The Marathon bombings traumatized Greater Boston and arguably the country as well.
Like many others, I have found myself heartbroken for the families of the victims and reminded of the precariousness of life and, in the end, what truly matters.
I freaked out and pulled my daughter out of daycare Friday morning. Overreacting, I guess, but that's part of being a parent at times. And I made doubly sure to make it to church on Sunday, even though I'd rather have gone hiking with the kids on a beautiful spring day. Showing up, supporting my faith community, however modestly, seemed overpoweringly like the right thing to do.
Of course, for those caught up in the spring real estate market, this is a strange time indeed.
Anyway, I am going to keep this simple.I am interested in what both buyers and sellers saw out there in the past week, whether things completely shut down, and what expectations are for the remainder of the spring market.
Along those lines, here are a couple more questions?
- If you are house hunting, has your view of the real estate market changed?
- Are you rethinking at all what you want to buy, or where you want to buy it? Would you buy on the Marathon route?
- Did you take a break? And, if so, are you planning to start looking again at another point?
