Spring is finally here and it is generally our greatest market though COVID-19 has led to a downturn. We are experiencing a time like no other in our history and it is hard to think that it will not be followed by severe financial fallout.
In the previous weeks, we have seen sales accomplished through our use of technology, we are still getting calls, appointment requests and have actually noticed a huge boost in traffic on our websites. The concern remains: Should I even bother to list my home for sale?
Lets review a few of the favorable and negatives of noting under coronavirus protocols:
On the plus side:
1) People are at house and spending more time on the internet taking a look at homes (Google sites about a 20% increase in online usage).
2) Mortgage rates of interest are low and are forecasted to stay that method.
3) The economy is going to be tough hit. Many companies and stores will be forced to close their doors and the methods of shopping will alter. Economists are forecasting an excellent shift to come.
4) The only market we ensure is “today”. My experience informs me that if the market slumps, then it is better to sell at the top of the depression rather than waiting till the market rebounds. Historically that is a 2 to a three-year window.
5) The realty industry has actually embraced technology with staging, watchings, deals, sign-backs, examinations, funding and closings being deals with virtually. Look for the innovative agents who will facilitate your decision.
6) Silver Burtnick & Associates is using all the tools at our disposal to market without access (if required). Every day new innovations are entering into the marketplace to help us to reach the next level in virtual marketing.
7) There is a fundamental need for more houses in the Greater Toronto Area. There is still more need than supply. Supply is even be less today as sellers have been reticent to go to the market due to Coronavirus.
8) Whether the marketplace is up or down, it is the delta between what you purchase and what you sell that hardly ever changes. Stay focused on the delta.
9) Nobody will understand that your house/condo/home is readily available for sale till you list it, have it on the MLS and have it effectively exposed on social media and numerous sites
On the minus side:
1) It implies preparing your home with the assistance of our stager essentially to ensure that it is at its finest and following through or providing vacant gain access to over a duration of time.
2) Access to the home for photos, virtual walkthroughs or 3D Matterport images need to follow the strictest of protocols and procedures, however, at the end of the day even with the finest of protocols being followed there is an opportunity of infection.
3) We will have to be really delicate to our sticker price. After 16 years of rate boosts and a strong market, you may not be comfortable with getting less than your neighbour got last spring.
4) If you sell and can not discover what you desire, you might need to lease for six months or a year. We expect that the rental market will end up being much easier to deal with in the next couple of years.
Taking the leap to the market at any time is a risk. If there is a requirement to do so today, make a note of the advantages and disadvantages as they use to your individual scenario.
