Rogers Healy on how the real estate market became the Wild Wild West
Today’s Daily Download episode features an interview with Rogers Healy, the owner, and CEO of Rogers Healy and Associates. In this episode, Healy explains how the COVID-19 pandemic has transformed the real estate industry and describes its impact on homeowners and homebuyers.
During the interview, Healy also touches on how low mortgage rates have contributed to an uptick in demand, which has created an inventory shortage that has intensified homebuying competition.
According to Healy, thriving housing markets like Dallas, Austin and Spokane, Washington are experiencing such a boom, that they can only be compared to the Wild Wild West.
“I’ve never seen it this busy and I’ve never worked this much, and I’m not even talking from an ownership perspective, but just from being a realtor as well,” Healy said. “I’ve been through a bad cycle where you just kind of wait for the bottom to fall out, but this time it makes complete sense.”
“We’re seeing competitive offer situations like we did back in 2007. It’s extremely busy, especially in markets like Austin, Charlotte, DFW and you know, Spokane, Washington, which are like junior versions of LA, New York, Chicago and Miami,” he sadded. “It’s been crazy. It’s the Wild Wild West right now.”
