Real Estate is Still Open
The Real Estate Industry is essential and Realtors are working hard to adapt to the new standards during these unprecedented times.
Like many other industries right now, the Real Estate market is adapting to more nontraditional practices due to the coronavirus pandemic. Agents are taking every precaution to ensure their clients are protected. According to the Ohio Association of Realtors, Sellers now have the option to opt out of physical showings of their property. If they choose not to show their property in person, it can still be seen by buyers through technology available. Virtual tours make it possible to show houses without any physical interaction at all. If the Seller is okay with people still entering their homes, the Realtor accompanying them will be diligent to use all advised social distancing rules.
If you have been considering selling your home, getting your home on the market will give you a distinct advantage. One of the benefits of people staying home is they are online more often. Properties will be advertised and viewed by potential buyers online through home buying sites and social media. Our photographer is still available to take photos of properties.

Getting your house on the market will give you a distinct advantage over those choosing to wait. In our professional opinion, once this pandemic is over, the Real Estate market will be booming.
