Note on the Covid-19 Crisis

We are all considering what the Covid outbreak means for us, our families, our businesses, and of course our property values. And now that all non-essential businesses are closed for an indefinite period, many of our clients who were considering a change are asking the questions: What should I do? Should I buy or sell? Or should I wait? Should I stay or move?

I am here to help. Our business was built from the ground up as a virtual brokerage and we are uniquely positioned to help navigate the current environment. We are communicating via video chat, phone, text, and email. And I am available 24/7. If you have any questions at all or just want to chat about the market, I’d love to talk! Better yet, let’s share a virtual cup of coffee. 🙂 

NEW NORMAL

The current situation is very fluid. And we are monitoring the situation closely, regularly communicating with our local realtor officials and local government officials so we can provide the most updated information to our clients. We are continuing to adapt and we are utilizing the latest technologies to help our clients navigate this new normal. We are incorporating 3D Matterport Tours for all of our listing (you can check out an example here). We can host virtual open houses. We can even virtually stage homes! We are coordinating with listing agents to provide virtual walking tours to our buyers, and we are set up to host virtual consultations w/ our buyers and seller. We have even been hosting full virtual listing and buyer presentations on demand.

REST ASSURED

If you need to make a move, it is still possible to get done. Real Estate qualifies as an essential business. Properties can still be listed and we are continuing to help buyers find properties. And we are doing so in ways that ensure the safety of everyone involved. And if you are facing a temporary hardship due to the crisis, there are many options available to you including mortgage forbearance, student loan relief, government loans, and more. We are happy to help provide guidance here as well. Again, our priority is the safety and well-being of you and your family.

BOTTOM LINE! 

We will get through this together! If there is one thing I’ve learned in my 40+ years, it’s that we are an incredibly resilient country and we will come out of this stronger than ever. This time we have with our families is a blessing if we use it wisely. In the meantime, enjoy the virtual networking, virtual classrooms, and virtual happy hours!

I hope all is well, I hope your family is safe, and if I can do anything for you, please let me know.

Regards,

Dan Spahr
