Citrus Valley REALTORS® Podcast
Listen to CVAR staff talk about the speakers coming exclusively to CVAR and the @Home With CVAR presentations.
Listings Down – For the week ending May 2, total listings were down 19% annually, and new listings were down 39%, according to Realtor.com. The chief economist announced a revised forecast down 15%.

They expect home sales to rebound as virus concerns wane, but a combination of a future rise in infections and lingering unemployment will lead to a see-saw recovery with ups and downs. (Realtor.com)
