The beginning of April is typically real estate’s busy season, the height of the spring market, with sellers hosting open houses and buyers out touring properties. This year has been very different, as the COVID-19 pandemic has prompted stay-at-home orders across our area, and companies nationwide, including Long & Foster, have taken to conducting business virtually. The way we’re serving clients is definitely different, but what isn’t is our commitment to your safety and satisfaction. Many consumers have hit the pause button, taking this time instead to focus on their families, but demand has not fundamentally shifted. Likewise, some people still need to make a move and are leveraging low interest rates to do so. As of April 9, the 30-year fixed rate was an attractive 3.33%, according to Freddie Mac, prompting refinances for current owners and increasing buying power for shoppers. For those consumers who are currently buying or selling, our team still here for you! We’re leveraging technology to support you while following CDC and local guidelines for social distancing. From virtual tours to online closings, we’re helping consumers find their way home, from home. This past week alone, Long & Foster added over 650 new listings with […]

With the stock market experiencing increased volatility and more experts warning of an impending “Bear Market,” many people are considering real estate as a stable and reliable investment to balance their portfolios. A recent Bankrate survey concluded that 28% of respondents prefer real estate compared to 17% stocks when given the choice of long term investing. As real estate professionals, we’ve seen firsthand the value of investing in real property, from a simple diversification of assets to significant returns on investments. Why Invest? Real estate provides the investor four main benefits. In addition to steady cash flow from rental income, the investor will benefit from appreciation, depreciation, and principal reduction. Unlike a stock, real estate offers a tangible asset for individuals—an actual home in which you could live, if necessary. Here is a little more about the significant financial benefits attainable through investing in real estate: Cash Flow: An investment property—whether it is a condo, townhouse, suburban single-family house or an oceanfront vacation home —could bring positive cash flow from rental income. Tax Advantages: Deductions and depreciation are just two of the tax benefits that may be available to you as an investment property owner. Your tax adviser can help […]
