Are you new to working from home due to the pandemic? If you’re like many of us, your living situation probably isn’t ideal for that. Working off of your couch, in front of your flatscreen TV with
the news on (which, most likely, isn’t far from your kitchen full of snacks…) is a recipe for distraction and anxiety. It might not seem like the best time to think about upgrading your living situation, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. In the world of virtual home tours and the ability to make the transaction as contactless as possible, there is no reason to feel guilty about starting your new home search.
Along with extra rooms for home offices becoming a desire during the pandemic, people are also requesting homes with an extra bedroom and bigger backyards. An upside to Covid-19 has been the chance to reconnect with family and friends. Many have been quarantining with extended family and some will continue to cohabitate long after the pandemic is over. Now buyers want to make their homes as inviting and spacious as possible for their loved ones.
“Some seem more optimistic and eager to buy while rates in the housing market are so low. The housing stock will be more attractive than what it is to rent, being that some are currently considering buying a new home to take in more family members because of the effects of the pandemic.” – newhomedirectory.com
We clearly know that safety is a priority now more than ever before, which makes living in a quality school district is a top request from buyers. Now that the summer is here, it is the perfect time to start your dream neighborhood search, and due to the pandemic, there is less competition. A lot of people are on pause and the likelihood of getting into a multiple bid situation is lower. Right now buyers will have the ability to negotiate better terms i.e., price and closing date. According to rockethomes.com, rates are currently at record lows. Low rates mean lower payments. And because no one’s sure how long this situation will last, it is believed that rates will stay this way for some time.
