Headlines like we have seen over the past week tend to give some buyers pause, but those that are already in the process and looking keep going. So the short answer is yes, but maybe a little slower.

As Brent mentioned, rates are incredible low and some people are buying with this in mind.

Yes buyers and sellers are out there. Working a little harder and networking a bit differently to find them but definitely still there. Properties that sell are the ones that are priced correctly for the market.

Yes, agents are still selling.

Regardless of the economy, some people still need to sell, and some people still need (choose) to buy. And those people are still buying and selling.

"Elective" buying and seller has slowed down dramatically. But there will always be a core of people who have to buy and sell.

The answer is that, yes, properties are selling, but only properties that are priced for our current market. We have had 3 to 4 years, depending on the area of the country, of falling prices and the sellers that are willing to accept this and price appropriately are able to sell. Top-rate professional photography and web representation is a must as well over 90% of all home searches today start on the internet. If your home is not attractive on the internet, people will not come see it as there is just too much inventory to choose from.

I am not an agent but a lender. Since rates have never been lower I can't imagine they aren't busy.
It's not the same as buyers and sellers can't move at the pace of a refinance but this will if the rates stay low spur at least a temporary frenzy of activity. Just my opinion of course.
