Should You Be Buying and Selling a Home Right Now

By Acme Homes 4-20-2020

When it comes to the housing market you might be leery on whether you should put your home up for sale or not. There are a lot of variables involved and you might be thinking whether during a pandemic is the best time to do so. Well to be frank, of all the times you could buy and sell a home no one really would ever choose a pandemic to do so in. However, life goes on and there are certain things that are beyond our control. Acme Homes wants to help make light of the situation.

People are still buying homes. There seems to be more buyers out there than there are homes at the current moment. This is good news for those who are looking to sell their home. You might have pulled your home from the market thinking that there wouldn't be very many people looking, but it turns out that is not the case. In fact, construction of homes is one of the businesses deemed essential. So, you can count on there being more homes available despite this pandemic.

Thankfully we have the internet. Although you can’t go and tour a home in person, you are still able to “tour” it. What do we mean? Nowadays you can virtually tour homes. This will help homebuyers to see if it is the type of home that they want to buy. Although a virtual tour may not be your first choice, it is better than nothing.

Another essential feature to keeping the housing market going is home inspectors. You may not be able to go into the home and make sure everything is sound and safe as far as the various aspects of a home go but a home inspector can. They are still able to go inside homes and give you a detailed report of the home you are wanting to buy. In doing this inspection they will help identify anything in the home that you may want fixed before you buy it.

When it comes to the housing market, we want you to know that things are still up and running. Although there may be a few hiccups, it is not anything that will keep the housing market from continuing. Acme Homes has several new homes! If you’re looking for a home in the Washington area, then give us a call today! We would be happy to set up a virtual tour.
