The COVID-19 pandemic is one of the rarest of phenomena, in that it has directly and literally impacted the lives of every person on the planet simultaneously. Unless you’re at least 100 years old, you do not have a memory of anything remotely like this. It’s affected not only every person on the planet, but every aspect of life as we have sheltered in place, learned about social distancing and grown accustomed to wearing a mask when we go out in public. This would indeed seem like a strange time to be selling your house, but people still are for all sorts of reasons.
Sell My San Antonio House is a team of professionals who hope that everyone does what they can to stay safe and healthy during the COVID-19 pandemic. We’re also here to reassure you that we are still operating as we always have, and we’ll continue to do so. For the most part, the real estate market has continued forward even during this difficult and bizarre time. We’d like to lay out a few ideas for you with regards to selling your house. From there, we’ll explain to you how you can avoid jumping into the housing market race altogether.
Clean, Clean and Then Clean Some More
As a home seller offering your home to those who are house hunting, you need to remember that everyone is going to feel a bit leery about going into someone else’s dwelling. Not only will they be nervous about what they may be exposed to, but they may also be concerned about potentially carrying the coronavirus themselves. This may seem obvious, but if you’re selling your house right now, make sure you clean it thoroughly before any showings or open houses. People need to see and smell that it’s clean and then they may feel more comfortable.
That’s not all the cleaning you’re going to need to do, either. Selling your house means you’ll be showing it more than once to potential buyers, which means that you’ll need to clean it thoroughly after every showing as well. The last thing you need is any lingering possibility of exposure for you, your family or anyone else.
Masks Are Required
Selling your house is in some ways like opening a retail space. You’re inviting the general public inside, and you really never know who’s going to accept that invitation. It could be a real estate agent, house hunters or people just looking around to see what’s out there in order to get ideas for what they can do with their own homes. Regardless of who is there or why, though, you need to make sure that you require everyone who enters your home to wear a mask while inside. It’s the safest precaution you can take, and it can make an enormous difference.
