Update On The Effect Of COVID-19 Upon Real Estate
We have seen an increase in activity this week with both showings and new contracts. As more buyers resume their housing search, we are beginning to experience an even greater shortage of listing inventory.
If you are still searching for a home and are nervous about COVID-19, check out our recent blog post to learn about how we are adjusting our business practices to follow CDC recommendations. Many of our clients are turning to technology in order to stay safe. We are offering clients free online access to all of the local listing inventory, virtual showings, and electronic signatures for signing documents. You only really need to view one house in person, the one you purchase.
If you have further questions about buying and selling during this unique time, give us a call or send us a message.
