The inventory of active listings is up, and the number of sales and the percentage of listings selling are well down since the pandemic struck. Values and value metrics - median sales prices, average dollar per square foot, average cap rate and GRM - remain relatively stable. Unemployment and the "work from anywhere" phenomenon have caused vacancy rates to surge and rent rates to plunge. Tenant-landlord and property showing regulations continue to be extremely restrictive. It is undoubtedly a challenging market, but deals continue to be made.
