The new novel-coronavirus or COVID-19 has forever changed the world as we all know it. Since the outbreak of the pandemic, social distancing guidelines have been limiting the business operations of many companies in all parts of the globe, including real estate brokerage firms. Many countries and communities have also imposed a lockdown as an attempt to contain the spread of the virus.
In light with these enigmatic scenarios, we are now seeing different trends these days.
Macro: Economic Trends
The US has a big Stimulus Bill of $2 Trillion considering it has a GDP of US$ 21 Trillion for 2019. We are able to create a lot of money with minimal products and services which may cause inflation to the economy. Despite that, the real estate industry still offers stability and market growth as far as volatility is concerned.
We are now hitting the unemployment rate from 11.1% or 17.8 million as of June 2020.
Micro: Real Estate Investment Community
There is a slight upward trend with 4.2 M mortgages in forbearance which is 8.47% of all home loans. Investors with good credits are likely to still get loans but those who do not have such good credits will likely be declined which in turn will decrease the number of buyers in the long run.
Physical events are turning to virtual events which also leads to acceleration of work from home automation technologies.
Automation and Artificial Intelligence are also becoming hot trends which also exemplifies the significance of data flow. Data or information is now the new oil for the economic machinery.

Virtual Real Estate Transactions under New Normal
Landlords, property owners, tenants, and brokers alike can benefit from this technology. Developers and building owners can use VR and AR in advertising their listings through their websites and provide their clients with a more experiential way of viewing the spaces they offer. Moreover, having an online platform offers the seller a wider reach with international clients.
Tenants and company owners who are looking for office spaces can conveniently browse and “experience” commercial listings and filter depending on their requirements. VR and AR present a more convenient and cost-effective method of generating listing that would be helpful for business owners to decide.
Companies that are adopting these strategies also create a better relationship with existing and potential clients. This innovation provides convenience and a more immersive purchasing experience and transaction which ultimately positions the real estate industry to better handle increased transaction volume.
Innovative services to real estate agents such as 3D Tours, Virtual Tours, Aerial Videos, Floor Plans, HD Photography and Augmented Reality are helping real estate agents to continue selling homes amid the current Coronavirus pandemic. But these are not the only business transactions that are now going virtual.
