Will COVID-19 Change the Future of Real Estate Development?

In the matter of months, the world as we know it has completely changed. Although this is only a temporary new “normal,” the effects of this pandemic will be felt long after it dissipates. One area that has been affected that many people are not thinking about is the world of real estate development.

As stated in Forbes, there has been a shift in the buzzwords that real estate buyers are using due to the pandemic. What once was important to buyers has changed and new buzzwords have emerged such as “virtual, distanced, privacy, and mine.” All real estate developers alike can agree on one thing, health and wellness will be in the top three of all buyer’s wish lists. Real estate developers should be aware of this change and prepare to adapt, however, overcorrecting their strategies and focusing on only coronavirus-related trends could also be a mistake. Make sure to highlight trends that will last more than three months to one year.
