can get!
