Selling Your Home During Covid-19

Selling your home can be stressful at the best of times, but during these last few challenging months, homeowners are also concerned about potential health risks. The good news is that over these recent times, we have successfully mastered both the online and in-person aspects of selling your home safely.

As in the past, the first thing a seller needs to know is what their house is worth in today’s market. The easiest and fasted way to do this is by completing a Comparative Market Analysis (CMA). Through this process your home will be compared to other similar homes in your area giving you a sound starting point to help you determine a fair selling price. By understanding what comparable homes are selling for, we are able to present and sell your home to qualified home buyers at the best price and in the shortest amount of time.

Once you have listed your home with us, we will immediately employ a proven set of marketing strategies such as:

  • Multiple Listing Service (MLS) – This database allows home buyers and other agents to view your home
  • MLS books – Your home will be included in all MLS books
  • Magazines/Newspapers – Direct mailings will be sent to potential home buyers as well as being placed in our regular ads in newspapers and magazines
  • Online Marketing – Viewing of your home and access to its information is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We are then able to quickly respond to all prospective home buyers about any questions they may have
  • Direct e-mail Marketing – We conduct an ‘Personal Home Search’ allowing us to send personal e-mails to prospective buyers within our database. E-mails will also be sent to future prospective buyers

One of the initial challenges we faced in selling a home during Covid-19 was the ‘Open-House’ since it was one our most important and direct methods of showing a home to both prospective buyers and other real estate agents. We have managed to successfully hone our technological skills by providing ‘virtual’ open houses. This process allows potential buyers to take a virtual tour and ask any questions they may have about specific aspects of your home. Once a virtual tour is completed, potential buyers can speak directly with us regarding a possible in-home viewing to get more detailed information.   

We understand that viewing a home in person is still essential for anyone interested in making a purchase. Therefore, we are happy to arrange such a viewing to all serious and qualified buyers. All safety precautions and health recommendations are adhered to so that both the potential buyer’s as well as the homeowner’s protection and safety are ensured.

The real estate market has come a long way in a short time, and we have successfully overcome the challenges that Covid-19 has presented us with. Anyone either wishing to, or needing to, sell their home in today’s market can rest assured that we have taken every precaution to keep all parties safe. We take great pride in providing all our clients with professional and responsible marketing strategies to help you sell your home in a stress-free environment and as quickly as possible.
