Think you can’t sell your home during the pandemic? Think again! These are 5 things you must do when selling your home during COVID-19!
Don’t Let the Pandemic Stop You
Think you have to wait until the pandemic is over before you sell your home? Think again! In fact, selling your home now will put you ahead of the game. Many things have changed about the world around us, but one thing is still certain. People will always need homes to call their own. According to the Florida Realtor’s Association, let’s take a look at 5 things you should if you are preparing to sell your home during the COVID-19 pandemic.
1. Deep Clean and Tie Up Loose Ends
It is important to clean and disinfect your home in its entirety. Leave no stone unturned. This will not only help your home look and smell better, which is appealing to buyers, but it will also ensure the health and safety of anyone who may walk through the door!
2. Virtual Tours
Depending on the comfort level of you and potential buyers, you can ask your Realtor to create a video tour. You can then schedule online open houses and virtual showings. If you feel comfortable, you can hold in-person open houses and showings as well.
3. Negotiate Contracts Online
You can save time and money by utilizing technology such as e-signing programs and video conferencing software to negotiate and sign contracts as well as fill out the necessary paperwork.
4. Be Flexible
Understand that closing dates are subject to change. Be prepared to be flexible and assume that there may be unavoidable delays in the process.
5. Be Patient
People now more than ever have the extra time to look for a new home during this pandemic. However, some sellers will be hesitant to put their homes on the market during this time. This means potentially less competition when it comes to finding a buyer for your home!
