Selling During Covid-19
WOW! These are definitely unprecedented times in the world. I truly hope you and your family are healthy and coping with these strange times.
Of course these changes have also had an effect on the Real Estate market locally in London as well, Though not nearly as much as I would have anticipated.
Last week London and St. Thomas association of Realtors (LSTAR) saw 123 New Listings, 72 Sales, and 40 properties go under contract! Now this is a lower number than we would anticipate for a regular spring market...but again, these are unprecedented times.
How do you sell in this market?
This is a question we hear quite frequently - and MOST agents have adapted to use safe social distancing practices. If you need to sell, ensure you use one of these agents and keep yourself and your family safe!
Some of the adaptations include - virtual meetings via zoom or similar platform, virtual showings via FaceTime or a video via the seller, virtual/electronic documentation, and specific clauses reducing the number of people, if any, who physically enter the home.
In these times it is essential to use these safety precautions.
If you have further questions on how to safely get your home sold, or if now would be a good time to sell reach out and I'll be happy to give you the information you need to make an informed decision
