House Hunting From a Safe Social Distance
As our nation deals with the threat of COVID-19, you can still take advantage of all-time low-interest rates while doing much of the home buying process from a safe social distance or even the comfort of your home.
Online home searches have been around for a while, but tech-savvy Realtors are adapting to the new normal by offering their clients innovative ways to buy a home safely, from practically anywhere. Here's how we can help when it comes to buying a home during the Coronavirus pandemic.
Staying home? Many MLS listings already include video tours with property photos. However, these videos often miss features that may be important to you.
If you want to see every detail, ask for a live virtual tour of your favorite property. We're happy to preview homes you are interested in by offering a live virtual tour using Facetime, Zoom, or WhatsApp, among others, to tour a home room by room, without you physically stepping onto the property. You can ask questions at any time during the live video tour. Leveraging virtual tours enable you to narrow down your house choices, selecting what's worth an in-person visit.
Email Notes, Seller Disclosures, and More
Often, there are seller disclosures and notes associated with a listing that are not available to consumers. We can email you details about your top listings as well as local information about schools, neighborhoods, and market reports.
When it comes time for an in-person visit, we can set up a private showing subject to local regulations and procedures. We ensure that the property is ready to show, and no other potential buyers are viewing the home at the same time.
Still a Great Time to Buy
Right now, it feels like things keep changing from one minute to the next. That makes it hard to predict what will happen with real estate tomorrow, and even harder to know what might happen a year from now. But with interest rates at an all-time low and fewer competing buyers, it is a great time to buy! And with today's technology, much of the process can be done from your home.
