Should you sell your house during the Covid-19 pandemic?
There’s no doubt that these are uncertain times… and that has made a lot of sellers wary of putting their home on the market.
But it’s actually not as bad as you think.
In fact, just this morning, Vox published an article titled, “Why housing prices aren’t dropping in the pandemic.”
In it, they explain that house values are up 4.3% from last year and the typical home is worth over a quarter of a million dollars!
So don’t fret… if you were planning to sell your home this year and then bailed on your plans because of Covid-19, that’s understandable… but it’s also unnecessary.
2020 is a GREAT year to sell your home!
Here are your options…
- Sell On The MLS — This is the most common way for people to sell their home, but it’s not right for everyone. Remember that if you sell through the MLS, you’ll probably need to pay a real estate agent commission and pay closing costs… you’ll also need to repair your home, update appliances, and maybe even stage it.
- Sell To a Professional Homebuyer — At Pearl Properties, we can purchase your home as-is for cash, we’ll pay closing costs, and we can even close in as little as two weeks. This is a great option for people who have a lot of equity on their home and want to sell without the hassle of using an agent or trying to find a buyer through the MLS.
