Before the coronavirus crisis, what were 您r home buying goals?

当前的大流行影响着我们的生活和企业,我们都想知道这种流行会持续多久。许多家庭受到影响,我们的前线工人冒着自己的健康风险来挽救生命,并且经济预计会陷入衰退。“Non-essential”公司和服务业关闭以限制活动,并且我们获得了关键的全职服务以帮助拉平曲线。

房地产行业已发生了重大变化,包括购房时的新政策和新准则。这些政策包括严格的社会隔离,适当和经常的消毒以及疾病控制和预防中心(CDC)的其他建议。由于采取了极端措施,许多人决定暂时推迟购买房屋,直到这场健康危机得到解决。

But there are some who are still looking to pursue their real estate plans this year or just want to continue their house-hunting journey even while staying home. If 您’re one of them, here are three things 您 can do to keep 您r home search on track while giving 您r best to stop the spread of the virus.

2.与受信任的房地产经纪人联系。

多亏了手机,无人机,3D摄像头以及其他软件和硬件,潜在的购买者现在才能够浏览物业,而不仅仅是依靠在线图片。您甚至可以询问您的经纪人,是否可以进行360度虚拟查看。有了适当的社交疏散措施,您现在可以进行实时聊天或您的代理进行FaceTime,让他们引导您穿过某个物业,或者检查周围的区域和附近地区。他们赢了’可以为您提供有关在州或地区实际购买房屋的许可条件的建议。

 

底线

Our usual activities may have been put on the sidelines for now, but with the guidance and advice of experts, continuing 您r home buying journey is still possible. We may press pause on our home buying plans, but it's better to always be ready and informed about what’发生在市场上。它’充满希望和智慧,这极大地提醒了我们也将过去。
