The housing market is facing a tremendous inventory shortage. While new listings are almost 30% lower than last year, home showing requests surpassed 2019 last week.
As a result, the listing inventory has dropped below 3,000 active listings for the 10-county area covered by the Columbus MLS.
I understand that you may be concerned about your health and safety with everything that’s been going on over the past 2 months
If this is the only reason holding you back from listing your home, allow me to describe our (almost) touch free home sale strategy.
1. Virtual Listing Consultation
During this FREE 15 to 30-minute online consultation via zoom I will address all your concerns, explain how we keep you safe during the sale of your home and follow all government rules. I will answer the most-asked questions I am getting today, including:
- How much is my home worth in this market?
- How do you sell homes safely during Covid?
- How’s the mortgage market right now?
2. Electronic Documents
You will sign all listing documents, purchase offers, and most closing documents online, on your phone or digital device, to avoid personal contact.
3. Digital Marketing & Virtual Tours
When our professional photographer takes pictures, you can leave your home. We will also capture 3D scans to create a virtual model of your home. Anyone entering your home will wear protective gear if required.
4. Live Showings & No Open Houses
Potential buyers will attend virtual open houses, and only serious buyers will be able to attend in-person showings. Safety procedures will be posted in the showing instructions. During live showings we will ask potential buyers not to touch anything and have the showing Realtor wear gloves.
5. Inspection & Appraisal
The appraiser will enter the home alone, in protective gear. The inspector will enter the home alone for assessment, and will discuss details entirely over the phone.
6. The Closing
You can sign the closing documents at our office or at the title company. Either place is sanitized before and after meetings and staff will wear face masks. The buyers will close separately to avoid contact.
