In these uncertain times, sellers are
sometimes hesitant to list their homes, based on the following:
-Life is too uncertain at this point
in their lives.
In 2020, real estate professionals
had their hands full figuring out how to sell homes, but we managed to
effectively and safely conduct business, while still abiding by state and local
regulations. When listing a home, we at
Tompkins Cortland Real Estate found that buyers found the following technology most
helpful on their decision to pursue a listing:
-Accurate and detailed listing
-High-quality listing photos.
When we do show a house to
perspective buyers, we follow state and local regulations, CDC guidance and the
National Association of Realtors (NAR) guidelines. Here are a sampling:
-Limiting in-person activity (2
people only, no children).
-Requiring buyers to wash their
hands, use sanitizer and not touch any unnecessary objects.
-Remove shoes or cover them with
-Face coverings are strongly
enforced, along with social distancing.
So, the bottom line is: TRUST your real estate agent to make sure
that safety standards are in place, listen to their guidance on how to
effectively market and show your property and be confident that they have your
best interests at heart. YES, the market
is very strong and this is a great time to sell your house with a Realtor® at Tompkins Cortland Real Estate. Call our office at 607-898-3456 and talk to any one of our agents!
