Yes, you should buy during the Covid-19 pandemic. Jake and his wife are able to qualify for their mortgage because they have a great track record for paying their bills on time, saving money, and living below their means. Jake and his wife are buying in a market and price range that is the most competitive. Pre-pandemic, they were competing with 8 or more other buyers and investors. Because of this pandemic they were able to find a house that met their family’s needs—there were only three buyers vying to be accepted by the seller and Jake won. Jake won because they had great credit and a great real estate agent who knows how to win.
