Colorado Real Estate Showings to be Allowed Again
Showings of Real Estate Allowed Again on April 27
Thank goodness! We’ll be able to see properties again. While restrictions on showings of residential propeties for sale did not bring the Fort Collins and Northern Colorado real estate market to a screeching halt, it certainly didn’t help matters.
As of April 27, 2020, Governor Jared Polis announced that we will be moving from a “Stay at Home” to a “Safer at Home” policy, and visiting homes that you may be interested in purchasing if you are a potential buyer of real estate in Colorado is on the list of activities in which we can again engage.
That’s right, I can again take you into Fort Collins homes for sale that you want to see.
We won’t be holding open houses yet, as the change from Stay at Home to Safer at Home means the transition from quarantine to the new ‘normal’ will take awhile.
Who knows what the new normal will be? No one. But one thing I think we could all agree on is that taking incremental steps toward whatever the future brings is all we can do.
Steps Toward Re-opening
According to Colorado Public Radio, on April 27, in Colorado, retail businesses can open for curbside pickup and delivery. Medical and dental offices, following strict social distancing guidelines can reopen, as can personal services like barbers, hair salons, personal training, etc.; again, all following strict social distancing guidelines. Which of these you follow is completely up to you.
I encourage you to follow the steps that you know will keep you and others safe.
So, What Now?
It’s been interesting to navigate this time in human history. The theme for me has been “no expectations.” There is no way I would expect any of my clients to make any major real estate moves during this time of such limitation and uncertainty.
At that same time, savvy investors realize that when things go sideways, deals can reveal themselves.
Having your finger on the pulse of what is happening is probably the best move you can make. You know if you are ready to buy or sell real estate. You may be wondering if the world is set up to meet your expected outcomes.
The only way to know that is to be in touch with me so that we can do an analysis of your situation and compare it to what the current market is doing.
We are going to be able to view properties as of next week, and for those who have needed to sell throughout this whole COVID-19 situation, they are probably excited to have people see their properties.
Likewise, we were already in a market with low inventory. If you held off selling your home because of COVID, your property might be received with open arms by the market now.
The best thing about what I am proposing is that it is a no obligation scenario.
What will we do? Have a conversation. Crunch some numbers. Plan ahead.
Please let me know if I can help!
