Everything is about perception. While many look at the fact that we went from over 3,100 sales in April 2019 to 2,194 in April 2020 and panic over the prospect of a market crash, I see something else. We must understand that we’ve been in a lockdown—I’m actually surprised that April’s numbers were that high given the insane circumstances. 

Things were so dire that the government had to flip the emergency switch and give trillions of dollars to American citizens and small businesses, yet homes in San Diego were still selling in the thousands. That testifies to a strong market!
