But several times, Realtor Garrett Elwood’s clients offered “well over” the asking price, only to be rejected.

“We started to ask what happened,” said Elwood, who works with clients in Philadelphia and the Main Line for The How Group at Compass Real Estate. “And on a couple different occasions, an agent has told me, ‘Your offer was higher, but the other buyer waived inspections.’”

Before this year, that was something he remembers happening only one time, back in 2016. It used to be that people who skipped inspections were cash buyers and investors who planned to gut a property. Now, in the region’s decidedly seller’s market, real estate

“As Oklahoma City weathers the COVID-19 crisis along with the state, nation, and world, there are significant changes underway in how people live, work, and play. The situation creates opportunities and challenges in commercial real estate. Despite an economic nosedive in March and April, the economy recovered in May and June as restrictions lifted and businesses reopened. Unfortunately, many cities and states have had to reimpose restrictive measures to curb the spread of the virus.
