The outbreak of COVID-19 has sadly changed the way we do most stuff, real estate as well. While it might not be the best time to sell a home, it’s not the wrong time either. Demand for homes is up, and many interested buyers are jumping at the chance to find their dream home with mortgage rates near all-time lows. Here are a few tips for selling your home safely during a pandemic.
Digital Tours may be offered. A virtual tour could consist of anything from a simple live walkthrough with an agent to a complete 3D filmed home tour. Without physically walking inside, these in-person walkthrough alternatives allow a prospective buyer to feel what a house is like. For more detail on how to set up virtual tours of your home, ask your realtor.
Take extra precautions for meetings and face-to-face showings.
While getting virtual choices is fantastic, depending on your particular circumstance, they aren’t always going to be the best choice for you. Be sure to sanitize before and particularly after when welcoming individuals into your home. The National Association of Realtors provides advice on what to do before, during, and after in-person presentations in their Coronavirus guide for Realtors.
