SAFETY FIRST HOME BUYING
COVID-19 COMPLIANT HOME BUYING PROCESS
How Does Coronavirus Impact Home Buying?
Coronavirus impacts the home buying process – everything from the initial consultation through escrow and inspection process. Physical showings are significantly different and open house events are forbidden.
Coronavirus has changed everything about buying a home, but we are not in a panic. I’ve been through multiple recessions and I know how to “make it work” for my clients!
The health and safety of our clients and community is our top priority! We’ve rebuilt our home buying process from the ground up to make the most of today’s rules and recommendations.
We’ve been on that cutting edge of digital marketing for years, but we are seriously upping our game. Some of our innovations are so good, we will incorporate them into our standard business practices!
One of the biggest coronavirus impacts on home buying is with in-person meetings.
We offer One-Click video conferencing that will allow us to meet, almost as in person. We are also comfortable with any system you might already use. We’ll assess all your options and review the fast-changing lending environment.
Coronavirus Impact On Home Price
You probably have an opinion on how the impact coronavirus on home values, now or in the near future. Is it crazy to think you are hoping for “deal” relative to what prices were before Covid-19?
In general, we are not seeing a marketwide softening on price, but we have seen isolated incidents of “good deals”. We’ll help you understand what a “good deal” looks like and set realistic expectations.

Safety First Home Showings And “Open House”
We follow strict home showing protocols approved by the California Association of Realtors in cooperation with the Center for Disease Control. We use the proper legal forms and disclosures and provide complete booties and gloves when needed. Face masks are not provided but required.
In order to physically view an occupied home, you will need to make an offer. It was unthinkable to make an offer “sight unseen” in the pre-covid market, but it is necessary today. You might feel this is too scary, but you also don’t want to lose out on a great deal. We’ll help you understand how to keep your risk at an absolute minimum.
Physical Open House is not possible under today’s conditions. This means you can visit more homes in less time, from the comfort of your own home! We can provide perspective and context as we view these homes, virtually, together.
Safety First Escrow Process
Getting a home under contract is the first big step in the home selling process, but there is an entire process ahead.
You might worry that a coronavirus impact on the home buying process is a decreased ability to thoroughly inspect a home prior to close of escrow. That is not the case. We have access to a full complement of experienced and trustworthy inspectors and tradespeople.
We also make sure everything from the home appraisal to the notary is safe and compliant and almost all paperwork and signatures are handled digitally.
There are a few places (like a notary) where a physical meeting is legally required. We know how to do that in a safe manner as well.
