The Coronavirus is having a mixed impact on the housing market. It may be decreasing buyer traffic, yet it’s also not deterring some home buyers and sellers from taking advantage of the lowest mortgage rates in history. To help keep my buyers and sellers healthy during this unprecedented pandemic, I have adjusted and added some procedures when showing homes for sale:
-All of my open houses have been suspended. For now I will only doing private showings of homes to one person (or couple).
-At this time, while I am only doing private showings, I will ask buyers to meet me at each home instead of driving with them.
-I will do my best to arrive before each showing to open doors and windows to minimize door knob touching and allow fresh air inside. I will also sanitize door knobs, counters and other high traffic touch areas before and after each showing.
-Additionally, I will have hand sanitizer and gloves, or ask clients to place their hands in their pockets as they tour the home.
-I will also be using video chats for virtual tours and walkthroughs so my clients can social distance themselves by staying at home in quarantines/self-isolation, while still allowing them to see the homes.
