Local Market Insights | City of Tucson | March 2020

Covid-19 has had a substantial effect on markets across the county. The stock market has begun to recover towards the end of the month, but according to the Tucson Association of Realtors, lenders have begun tightening their criteria for lending and it has caused many buyers to become unqualified for their loans.

This is 4x the higher than the previous record for number of initial jobless claims filed in one week. With all that is going on, our local home prices are staying strong as we end March.
