Yes, you can buy or sell

I understand completely that many people believe now is not the time to buy or sell a home. For most people, it’s a project that can wait until life becomes a bit more normal than it is right now. However, if you or someone you know has an unusually urgent need, I can help you manage the process without too much risk or anxiety. Homes can be marketed and sold while minimizing person-to-person interaction that increases the risk of spreading COVID-19. Pre-arranged appointments with hygiene precautions and pre-approved buyers take the place of “come-on-in!” open houses. Extensive photos and video tours can answer most buyers’ questions, and properties can even be sold the way that rental properties are—buyers can send offers conditioned on inspection after the offer has been accepted.

There are even positive advantages to the current state of the market. Competition is low now, among both properties and buyers. Extremely low interest rates mean more buying power for buyers, and therefore a larger group of potential buyers for each house. And, as you can read in this article, there are significant indications that the market will be holding its value in the near term.
