Home Selling Steps Post COVID-19

Posted by HomeHunt on March 30, 2021

Home Selling Post COVID-19

The COVID-19 pandemic is not gone but we have made significant strides in creating safer homes and communities. If you are planning on selling your home during this time, there are certain steps you can take to make the process more efficient and safer for all involved.

Some areas of the country is still being impacted by COVID-19, which may cause sellers to second guess if now is the best time to put their home on the market. Although the current condition of our country is not ideal, you can still work with an agent and sell your home successfully.

Home Selling Flexibility and Adaptability is Crucial

COVID-19 has changed the way home selling is done throughout the United States. During this time, it is important to be flexible with your listing agent and understand that everything will not be done the way you may expect. Social distancing is still being practiced, which may cause issues with in-person showings. Also, certain businesses that play a part in the home selling process may be closed, causing a delay in home closings.

Due to social distance practices, agents are using new ways to show and list houses. Agents have been implementing 3D and virtual tours to eliminate in-person contact. They are also creating pre-recorded video walkthroughs for clients to view on their own time. Virtual open houses have also become popular to ensure that open houses are still happening as safely as possible. Talk to your agent about what their capabilities are and what they can offer you.

Make Improvements to Increase Home Selling Odds

Now is a great time to make any renovations or repairs that you can handle yourself. Due to COVID-19, many repair companies may not be able to come to your home to make the renovations. If you can do repairs on your home, that will help you get everything done in time to sell your home. If you are not sure of what renovations need to be done, contact your agent for a virtual walkthrough to get their opinion on what aspects of your home need work.

Your home’s appearance is important to buyers. Here are some ways to improve your curb appeal before putting your home on the market:

  • Landscaping – Sprucing up your lawn can be a great DIY project for you and your family. Trim bushes, cut your grass, weed garden beds, and add some flowers for a pop of color to make your house stand out from the rest.
  • Clean Up – The outside of the house needs some TLC just as much as the inside. Clean your windows, doors, siding, walkways, and your driveway to make your home look presentable.
  • Repaint – Repainting gives your home a much-needed refresher which can make it appear more welcoming and maintained.
  • Check Light Fixtures – Light is important. Make sure all outside lights work and replace old and rusty ones. This can be a quick and affordable way to spruce up your outside.
