Today’s real estate trends reflect the reality that, after months of quarantine, Americans who have not been economically impacted by the pandemic are looking at their homes and realizing that they want something bigger and better. “Everybody that ever wanted to do anything is doing it now,” says Stacey Oestreich, a saleswoman for Douglas Elliman in Westchester County, New York. “There has always been the holdback, but now they’re doing it. If they wanted to move out of state, they’re doing it. If they always wanted Mom to come live with them, they’re doing it.”
