Selling and buying homes during the Covid-19 outbreak / Coming Soon Status Change


Although showing activity has decreased, buyers are looking forward to taking advantage of low interest rates and are still actively searching for homes.

Due to the recent new governmental restrictions regarding “social distancing”, we are taking proactive steps to ensure the safety of our sellers and buyers.

This includes:

  1. Not allowing any overlapping showings of your home so that only the agent and buyer are in the home during the showing.
  2. Instructing agents that when showing properties to their clients only the agent should be opening the front door and turning on light switches.
  3. Instructing agents to ask their clients to refrain from touching any surface in your home.
  4. Requesting that agents wipe down with disinfectant wipes any door knobs or light switches that they touch.

We want to reiterate that the safety of our clients, buyers, and sellers, our staff and our local community is our top priority and look forward to helping you with all your real estate needs.

COMING SOON STATUS CHANGE:  If you are delaying the listing of your home due to the Covid-19 outbreak you may want to consider listing as “Coming Soon”. The MLS board recently approved an extension of the “Coming Soon” rule to 60 days from 21 days. Now you can get pre-market exposure by listing your home as “Coming Soon” so that potential buyer’s are aware that your home will be available for showings at a future date.
