Just last month we were going on with our lives as normal, then COVID-19 came in and threw the world upside down. As we all adapt to these changing ways of life, people are wondering if everything has just stopped? The answer is no.
Whether we are working from home, learning virtually, or keeping up with friends through video calls, things are still moving — even if very differently.
As Oklahomans, adapting is what we do.
At the same time, McKinnon Home Buyers is dedicated to helping you with all of your real estate needs no matter what is going on in the world. Below are some of the questions we have been receiving from those still interested in selling their homes. If you have any other questions, we are happy to answer them. Please reach out to McKinnon Home Buyers today at 405-300-5817.
Can you still sell your house during the coronavirus pandemic?
Absolutely! There are still tons of houses being sold, both on the traditional market and with direct home buyers. Buyers usually go online to search for homes, and right now they have more time to do it! Websites like Facebook and Zillow have reported increases in traffic as people are spending more time at home. In fact, during this crisis, we’ve sold and bought a few properties. We’ve even made cash offers in Oklahoma over the phone in just the last couple of days.
What if I need to sell right away?
Were you stuck in a difficult situation before all of this started? We’ve spoken to people in foreclosure, people who needed to sell before buying another home, people who have tenants in their home, and couples going through a divorce looking to divide assets. We completely understand your needs and concerns and will do everything we can to get your house sold quickly while still receiving a great price!
How can McKinnon Home Buyers help me sell my house in Oklahoma City with everything going on?
First, let’s hop on a call to discuss your selling goals and your situation. We can talk on the phone, text, have a Zoom call, meet up on a Google Hangout, or Facetime — whatever is the easiest for you. We can even do a property walkthrough with you via video conference! All of this can be done from the comfort of your home without having to come in contact with anyone or go anywhere. No matter what is going on out there, we are still able to serve you, determine the value of your house, and help you sell it quickly.
Should I wait for the Coronavirus to be over before trying to sell my house?
Not really. Right now is a great time to sell because there is less competition! Many people are holding off, however, there are still people out there who are ready to buy your house right now. Buyers are hungry for properties, and yours might be the one that catches their eye. By getting the selling process started right now, it ensures you’ll be able to sell faster than those who wait.
Can I stay in the house until this is all over?
Yes! You may be hesitant to sell right now because you don’t want to find somewhere else to live during all of this. If you need to stay in the home until this has subsided, we are more than happy to work with you. We are very flexible in our process and will do whatever it takes to make it easy for you to sell your house during the Coronavirus pandemic.
Tips From the CDC
While we want to serve our community the best we can through all of this, we also want people to remain safe and vigilant. The CDC is continuously updating its information to help keep people protected from this awful virus. Remember to wash your hands frequently, avoid touching your face, and disinfect the common surfaces throughout the home. Most importantly, check in with your neighbors to make sure they are doing ok and have the supplies they need. We are all in this together!
If you have had to deal with the consequences of the coronavirus pandemic, either from being exposed or not being able to work, we understand you may need to sell your house now more than ever before. A difficult situation you have been dealing with before all of this started may now be more pronounced, pushing you even more towards a sale. Our team understands what you are going through. We are here for you, and we are prepared to help you with any challenging situation you may be facing. Please reach out to us at any time. 405-300-5817
