How has the coronavirus impacted your work?

This virus has made a mess of things, truly. In my area we are still able to show homes but in very small numbers and we are advised against showing lived-in residential homes. I haven't had much to do if I am being honest and it is quite scary to think of the future. I read several places are speaking on how the housing market can crash again. Bad times!

Yup, it's like that for me as well. Most places now won't even allow you outside your home, so I can see most realtor companies denying people from accessing houses and such. I mean, it's better to be safe than sorry afterall.

It was basically dead for 3 months. I was not showing any homes or nothing like the sort. I was mainly just working on fixing a few places up.

Not really. I tend to only focus on one property at a time and I am not in the selling phase yet. I think when it comes down to getting appliances I may run into issues. I saw on the news that there is a shortage going on now.

I am not in the market for buying any other properties right now so it hasn't changed anything for me. I rent 6 homes out. I did have to excuse rent for 1 month for all of my properties just to help my renters out but since I had a savings and no repairs were needed, I was happy to do it.

Yes, sadly. I have not been able to make a sale. No one in this area are looking to buy as a lot of people are still without employment. Some people are looking to sell so they can have money but there are not many people out there looking to buy.
