What is the impact of Covid-19 on the Pinecrest real estate market?

The Pinecrest Real Estate Market and Covid-19 | What is happening now?

What is the impact of Covid-19 on the Pinecrest real estate market? A question we hear a lot these days! Pinecrest is a primary market with families residing there throughout the year. These families need housing and they need a place to live. The Pinecrest market reacts very differently to economic changes than a more investment driven market like Miami Beach for example.

Pinecrest is desired (among other reasons) for its great school district. Therefore many families try to move into the area before the new school year starts. As a Pinecrest realtor and a resident of the area for more than 10 years, I usually see an increase in demand for Pinecrest homes in the period between mid-April to May. This is the period deals are made, so families can move in during the summer months.

What is the impact of Covid-19 on the Pinecrest real estate market? Pinecrest Deals are Either Expedited or Postponed


In the past weeks we noticed that many buyers are expediting deals. They need a home and they want to move in as soon as possible. Many of them just sold their own property and have no place to live. There is a sense of urgency with people who sold a home or want to lock themselves in before we are in full quarantine. These are not the opportunistic buyers but rather families or people with a real need.

On the other hand we also see many delays, as properties cannot be shown and open houses are prohibited. I am sure these deals are still happening, but just with a delay. Pinecrest is a primary market in a superb school district. The demand is present it is just the current challenging situation we are living in that makes the buying process stand still for the moment.

We are seeing however an increased amount of realtors offering virtual tours of homes and during these moments people are getting increasingly creative to serve their clients. As mentioned before, we are preparing ourselves for a busy post Covid-19 period when many families are in a rush to find a new home. Our website is seeing increased traffic these days with a record amount of subscribers. If you are planning to put your house on the market, be conscious as to where you are in the price spectrum.

Advice for Pinecrest buyers

Start with searching online and ask your Pinecrest realtor for more details of the house. Maybe the home has a virtual tour already or your realtor can request one.
