The COVID-19 pandemic has negatively impacted the growth of the market. The impact of the pandemic was visible in the first few months of the crisis, especially from a retail standpoint, owing to strict lockdown measures and movement restrictions.

Potential buyers began to ramp up their search for and purchase of homes, boosting the growth of the real estate market. According to the National Association of Realtors, pending sales in U.S. metro areas, which were down more than 30% in April 2020, were up almost 30% by August 2020.
