COVID-19 and the Bay Area's Housing Market

Lunchtime Forum

After many years of precipitous ascent, many thought the current pandemic would bring Bay Area home prices crashing down. And though some data points to declining rents in San Francisco, similar decreases haven't occurred in other parts of the Bay Area. At the same time, sales of luxury homes have jumped to historic highs across the region. Are the changes that we’re seeing short term blips or long term trends? Is there really a movement away from urban living, or is it less significant than some recent articles make it seem? Join us as we analyze the data and determine how COVID-19 has really impacted the Bay Area housing market.
