As part of a larger flood of people rushing to purchase homes in California's Inland Empire, prospective buyers lined up overnight during a record-breaking heatwave in Ontario, CA, for a chance to purchase a home in the ShadeTree development by Landsea Homes, one of many developments in the region. Despite 108 degree temperatures and worries of exposure to the coronavirus, those waiting in line felt the temporary discomfort was worthwhile for the tradeoff. Among other things, they cited being attracted by low mortgage interest rates, the development's amenities, which include a dog park, and the size and design customizations available. As the day went on, a buying frenzy ensued. By mid-afternoon, everyone who waited had either purchased a home or decided to wait for the next phase, if they weren't able to get their first choice(s). Almost immediately, new couples and families began arriving to view the model homes, beginning the next phase of the cycle.
