Mid January already and while the weather storms have been passing us by and leaving us dry, the political equivalent has dumped on us. Rural activity in the real estate market stalled around the time of the vote counting shenanigans but true to form, people bounce back quickly. Buyers are like bees in a honey pot again and the severe inventory shortage is exacerbating the situation. The pending change of regime will, we believe, allay the qualms many people have been going through and the high stock market will encourage some to diversify their portfolios into real estate. Either way, Joe is coming in with the market at an all time high, and the cavalry is charging in with the vaccine. It will be a better year than last.
