Should I Sell or Buy a Home during the COVID-19 Pandemic?



Learn how we are Selling and Showing homes during the biggest Health Crisis we have seen in our lifetime; Covid-19, by following Federal, State and Local Guidelines. We are practicing social distancing by allowing only 3 people into a home at one time, using hand sanitizer or gloves and wearing masks & shoe covers.  By using digital technology we are providing virtual tours for those clients who are not ready to physically walk thru a home and with programs like DotLoop all clients can sign forms electronically. We are keeping up with daily changes in the mortgage financing industry so sales can stay on track. Closings are done remotely whenever possible with attorneys providing POA for their clients when needed.
