You might think that with a shelter in place order for Ohio that there wouldn't be much action in the real estate sector.
And in some cases, that's probably true. Homes that have been on the market for some time with a challenging characteristic or price are seeing a slowdown.
But homes new to the market? There's still a pent up demand for the new and different, and buyers are waiting and watching, and if that new home on the market fills a need, you can expect visitors.
There's no overlapping showings allowed in our market right now, but a home can still have plenty of activity.
Today we visited a home with our buyers for a less than 24 hours on the market home. the home has some features that appeal to many first time buyers. A good price, over an acre lot, a detached garage, things that make up for the house itself not being all that large.
On the table were instructions for showing the home: hand sanitizer, gloves, etc.
Also on the table were the cards from three other agents who had already toured the home with their buyers. We knew there was another showing scheduled after us. Not bad at all for a home WAY out in the country.
The net result for the sellers? At least two offers for the sellers to consider.
So if you think COVID-19 is stopping home buyers, it's not. They're still cautious, but they also want a new home.
