Jill Heineck’s Tactical Tips for Selling Your House in Today’s Environment
Lee Kantor: [00:00:05] Welcome to Jill Heineck’s Tactical Tips For Selling Your House In Today’s Environment. I’m Lee Kantor. Jill, today’s question is, how do I sell my house safely during COVID?
Jill Heineck: [00:00:18] Thanks, Lee. The best practices right now during COVID have a couple of things in place. One is, pre-screening buyers a little bit more carefully. We’ve always asked buyers to provide a proof of funds if they’re banking on a cash deal or if they are going to be getting a mortgage on it. They will usually supply a pre-approval letter. On top of that, we’re also asking for a COVID health form to be filled out by both the buyers and their agent, just to verify that nobody is sick or has been recently before we confirm a tour of the home.
Jill Heineck: [00:00:54] And this is just making everyone feel much more comfortable. Sellers having people walk through their homes. And then, buyers and their agents feeling more comfortable knowing that everyone is being screened health-wise, at least, before they get through. One tour at a time. There’s no overlapping appointments. Everyone is in and out. And then, there’s a time to disinfect and sanitize and then have people come back in. We do have to prep for a longer, more cumbersome tour experience. But it’s a healthier one. And I think it really does make the seller feel more comfortable that we are showing it to healthy people who are serious buyers.
