SELLING A HOUSE DURING THE CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC: WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW
3 SMART STEPS FOR SELLING A HOME DURING THE TIME OF CORONAVIRUS
We’re living in unusual times, that’s for sure. But, with the coronavirus pandemic touching every aspect of our lives, not much else is certain. One other thing you can be sure of is that there are many effective ways to sell your home in this environment when you have the right plan—and the right team—on your side.
1| GO VIRTUAL
With Wisconsin maintaining Governor Evers’ ‘Safer at Home’ policy until at least late May, it’s a great idea to minimize contact with buyers and your agent. Try video chatting with your realtor and ask them about virtual open houses and tours. Opt for paperless transactions in all your dealings with buyers and your realtor. (Our team is fully equipped to help you with all that, by the way!)
2| THINK LIKE A PRO PHOTOGRAPHER (AND VIDEOGRAPHER!)
With your home selling process moving entirely online, your home’s digital presence is more important than ever. Make sure your home is spotless, minimally decorated, well-lit, and ready to photograph. Ask your realtor for tips on creating the most photogenic environment possible.
3| TRY TO BE PATIENT
Realtor suggests that home sales will likely take longer than usual, which is understandable in our current climate.
If you’re unsure about whether you should even consider selling your home curing the coronavirus pandemic, our team has decades of experience and would be happy to chat with you—no strings attached. Call us at (608) 957-2683 or contact us via our website!
Please note that real estate companies, along with banks, lenders, title companies, and brokerages are considered essential services by Governor Evers’ ‘Safer at Home’ order. We’re open and ready to help you make your contact-free home selling process feel connected and seamless.
