For Week Ending March 28, 2020
This week was heavily influenced by the ongoing impacts from the spread of COVID-19. Washington passed a $2.2 trillion stimulus package and news broke that 3.28 million people filed for unemployment benefits last week—nearly five times the previous weekly record. As more businesses temporarily close due to the growing outbreak, even higher unemployment filings are expected in coming weeks. As many begin or continue to shelter at home, real estate activity is slowing down right along with the rest of the economy.
