Some people say they will hold out on making a buying or selling decision as they feel the market prices could fall dramatically, depending on who is chosen as the President.
There will always be a high demand for a place to live in the USA. In the greater Sacramento Valley of California, our current real estate environment has not had enough home inventory for years. New homes are the only way to add inventory, and they are slowed down due to covid.
