Iconic Homes Newsletter - July 2020

Dear Friends, we're all hungering for a return to normalcy while musing our well-being and the health of others. As Los Angeles county progresses through its phases of re-opening, we encourage you all to support local, small businesses.


In real estate news, we are seeing an uptrend in real estate activity, "this won't be a summer market, it will be a delayed spring market," says Compass CEO Robert Reffkin. So if you are thinking about selling your home, don't think twice.

This crisis is worsening the disparity among economic groups in this country, and as a consequence, many people now on unemployment who experience difficulty getting re-employed as the economy reopens, and who after July will not get the extra $600 payments, will seek forbearance starting in August, which will have an impact on the revenues collected by their landlords. According to some economists, this probably won't have an effect on the luxury market.
The Zillow 2Q Home Price Expectations Survey features forecasts from 100 economists, and those forecasts range from -10% to +5.5% for calendar year 2020. Such a divergence reinforces the point that in this environment, very little is obvious.

Seasonal rentals range this summer from $80,000 to $250,000 per month. Are you considering a #staycation? Click here for the full read.
