Coronavirus Precautions When Buying or Selling a House in Seattle

Buying Houses During the COVID 19 Outbreak in Seattle
Are you buying or selling a house in Seattle? Coronavirus has impacted all of our lives in various ways, but if you were planning to buy or sell, you may feel like a wrench was thrown into your plans. The good news is that our team is here to help! While following the guidance of local, state, and national officials, we are still able to help you buy or sell your house.

Through Chaos, There is Still Beauty

My wife and I live in the neighborhood of Ballard, and have noticed that many businesses have boarded up their windows. When this happened several weeks ago, it felt alarming and scary seeing all our favorite shops and restaurants closed down. But then something beautiful started to happen…artists began painting wonderful murals, collages and comforting words of encouragement, and once again we felt the warmth and togetherness of our vibrant community. Are these delightful artwork pop-ups happening in your city as well? You can watch the video of beautiful paintings here.

What We’re Doing to Follow Safety Precautions

When a team member or maintenance worker enters a home, they are equipped with gloves, a mask, and shoe coverings. We practice physical distancing, and have eliminated any meetings that can be conducted over the phone or via a video call. We are taking this very seriously and are doing everything we can to keep our team and our sellers safe.

How We Can Serve You

First, we are always available via a good old fashioned phone call! We’re happy to learn about your needs, buying or selling goals, and your situation! If you prefer, we are also available to video conference at any time. We can do home walkthroughs via Zoom, Google, or Facetime! Plus, many documents can be signed remotely via Docusign.

What You Can Do To Help

If you are buying or selling a house in Seattle, there are Coronavirus protections you should put in place for you and your family. We recommend holding off on seeing homes in person or having people in your house to come and see it. These things can be done online for the time being until the curve has been flattened and life begins to return to normal.
 

Try to avoid having outsiders come in for repairs or maintenance. However, if there is an emergency and something needs to be repaired, make sure they have protective covering and keep your distance. Be sure to sterilize your house on a regular basis, especially if a repairman or other professional comes into your home to provide a service. Washing your hands, disinfecting your house, and practicing physical distancing are the best ways to keep you and your family safe.

It is Still a Great Time To Buy or Sell!

While we might all be going a little stir-crazy at home, there is no reason things shouldn’t move forward if you are buying or selling a house in Seattle.
