I think we can all agree that this has been a very strange year so far, and certainly nothing like any of us could have imagined. The normal spring flurry of home buying and selling was a complete non-starter thanks to COVID-19. The good news is that as things start to slowly open up again, it appears that opportunity is knocking for those who are serious about selling their home.
It’s a bit of a “perfect storm” of low inventory, near historically low interest rates, tightened regulations for both lending, and also the very process of showing a home, all resulting in very well-qualified and serious buyers. There are, of course, a number of things over and above the normal considerations to think about before deciding to sell during this time, not the least of which is the health and safety of you and your family.
Assuming that none of your family are considered high-risk and you deem it safe to proceed, there are a number of precautions you can take to help reduce the risks from strangers coming into your home. You should discuss the necessary steps, and any concerns you may have, with your Realtor® prior to any showings. A few items to get your list started may include requesting that visitors wear masks at all times while inside your home, that they touch no surfaces, and use hand sanitizer and disposable gloves before entering. Of course, this also means that you’ll need to be sure that all lights are turned on, and that you open all doors and cupboards, so they don’t have to. Definitely consult with your Realtor® to make sure that current showing guidelines are being followed.
