Home Inspections during the Corona Virus

A study done by Realtor.com showed that 63.6% of future homebuyers were unwilling to buy a home without seeing it first. A home is one of the largest investments for many people and consumers still want to see a house in person before they buy it.

Here are some tips to staying safe while trying to buy a home during Corona Virus:

When setting the appointment to see the home, ask the property contact specific questions such as:

Has anyone been in contact with parties who have a confirmed case of Coronavirus?

Is anyone in the household currently sick, coughing or has a fever?

Has anyone in the household recently travelled?

Try and limit the showing to as few people as possible.

During the showing, here are some recommended precautions:

Ask that all the light switches be turned on and doors opened before you arrive.

Avoid touching surfaces

Wear masks and/or gloves as need

Bring hand sanitizer with you 

Buying a home is an exciting time and you should not have to wait. Using these simple precautions will help protect you, the agent and the buyer during these times.
