Can You Sell Your Home During Covid-19?

As we move into the second month of quarantining during the Covid-19 pandemic, many of us are looking for ways to safely get back to normal life. People have had to put big life events on hold during this time. Normal events such as weddings, vacations, and even game nights between friends have been cancelled or postponed. Many people are unsure about what activities they still can do. The question that we have been receiving the most is, “Can you sell your home during the Covid-19 pandemic?”

Thankfully, yes – you can sell your home during Covid-19! The real estate industry has had to rapidly adapt during this time, just like many other industries. We have been using new technologies, social distancing rules, personal protective equipment, and other measures as precautions. At the end of the day, both real estate investors and home sellers are finding ways to safely do business. Let’s take a look at some of the practices that can help you sell your home during the Covid-19 pandemic.

  1. Virtual tours – Virtual tours have been one of the most utilized technologies for people that want to sell their home during the Covid-19 pandemic. Realtors have been using 3D scans that allow potential buyers to virtually walk through a home, much like you would see on a Google Street view. These scans often provide high-resolution 360 degree scans so you can view the home from every possible angle. While this may not be a substitute for an actual walk-through, it can surely help a buyer eliminate some homes from their list. Especially during this time, even reducing your list of potential properties by 25% is very valuable.
  2. Virtual estimates – 3D scanning can be expensive for someone selling their home. However, if you are looking to sell your home, you can utilize Facetime or any video chatting service of your choice. Simply walk through your home while on a video call with us and we can make you a cash offer! Even just sending photos and videos works. Contact us today to set up a free virtual estimate.
  3. Digital signatures – Whenever possible, Property Buyer Connect will use digital documents. This allows us to keep the home selling process quick and efficient while also reducing face to face meetings. Our title companies are working hard to conduct 100% virtual closings. That means you could sign all of your closing documents from the comfort of your home!

While day to day life for all of us has been impacted, you can still sell your home during the Covid-19 pandemic. Property Buyer Connect has continued buy and sell homes thanks to the use of technology. Contact us today to get your cash offer and stay safe everyone!
