As you can imagine, a lot of people looking to buy a new home have brought up putting their search on hold until the COVID-19 virus has passed or is at least under control. For some people that’s totally fine to do. If they have no absolute need to buy a house and can wait it out until they feel more comfortable, they should just wait it out.
It’s just not that cut and dry for a lot of buyers, though. Life can’t be put on hold entirely — especially since we don’t really know how long “waiting it out” will be. So for a lot of buyers, the question has become how should we proceed?
I’m still selling houses…just differently. Here’s what I’ve been doing so my clients and I can lower the risk of exposure, and do our part to “flatten the curve” as they say…
Of course, if you want to hold off, by all means do so! There will be houses to buy whenever this all settles down.
However, if you’re in a position where you either need to find a new home for whatever reason, or are just looking to take advantage of low interest rates and lower buyer activity in the market, just know I’m going to do everything I can to keep us all safe and healthy while continuing to live as normally as possible.
Either way, hang in there! This too shall pass!
