Here’s what the new normal looks like for homebuyers.

COVID-19 clearly hasn’t gone anywhere, so how are we continuing to help buyers get into new homes safely? 

The first step that we advise is to limit the number of people in your group when you’re out searching for homes. For families, the easiest way to do this is to find a babysitter for the kids, or have another family member watch them while you tour homes. 

Common sense is our greatest weapon in times of uncertainty. Avoid touching anything while you tour a home. Most sellers and seller’s agents are preparing their homes for showings such that you don’t have to even lift a finger for anything—lights will already be flipped on, and doors already opened. The adage of ‘look, but don’t touch’ has become more important than ever now. 

Inside of the home, we’ll still be practicing social distancing, using hand sanitizer upon entry and exit, and wearing masks. We feel its best to err on the side of caution and to mitigate risks whenever possible for our clients.

“Common sense is our greatest weapon in times of uncertainty.”

The market is moving very fast, and there are a lot of buyers out there; it’s important to act quickly to compete, but it’s twice as important to act safely and smartly. 

If you have questions about what we discussed in this video, or if you’re interested in buying or selling a home soon, reach out to us by phone or email anytime. We’re here to be a resource for you, and we look forward to hearing from you.
