Yes, You Can Sell Your Home During the Pandemic (Here’s How)

Selling in the current housing market can seem daunting. But with the right strategy in place, you can make it work. Here’s how to sell your home during the pandemic while staying safe and enjoying a lucrative sale.

Put More Effort into Curb Appeal

When in-person showings aren’t possible, drive-by and online visitors will increase, so curb appeal matters even more.

      Keep the exterior of your house spotless.

      Get a handle on your front yard flower beds with mulch.

      Consider painting the exterior (and interior) before listing.

Promote Your Home’s Best Features

Clean, make repairs and declutter to put your home’s best foot forward in photos and videos.

      Take all the standard home selling preparation steps.

      Clean upholstery and carpets so they show well.

      Take advantage of natural light in your home.

      Stage (and declutter) the living room and other high-traffic areas for the most appeal.

Know Your Local Market

From real estate trends to comparable properties, it pays to know your market.

      Understand COVID-19’s impact on your local market.

      Know what home appraisers are looking for.

      Prepare for an appraisal by running your own comps.

If you don’t want to wait to sell your home until the pandemic ends, you don’t need to worry. Highlighting the best features of your home puts you in the best position for a favorable sale. Knowing what to expect from the local market helps you to prepare for listing and selling your home in a snap.
