Watch Byron Lazine and Nicole White give a real estate agent’s perspective on industry-related topics. This week, they’re turning their attention to two changes brought on by the recent coronavirus crisis

Homeowners who can’t make their monthly payments due to today’s hardships, are now getting a bit of relief with the ability to delay those mortgage payments. Nicole and Byron discuss what this could mean to borrowers and the economy as well as who should be taking advantage. 

In other news, iBuying giants — such as Redfin, Opendoor, Zillow — are slamming the breaks on the instant-offer iBuying system. Nicole and Byron share their thoughts on the matter, while also giving advice to agents who want to be proactive in their communities.
