Should I Sell My House During Covid?

Should I Sell My House During Covid?

Many people in Philadelphia and New Jersey are choosing to sell their homes during covid quarantine – and there are many people buying houses as well. The choice is ultimately up to you. Here are some things to consider.

Am I OK With People Visiting My Home? 

It turns out that this is not as big of a deal as you think. Some buyers may not need to see the inside of the house to make a good offer. That’s why if you have the ability to take good photos, it is very valuable to a buyer, especially to a buyer like Property Buyer Connect. However, real estate is still a people business and a home is a physical asset, so it is nice to be able to go visually inspect it. Things like foundational issues or potential water issues can be very costly fixes and may not show up in photos. So you will have to let some people in your home to see it. However, you can choose to step outside, or stay in one bedroom, or simply just mask up and keep your distance. 

Where Will I Go If I Sell My House? 

If you sell your house in the Philadelphia or New Jersey, where are you going to move to? How is the housing market there? It may be easier or much harder to find a home, depending on the market. You will want to make sure that you have an agent or someone on the ground helping you find your new home. We at Property Buyer Connect can link you to someone, of course.

What Will Happen To House Pricing Once Covid is Over?

There is no way to fully tell this, so it shouldn’t really be given much though. If you are looking to sell your South Jersey home, now is as good a time as any.
