Life on the Gulf Coast moves forward in our new normal. Our schools are shut down and only essential businesses are allowed to stay open. People have learned social distancing and we find more joy in the simple things in life. Real estate is deemed to be an essential business and despite the concern for COVID 19, buyers and sellers continue to make moves at a rapid pace. Listings are seeing multiple offers and buyers are locking in record low interest rates. We are taking precautions that protect our clients when showing and listings homes. Just a few months ago, we prepared for appointments with our clients by printing listing documents, presentations, and market data. Nowadays, we offer the same information with masks, gloves, social distancing & lots of hand sanitizer. It is interesting to get to know someone when you can’t see their facial expressions behind a mask.
Despite these troubled times, we know that there will be opportunities to invest in real estate. We are taking this time to check in on our clients and talk about how their family is doing. We discuss future investments, refinance and what they are doing to protect and maximize their real estate portfolio. We recognize and appreciate all of the sacrifice and hard work that our medical professionals, first responders, and essential business workers are doing to keep everyone healthy and safe. We are proud to be part of this Gulf Coast community that is pulling together to help each other in uncertain times. Call us to discuss your next move.
