One of the more stressful situations in life is selling your home, and unfortunately, the current situation has made it much more so. There are many concerns that a person selling their home has these days. Is it going to be possible to show a buyer the home? Will the housing market crash and cause your home to lose value if you don’t get it sold quickly? Will anyone even have the money to buy your home?
These are all valid concerns, but keeping a cool head and doing your research will serve you well any time, but especially during stressful times.
First, make sure that you get a real estate agent that knows what they are doing. Many are setting up virtual tours of homes to give buyers an opportunity to see a property without having to risk their health.
Second, don’t feel like you have to take any offer that comes your way. Even though you might see less interest than there would be during less tumultuous times, there are some positives that can cause home buyers to go ahead, such as the low federal rate influencing low mortgage rates.
