Buying and Selling in the Quarantine

I want to assure you that the safety of my clients is paramount to me.  I’m staying updated on the latest news, state and local mandates, practicing good hand hygiene, and last, but not least—working from home. 

So what can you expect in the coming weeks and possibly months?

As the COVID-19 situation unfolds across the country and containment efforts in our area become more aggressive, I want you to know that our services are seen as ‘essential’ and we are doing what we can to continue to serve everyone who has a desire to buy or sell a home. 

My broker has encouraged us to move to video meetings or phone calls. I will provide gloves, booties and face masks if needed or wanted. Open houses are not to be as they have been in the past. Private showings are changing and  inspections and appraisals are being adapted to the needs of the individuals involved. And finally, whenever possible, I prefer to use electronic signatures for completion of contracts and email for delivery of documents.

If you are currently in the middle of a transaction, don’t allow fear to prevent us from getting you to the next step. Things may just take a little longer than normal. We will all need to continue to be flexible. Your concerns and input are important. Don’t be afraid to share them.
