Some may worry that buying or selling a house is not a good idea right now. There are many fears about Covid-19, and how it will affect the housing market. However, here we are in June 2020 and the median closed house price is $219,900, median days on the market is 5!, and the number of closed sales last month was 1,696 in the Omaha, NE area. Housing is a necessity, and there will always be a need for it. We have a strong community, and with the necessary precautions taken a person can safely sell or buy a house with a minimized fear of becoming ill.
The real estate industry has also adapted quickly to the changing needs of the pandemic. Offering virtual open houses, and closings. Also, offering sanitizer, gloves, and masks at open houses or face to face meetings. We as realtors take your safety very seriously, and constantly look for ways to improve the environment around us to ensure as little exposure to viruses as possible.
As the economy and day to day life reopen, please make sure to continue to take preventative measures to keep you and your family safe and healthy. Enjoy the beauty around you, and the community that we work so hard to preserve.
