Homeowners are just one of the many segments of the population experiencing some very specific worries related to COVID-19.

Concerns range from insecurities about making mortgage payments, ensuring appropriate precautions to reduce risks to family members and even greater anxiety for those in the process of buying, selling or moving into a new home.

Here are some things to keep in mind:

With current technology, it's easier than ever to market and sell your home remotely using video call tours, virtual open houses and online 3D tours with detailed photos.

For those who elect to forge ahead with a planned purchase or sale, exposure to coronavirus throughout the traditional home selling process is an understandable concern. As stated in many other outlets, the best strategies to minimize this risk and put buyers’ minds at ease include:

·         Thoroughly cleaning surfaces before and after showings.

·         Leaving cabinets and closet doors open, and lights turned on eliminating the need for buyers to touch them.

·         Providing hand sanitizer and shoe covers in the house.

·         Avoiding showings if anyone living in the home is sick.

While no one can foresee the continued impact of the coronavirus on the real estate market, you don't have to feel entirely in the dark. As your local real estate professional, I am committed to the health and safety of the community and pleased to keep you abreast of the changing situation and help you navigate the challenges.

If you're thinking of buying or selling during this volatile period, or if I can provide any type of information or assistance, don't hesitate to give me a call. Stay healthy.
