Buying or Selling During A Pandemic

While it may only be temporary, the COVID-19 pandemic is touching everyone’s life in one way or another.  If you are in the market to buy or sell your home, this can be an alarmiing time. With calls for social distancing and many businesses temporarily closing their doors, there is a great deal of uncertainty when it comes to real estate. If you are trying to buy or sell right now, here are some tips to help you make it through!

 

 

GO DIGITAL

 

Instead of opting for an open house, see if you can do a guided tour via Facetime or video marketing.

 

SANITIZE

 

If you are still allowing tours of your home or attempting to tour homes, make sure you are taking all sanitary precautions. Offer hand soap for your home tour and ensure you are sanitizing all surfaces a potential buyer may come into contact with, such as doorknobs and counter tops. If you are touring a home, make sure you maintain social distancing practices with the agent and avoid touching anything you do not need to.

 

SCHEDULE PRIVATE SHOWINGS 

Instead of having an open house, consider having only scheduled showings for your home or only participating in scheduled viewings if you are looking to buy.

 

STAY CALM, STAY SAFE

 

While there are still many options to buy and sell right now, stay calm and trust your agent. This is their specialty and they know the best course of action during this time. If they can offer digital options, they will let you know.
