We're Here If You Need Us
We understand everyone's concerns regarding the COVID-19 virus, and you may be questioning how this will affect the housing market. The market is still very active with 477 new listings on the market this month so far and 270 under contract.
Interest rates are at an all-time low which means your buying power has never been greater if you want to make a move. And if selling, lower inventory means less competition as buyers continue to search, especially online.
To keep everyone healthy and safe, the Pei Lin Team of Keller Williams is putting practices into place including teleconferencing rather than in-person meetings, taking separate vehicles when viewing houses to maintain the recommended 6-foot social distance, and when necessary, virtual showings via Facetime, Duo, or Skype. And of course the telephone works too! Our 3-D tours and professional photos of our listings allow prospective buyers to preview properties and vet them online first, before even setting foot onto the property! For some samples of our 3Ds, go to www.YourCNYHome.com/3D.
Undoubtedly, these are challenging times for our world-wide community. We will adjust our business practices to help keep everyone safe as we conduct our business and yours.
In an abundance of caution we are asking our clients to hold on non-essential showings out of respect for the seller and all of our safety. That being said, we understand some people need to buy a home urgently, and we will do everything in our power to make it happen. When viewing a house in person, we encourage both clients and our to use common-sense hygiene such as using hand sanitizer or washing your hands prior to walking through homes.
We are open for business and selling homes. Give us a call or an email if you are considering a change of address. Let our experience bring you home!
