We are in the final month of 2020, and I have never been so happy to see a year come to an end! For the most part, 2020 was a great year for home sales, but it has been a year filled with anxiety and so many ups and downs and unknowns. Many people started decorating for Christmas immediately following Halloween in order to push 2020 to an end sooner.
While I am ready to put 2020 behind me, I am also grateful for everything that I learned from this year. 2020 was the year that we all learned to slow down and smell the flowers again. The economy may have slowed down, but so did everything else.
I know I am supposed to talk about what to expect with the housing market in 2021, but I think it is best to end the year on a positive note and instead reflect on the good that came out of 2020. While a year of lockdowns, social distancing, and unemployment brought on new stress, this was also a year when we all learned to appreciate our loved ones and nature again. Like birthday parties, soccer games, and after work activities came to a halt, families learned to spend time together by throwing the ball outside or walking in the park again. The earth breathed a sigh of relief and so did we.
As we head into 2021, remember the story The Great Realisation told by Tom Foolery, https://www.greenpeace.org/new-zealand/story/the-great-realisation/, and remember how we all started baking, laughing, singing, and dancing again instead of commuting, working, and running around with crazy schedules.
Please join Energy Realty in making donations to the Christmas Store at Family Point Resources from December 9-11 by going to signupgenius.com and finish 2020 on a positive note.
