10 Steps to Buying a Home During Coronavirus

How to buy a home during Coronavirus? Here are 10 steps on how to buy a home and never leave your couch!

  1. Contact one of the ROOM Real Estate Agents. They will help you get connected with a mortgage professional and will send you properties that fit your price range, general criteria and favorite areas.
  2. Tour properties virtually in our Facebook Live Open Houses, by 3D tour or video available on the property.
  3. View property disclosures and inspection reports online.
  4. Do a driveby of the property to see the neighborhood, location and lot layout.
  5. Learn about the details of the buying process, purchase agreement and contingencies during your Buyer Consultation with your agent either over the phone or via Zoom-meeting online.
  6. Make an offer! Review documents and sign offer electronically with Docusign.
  7. Do a walkthrough at the property with your agent either with facetime or in-person. In-person walkthrough will be coordinated with all parties to adhere with strict social distancing rules.
  8. Wire funds electronically for your initial deposit and downpayment.
  9. Signoff on your loan and title documents. This can be arranged with a mobile notary coming to your home or another location of your choice. Signoff will be done with strict social distancing rules.
  10. Get the keys delivered to you after the sale is recorded at the County electronically.

Stay healthy out there!
