No one can deny that these last several months have been anything short of normal. If it were possible to never hear the phrase, “unprecedented times” ever again would be fantastic. I think it’s safe to say that most of us were happy living in the precedented times. However, it’s unclear if and when things will ever get back to pre-COVID-19 times. One thing is for certain, life goes on and we must find a way to move forward. This is evident in how hot the housing market is right now. Most areas are experiencing a shortage of housing inventory making this very much a seller’s market.
Some things may have changed during the listing and selling process, but nothing that can’t be tackled. Besides those fantastic interest rates, another positive aspect that has emerged in real estate is the use of social media and live videos. Many agents show properties via Facebook Live, IGTV, or FaceTime. If a potential buyer wants to see a home in person, homeowners are asking that masks be worn and hands sanitized as people enter their homes. Don’t feel bad for asking this of a buyer and real estate agents, it is your personal choice when inviting a stranger into your home.
Although there is a pandemic going on, don’t let that hold you back on buying or selling your home. Those interest rates are.. ehem… ”unprecedented.” Sorry for the use of the word, but this time it’s good! Thinking of buying or selling?
