Almost 2 million U.S. renters that currently can’t comfortably afford to buy an entry-level home in their current metro area could potentially afford the nation’s typical starter home if they took advantage of increased telework options and moved to a less-expensive locale.

Those households were then assigned a probability of being able to telecommute based on income, the worker’s industry and occupation.

Caution, prudence, and hard work remain the operative themes for the remainder of 2020. REALTORS® Reported Encouraging Business Results Last Week: The percentage of REALTORS® who saw an improvement in their business last week was up with 11.8% more doing a listing appointment last week, 20% more actually listing a property on the MLS, and 10.7% more respondents closing a transaction last week.

“The sight of Lake Tahoe’s blue water shimmering in the sun has been known to stop onlookers in their tracks, staring in amazement at the natural spectacle splayed out before them.

Tahoe photographers are well aware of this opportunity, and will forgo sleep and warm fingers to capture the stunning display. Lucky for us.” Click here to finish reading and see more images.
