Are you waiting until COVID-19 is over to put your home on the market?
Recently, I have spoken with a few potential clients who have stated they are ready to sell, however are going to wait until our pandemic has past. Taking a stance to hold off on listing your home may be the right thing for you, especially if you are up to date on the new precaution that real estate professionals are taking to make sure you and your family remain safe.
An ounce of eduction may be all the incentive you need to move forward. This may also help you get into the game so that you can get your home sold in our current hot market. It is clearly a sellers market.
Take a look at these number for Snohomish County.
Average Price for a home in Snohomish County is $505,000 that is up 4.1% since last June. Days on the market for a home stands at 11. Pending months supply of inventory stands at 1.3 months, that is down 27.8%.
Average Price for a condo in Snohomish County is $360,000 that is up 6.6% since last June. Days on the market for a condo stands at 12. Pending months supply of inventory stands at 1.2 months, that is down 7.7%.
So… now is not the time to wait out the craziness of our times. We the right precautions we can get your home sold.
These are some things we are doing to keep you safe as we market homes and condos.
- Per the governors order we everyone must wear a face covering to show or transact in real estate. This means that real estate brokers may not provide in-person services (including showings, inspections, walk throughs, etc.) to clients who do not wear a face covering.
- We capture a 360 Tour of your home so that buyers can virtually view your home without physically coming out to see the home in person. This helps limit those that are truly serious buyers.
- Every showing or event inside your home is limited to 3 individuals based upon the currently phase we are under. Again, the face coverings are required.
- If a buyer wants to come and tour your home their broker must register the showing through Showing Time on the MLS portal. This allows for a record and also give good advance notice of the showing.
- Every showing requires a 2-hour minimum notice.
- When your home goes on the market we provide a boot sock bin loaded with boot socks for buyers to wear while touring your home.
- We will provide you with a bottle of hand sanitizer for your convenience and piece of mind.
These are a few things we are doing to make sure you and your family stay safe during these times.
We hope you do not miss this hot market for seller right now. With the precautions we put in place, we can sell your home safely and get you on to your next home.
We are always working harder to get your home sold.
