As the coronavirus pandemic upends parts of everyday life, the Boston condo for sale market could be the next area to experience a shakeup.

Typically, spring is a peak time for Boston real estate hunters. But uncertainty about the disease has some people on edge about buying or selling, according to realtor.com.

“This was shaping up to be a fairly competitive home-buying season, and that may not be the case,” said Danielle Hale, chief economist at the home website. “It doesn’t mean that we won’t still see sales. But I would expect fewer crowds at open houses. I would expect more shopping online.”

 “Everything will be okay in the end. If it’s not okay, it’s not the end.”
