Should I still Buy or Sell a home despite the Corona Virus?

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Godzyk Real Estate Services NH License 033394

One of the most asked questions from would be Home Sellers is, "Should I still list my home For Sale?" The answer is not as easy as yes and no. I have been talking to each Buyer or Seller individually. Many have planned on a spring purchase or sale awaiting winter to end. Many are comfortable listing their homes and are rewarded with a quick sale. Many buyers do not want to miss a new listing that could be their chance.

 

I find having conversations with would be Buyers and Sellers, letting them know the pros, the cons and answering their concerns. There are protections and pre-cautions we can take. The bottom line is, for those still concerned, waiting is the best option for them. For others, they may need to sell. They may have a home they want to buy but can not without selling their home. There are relocation buyers. There are older folks needing homes on one floor. I have heard from those in divorce and sadly one whose parent passed away who has to sell right away. 

 

 

In the end, buyers are still buying. The decrease in interest rates bolstered buyers to up their search, as they know rates may go back up when the crisis passes.

 

THE BOTTOM LINE is if you or someone in your family is sick. Everyone in that house should stay home. That means no showings on home if someone is sick. It also means buyers who are sick should wait until they are well to look again. 

  

The summary would be to know how important it is important that every Buyer or Seller should not just choose any agent, choose the BEST agent for the job. Having an agent that works for you is a must. Support your local businesses. 

 

My philosophy is simple, provide more personal and professional service to guide my clients through each step of the buying or selling process. All Agents are not created equal and every buyer or seller should take the time to hire the BEST not just the biggest. Those that hire me, find a dedication like no other.

As you say, it is everyone's own decision, and they need to consider their own positions and beliefs. But the market is hot and homes are moving right now.

Scott Godzyk - Unfortunately, we are seeing the likes of something we never saw before. The way I see it, there are no clear cut answers. But there are potential risks for every type of decision and/or senario.

That is great Mimi Foster  , I was similar in 3 this week and 2 next week. My first 2 went on hold and happily just got the call from #3 that wants to list now.

That is excellent to hear Barbara Todaro  . It was an un-nerving day, a Monday i would normally get 40-50 plus inquiries and I had only 5. But 2 of the 5 are ready to buy today and have new appointments to go look.  #3 wants me to list their home today. #4 is ready to list but start showings next week. #5 was a referral from #3 who was so happy i spent so much time answering questions, she wants to list too. So the numbers were low, but those who called or emailed are ready to act now.

The market is hot Nick Vandekar, 610-203-4543 . Like i tell all those calling or email, they have to do what is right for them. I think it is more soothing allowing them to ask questions and give them answers and choices.

Buyers need to buy when they need and want to buy.  One thing for certain, interest rates are very attractive now.
