Coronavirus Precautions for Selling Your Home

Coronavirus Precautions for Selling Your Home

Selling a home used to be a social activity. You listed your home on the MLS, invited people, and used word-of-mouth marketing to gain exposure. It isn’t possible to do the same given the circumstances going on. Open house events, if even allowed, shouldn’t be considered. You cannot have strangers in your home while risking your life and the life of others.

It’s time to change your strategy and see how you can still sell your home. If you want to sell your home, you need to employ a different approach.

Market Timing Is Not Favorable

The situation is improving (in some areas), and the current summer season may bring us closer to our real estate goals. People are interested in buying properties, and sellers now want to put their plans into action. If you’re getting a fair price for your home, then the summer season seems like the right time for selling your property. As we move further into this year, we might observe another wave of Covid-19, harsh cold weather, and an unpredictable political situation. Market conditions are not favorable right now and they won’t be in your favor for some time. Instead of focusing on market conditions, focus on the price you can get for your house with the least amount of work.

Sell Using a Video Tour

We buy houses, and we’re still buying during Covid-19. One thing that has changed is that we don’t do personal visits. A walkthrough is not possible. Instead, we’re using technology to our advantage. You can show us how your home looks. You can send us a virtual tour or share pictures with us. We need to know about the condition of your home so we can make you the fairest possible cash price offer. Once you accept the offer, we can buy your home on your timeline. All this time, you can avoid meeting strangers and uncomfortable showings. You’ll get a guaranteed cash offer from us, and we’ll close on a day of your choice.

Information Rich Listings

More than ever before, we need the correct information delivered at the right time. We’re in the lockdown, but people are still searching for properties. Families were planning for their new residence, and they do want to buy a house. It’s your chance to help the buyer by providing good pictures and a thorough property description.

Follow the Safety Measures

When selling in the retail market, you may have buyers requesting a visit. You’ll need to accommodate that request, but make sure to comply with local regulations. Don’t allow more than 3-4 people inside, including your agent, if you’re seeking representation. Children and older people shouldn’t be allowed for their safety. Wear the mask, safety gloves, and ensure that everyone does the same before entering your home. Before the visit, open all doors, closets, and cabinets. Turn on all the lights and make it easier for the buyer to see your home. Prospective buyers want to explore the house, but minimal physical contact should be maintained. Request the buyers to avoid touching surfaces, and disinfect the area, and doorknobs after the visit is over.

You can avoid the hassle by selling your house fast for a cash price. Even if you’re not sure, you can request a no-obligation cash offer and see how much you can get for your home.
