CORONAVIRUS - RESPONSE & UPDATED PLAN FOR BUYERS & SELLERS

Action Items:

As a company, our top priority continues to be the safety and health of our agents, employees, and clients. Because coronavirus (COVID-19) has continued to spread to areas throughout our market area, we are taking certain precautions to ensure your safety and a successful real estate transaction.

We are still open for business and fully prepared to service all of your home selling needs. Now more then ever, you need a “trusted advisor” and we are confident that our team of sales professionals can guide you through these unsettling times. Here are some things we have implemented:

  • At this time, our staff and real estate professionals will be working remotely and our offices will be closed until it is deemed safe to return.
  • Our real estate professionals will be hosting virtual open houses instead of in-person open houses.
  • We are encouraging virtual showings of homes instead of meeting in person.

Due to the public-facing nature of our business, we want to stress the importance of the CDC's recommended precautions as they apply to meetings between agent and client: washing hands often, avoiding close contact with others, and disinfecting work and other surfaces. We encourage all to use their personal discretion, but know that our staff is here to create a safe environment and to assist you with questions about your real estate needs.

There are tremendous opportunities right now due to historical low mortgage interest rates, making homes the most affordable in years. We have been in constant touch with our mortgage partner, Prosperity Home Mortgage about all that they are doing to insure a smooth transaction. Our Title Insurance partner, Associated Title has anticipated some potential challenges in obtaining searches in selected counties and they are communicating with us daily as to any potential impact.

Now more than ever, you need a “trusted advisor” and we are confident that our team of sales professionals can guide you through these unsettling times. We have instituted a daily Zoom Video meeting with our entire management team to discuss any challenges and brainstorm solutions daily. We are committed to riding out the storm and being here for you as needed.

With information regarding coronavirus rapidly changing, please know that we will continue to monitor the situation and adjust our course of action as needed to support your needs, as well as to minimize business disruption.
