Millions of us have spent the last several months adapting to the new realities of the COVID-19 situation. The pandemic has imposed hardships on many. It has also forced changes in the way we work and live. Some of those changes have had a dramatic impact on real estate here in Simcoe County.
If you are considering the sale of your home for whatever reason, we can offer you market data to help you make a determination. Overall, the average selling price of a home in Simcoe County has continued to rise substantially since early June. We are happy to provide detailed market information specific to your location upon request.
It’s not yet business as usual of course. Here are the things we are doing to adhere to directives from health officials to minimize interpersonal contacts and maintain social distancing:
- Safe Home Visits – Our policy is to wear masks when entering any indoor space, including your home, and maintain social distancing.
- Controlled Access – When in-person visits are necessary, we will co-operate with all parties to make sure that visitors to homes are gloved, and do not touch surfaces and objects inside the homes.
- Digital Paperwork – We already do a majority of our contracts and offers using secure digital signature technology. Now we will do all document work digitally, to eliminate the need for multiple people to touch the same document.
The message from health officials and government leaders from all three tiers is clear – we have to do everything we can to maintain rigorous social distancing and prevent the spread of the Coronavirus.
If you have specific concerns about how the current situation may affect your real estate plans or would like to have a virtual appointment, it’s as easy as booking time with us by calling (705) 739-0058 or emailing email@example.com.
And finally a sincere thank you to all our front-line health care personnel.
