In general, I would say the Virus pandemic has driven the Real Estate market into a state of hibernation. Buyers still need to buy but were cautious about going out.

In United States real estate business, “net lease” is a term used for an arrangement in which the tenant or lessee is responsible for paying, in addition to base rent, some or all of the expenses related to real-estate ownership. These expenses, often called the “three nets”, are property taxes, insurance, and maintenance.  Because the rent collected under a net lease is net of expenses, it tends to be lower than rent charged under a gross lease. Net lease types include single net, double net, and triple net leases, with the term “net lease” often being used as a shorthand expression for any of these arrangements. A triple net lease (i.e., one that is net of all three of the major expense categories) is often abbreviated as “NNN lease”, but is still pronounced as “triple net lease”.
