    How to Tour a House Remotely: A Guide for Homebuyers

    You’ve done your research online and found what looks like the perfect home. You’d love to go take a look, but due to circumstances (you live out of town or, ahem, there’s a global pandemic), you aren’t able to tour the home in person.
    When you can’t walk through a house yourself, the next best thing is a remote home tour conducted by either the agent or seller. If you must buy a house remotely, this could be one of the only ways for you to tour the home before you buy.
    Here’s what you need to know about touring a home remotely.

    How a remote home tour works
    To take part in a remote home tour, all you need is an agent local to the area where you would like to buy and the ability to communicate through an online platform.
    To enable you to see the home, your agent will walk through the house for you with a cell phone, using FaceTime, Zoom, Skype, or another video chat service, showing you the house one-on-one. The National Association of Rea ...

    How to Pack Up Your House and Move Safely During Coronavirus

    Packing up your entire house is never a fun or easy task, but COVID-19 has thrown movers a few additional curveballs. Quick and frequent runs to the hardware store are pretty much out of the question — and you’ll want to think twice about using borrowed or “found” moving boxes. Plus, now’s not the time to call in favors from friends, as much as you’d love to bribe them with some pizza and beer in exchange for their help.
    If your move must go on, here we’ll cover how to get your moving supplies safely and on time, sanitize all your packaging, and strategies for packing during quarantine to make the best use of some extra down time.

    Order your moving supplies early
    Since trips outside the home are discouraged, you’ll want to have a comprehensive list of moving supplies ordered online well before you start packing up. Most services are reporting delayed shipping times between 5-7 business days after ...

    Should I Sell My House Now or Wait Until the Coronavirus Eases Up?

    You had plans to sell your home when the coronavirus hit the U.S. like a ton of bricks. Now, you’re wrestling with a really tough decision about whether to move forward — and when.
    Some would-be sellers are frozen in place, hedging their bets and hoping the situation improves in the coming months. But not every seller has the luxury to take a wait-and-see approach without making serious trade-offs. Some may be driven by a job relocation, a growing family, or other distinct life event.
    Although selling a home in 2020 and beyond is going to look a lot different than it used to, people haven’t stopped selling houses altogether. And considering that the lingering effects of the virus could last into 2021 and beyond, we can’t expect an “all clear” signal anytime soon for putting out that for-sale sign.
    Here’s what top agents in the field are seeing in their market, what they believe sellers can expect, and how they’re advising hom ...
