“This month’s activity was in line with what we would typically see for August; however, due toCOVID-19 the trends for the year are not what we would normally experience. Over the Spring, we saw lower than normal activity, but a balance between supply and demand. Into the Summer months we saw an increase in activity where we would normally see a decrease. As we move into the Fall, we would expect a return to higher activity. With the potential for a second wave of the virus we don’t want to make any predictions, butRAHB REALTORS® will continue to find houses for buyers and buyers for sellers in a healthy and safe way.” - RAHB President Kathy Della-Nebbia.
