How To Sell Your House While Social Distancing
Selling a house during COVID-19 is a challenge. The market is more competitive right now because the prices are falling more and more every day, and there are new rules and policies to follow to sell your house. However, there’s still an opportunity for you to sell your home effectively and without exposing yourself during this global pandemic.
The Risk of Real Estate Agents
When a homeowner decides he or she wants to sell her or his house, they usually sell with a real estate agent. However, with the current circumstances, you have to evaluate carefully if this is the best for you, your needs, and your health.
Selling your house with a real estate agent can be risky during COVID-19. There’s a lot of contact with strangers in your home, from the realtor to visitors to repairmen. Exposing yourself to so many strangers goes against all the recommendations made by the CDC. Also, you’ll spend a lot of time and money to complete the sale.
Home Buyers: A Safer Choice
Selling your house to a home buying company presents less of a risk of infection. Home buying companies buy your home directly from you in a quick process that takes less than two weeks, and doesn’t require extended contact.
Here’s why home buyers are a safer choice:
- You can easily set up the sale by making a phone call to describe your home, and then sending pictures and video.
- With a homebuyer, the risk is minimum since contact is only with one person.
- It’s a fast process in which you’ll only meet twice with the buyer: once for a brief inspection and then to get paid.
- You avoid having buyers or repairmen in your house at all.
