During the current global pandemic, the lives of families, couples and individuals continue to evolve every day. Whether you’ve had a baby, had a family member move in with you due to layoffs or you are in need of downsizing and a lower mortgage payment. Whatever your life may now look like now and your current housing needs, listing your home is still being made possible. Technology and recent health guidelines have allowed real estate companies to safely and effectively conduct business. Agents who continue to follow the safety guidelines set by the National Association of Realtors and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have found great success in assisting their clients.
Not surprisingly, studies have shown there is in fact a current decline in buyer interest, however, there are still buyers in the market. The only attention you need is the interest of one buyer, the right buyer for your home.
Due to the current “Stay at Home” orders, online traffic is spiking. More and more consumers are partaking in online shopping, including searching for homes. Buyers are becoming very active and are pleased to learn the virtual abilities of the home buying process. Here is what you need to know to get started.
Competition Is at an All Time Low
Now is the time to list your home! Due to the COVID-19 pandemic fear, many sellers are taking their homes off the market. With less listings on the market, this puts your home at the top of the list, right in front of active buyers. Waiting too long to list your home may put your chances of selling in jeopardy as the competition will rise in the upcoming Summer months.
