Navigating the market in turbulent times, plus a sampling of high- and low-priced real estate listings in London this week
MARCH SCHOOL BREAK is upon us. Two years ago, the same March break started and Covid scared us to the point we didn’t know if we’d ever go back. The pandemic has taken us on a wild ride in real estate for the last two years. Valuations in our market have never been higher, with population growth combined with short supply creating a perfect storm for record-setting prices.
The other market motivator has been the seemingly endless supply of cheap money. Our economy, at such peril due to the pandemic, has returned with enthusiasm, giving policy makers their first opportunity to raise interest rates to “calm” things down. We will now see if our property feeding frenzy can be slowly, methodically tamed so as not create a “correction”.
In these less-than-certain times, we must be vigilant as we make the biggest investment of our lives. Get professional help. Know what you can afford. Prioritize what’s important to you. Live the life you deserve. Keep your eyes open to the world around you ― appreciate what you have. As the world seemingly falls apart, be thankful we live in this beautiful, safe, free country that is without peril.
One last thing: to all the women in my home, my work, our community, our institutions ― you’re quite simply, the indispensable best of us!
