The Covid-19 crisis has generated an economic impact in society. Within this context of health crisis and state of alarm, the paralysis of the real estate market is a fact, also in the luxury segment in Barcelona, which is experiencing something never seen before.
Technology has become the great ally of work environments and its use has achieved the continuity of the buying and selling processes. Although the activity of luxury real estate has decreased in recent weeks, agents use technology to continue working and providing an excellent service to each of their clients.
Today, on the blog of BARNES Barcelona , we showcase how the current situation of the luxury real estate market is and which are the forecasts for the future of the sector.
An exceptional situation
The current situation is exceptional. The Barnes Barcelona offices are closed, although with a continuity plan that includes permanent telephone reception and requests, within the possibilities that technology allows, due to the sanitary precautions taken.
Follow-ups on purchases and sales are carried out remotely, through electronic signatures and representatives of sellers and buyers who can’t be present. Although activity has decreased a 60% around, wasn’t completely paralyzed and continues offering solutions for customers.
It’s still difficult to know how this crisis is going to evolve, but investors will probably seek to protect their wealth by fixing their interest in safe securities, such as luxury real estate or gold.
