The snow is gorgeous, no doubt! But it does play havoc with coordinating real estate activities.
Just like all homes are not alike, the same holds for buyers, sellers, and inspections.
When you get a ratified contract, there are still deadlines to meet, taking from a week or two, depending on the terms.
And coordinating all the inspections depends on the scheduler's efficiency, the availability of the various contractors, the buyers, the seller's time, and the weather in a month like February.
Even when carefully scheduled, a winter storm can cancel one or more of the inspections.
It's tough to inspect a roof with snow or ice adequately.
Rescheduling is not always easy. Everyone is busy, and many are already working to capacity.
So we have multiple challenges. Especially older and very unique houses, there may be a need for more specialized services.
During this stressful time, it’s crucial to stay in close contact with your clients. Delays or uncertainties are challenging even for the most organized, coordinating with various folks involved. You should be able to rely on the expertise and experience of your professionals.
This stress holds whether you are a first-time buyer or a first-time seller. Some of my sellers have been in their homes for decades.
Trying to schedule a moving company, figure out what to pack, when to pack, or whether to pack.
The snow is pretty, but it does play havoc with real estate activities.
