Everything is Cancelled? Not quite!
ROOM Real Estate Open Houses this weekend have NOT been cancelled. We made the decision to keep our listings open for buyers despite the Coronavirus concerns and because the fact of the matter is that some people are in a situation where they need to sell or buy a home regardless of the virus.
Perhaps homeseller already purchased another home and can’t afford to pay mortgage for two homes for an extended time? Perhaps they’re moving out of the area for a job transfer and have to sell? Maybe homebuyer’s rental lease ends next month, they have to move and would like to buy instead of renting.
Therefore, to service our clients needs we are working hard and doing our job the best we can, under the circumstances. We managed to get in contract on 5 properties this past week. Homes are still selling! And there are currently some great opportunities out there for people who have the ability to take advantage of them.
Here are some of the ways we are helping buyers and sellers during the Coronavirus pandemic. This may change if the recommendation from the officials calls for even more drastic measures.
- Disinfecting homes for sale – we have a supply of Clorox and Lysol products and are wiping down surfaces, door knobs etc.
- Private showings – we are available show homes privately to avoid contact with multiple people.
- Virtual tours – All ROOM Real Estate listings have 3D Matterport interior tours available on our website. These can be viewed on any device or with goggles at our office for even more “real” walkthrough.
- Facetime – We can walk through the property with homebuyer on the phone viewing it.
- Electronic signatures – all contracts, negotiations and disclosures can be discussed over the phone, reviewed online and signed electronically.
ROOM Real Estate Open Houses for 3/14 – 3/15.
Several of these are wonderful, private properties away from the hustle and bustle and crowds of the City and Silicon Valley.
