The New Rules of Real Estate Amidst a Global Pandemic & How to Decide to Whether to Make a Move or Not & When

By in Uncategorized with 0 Comments

Apologies for the long title, I’ve always wanted to do that!

Although the real estate market remains incredibly strong, the rules for how it runs have drastically changed. Here’s a quick rundown of what you can expect when viewing a home.

It is encouraged to wear gloves and mask

Only 1 buyer in house at a time

Must maintain at least 6 feet distance always

No Open Houses

Showings cannot be double booked

If you are selling a home, it is up to you and your level of comfort in regards to allowing showings and any rules surrounding those showings. It is encouraged that all interior doors be left open and all lights on so doorknobs and light switches don’t have to be touched. You are also encouraged to sanitize the home upon return.

If you’re on the fence about selling your home during this time, there is a very simple one-question test to assist the decision making process.

If Coronavirus was not happening, would I be listing my home?

If so, understand the rules outlined above may make the process a bit more difficult than usual. Also, recognize that this may literally be the best time to sell in the history of mankind! Prices in our local service area have NEVER been HIGHER and appear to be cresting. The buyers that are still active are SERIOUS and have underlying motivations that make owning a home essential and necessary.

Don’t let the doom and gloom narrative force you into missing out! If you’re looking for local real estate guidance in the midst of a pandemic, you know who to call – Ghostbusters….I mean, me. Call me! 🙂
