Can I buy or sell a home during the Coronavirus quarantine period?

Can I buy or sell a home during the Coronavirus quarantine period? Absolutely! There are a few things to think about when house shopping during this time, for instance:

Your Realtor can Facetime or Skype with you during a showing. With technology, you can see a home pretty thoroughly with a cell phone. With many modern MLS photo options, Realtors are able to upload so many pictures to show off their listings it's almost like being there. With the additional technologies, you can see things live, ask questions, have areas of special interest displayed beyond the online photos. A few years ago, I sold three houses and the buyers and one seller never came to my community. It's a great time to be in this business. Make sure you have permission to use live video if the home is inhabited.

Good advice, Mike. It can be done safely.  And we have also sold homes via videos and photos.  We are finding a real drop in showings and showing requests in our market over the past week.  We are using the time to focus on marketing and we have two listings prepped to go live when the sellers decide it's time. This too shall pass. D

Great suggestions, Mike!  It can be accomplished.  Our methods for facilitating listings and sale may be altered somewhat.  I suspect what we learn through these methods will change many things we do in the future.

Morning Mike.

I've only sold one home by using a live video, while the new owners looked on. It was one smooth sale.
