Columbus home buying social distancingAs news about COVID-19 dominates the headlines, Columbus home buyers may feel uncertain about the future. Anyone who is experiencing a loss of employment or business disruption must understandably wait things out. But for buyers who have the wherewithal to stay in the market, it’s wise not to give in to fear. This too, shall pass!

Of course, precautions should be taken in the interests of public health and your own. A recent article in the Columbus Dispatch discussed the measures employed by real estate professionals to help protect clients. These include sanitizing high-touch areas and observing social distancing. Frankly, there are more health risks in grocery shopping these days than in buying a home!

Another option is to leverage technology. While buying a home without visiting it isn’t for everyone, buyers have been doing this for years, relying on photos, videos and listing data. We can supply you with a wealth of broker-level information about the homes that interest you, and even tour homes on your behalf!

When you are ready to submit an offer, our buyer-centric contract includes contingencies to protect your interests, such as home inspections and remedies for repair issues.

We care about our Buyer-Clients! We are observing all practical precautions in the daily course of our business. Our full services remain available during this time of social distancing.

As your Exclusive Buyer’s Broker, we serve your best interests at all times! Unlike real estate agents and brokerages who represent sellers, as an Exclusive Buyer’s Broker, we only represent you, the buyer, getting you the best price and terms with no conflict of interest at all times.

Understanding this distinction could literally save you thousands of dollars not only on the purchase price and terms, but also on seller concessions and home inspection issues, whether you are a first-time homebuyer or an experienced homeowner!

Contact us with your home buying questions! Remember, we are with you every step of the way…all the way home!
