Here We Go Again?

Filed under: Market Comentary

The big news of the week is that we are going back to a partial shutdown again. These are crazy, unprecedented times – it’s hard to know what to say about it. We are back to conversations about who is essential and who is not, with businesses looking for ways to stay open while honoring the shutdown orders.

Mortgages = Essential Business

It’s worth noting: the mortgage business was deemed essential early on in this pandemic process. You still have access to mortgage services and all other real estate-related services.

This industry has been amazing at getting into a mode where everyone can work safely. For example, Realtors have a bunch of disclosures and protocols that are being used to keep everyone safe.

Thank goodness that mortgages are still available because the rates are so good right now! It would be awful if mortgages were shut down and people couldn’t access these rock-bottom interest rates.
