We at the NewMarket Team hope you and your family are safe and well. We realize that with the outbreak of COVID-19, it is a troublesome time for everyone.
The virus that causes COVID-19 seems to be spreading easily and sustainably in the community (“community spread”). Therefore, we are taking special precautions in accordance with the CDC guidelines on Social Distancing and in doing so, we have acquired some amazing technology to facilitate buying and selling homes on a virtual basis, without any direct contact.
THIS MEANS YOU CAN ACTUALLY BUY OR SELL A HOME WITHOUT EVER LEAVING YOUR ROOM!
All our listings will have this tour of homes so buyers can experience your home without ever walking in the door! In fact, the MLS does not allow traditional ‘open-houses’ currently.
These allow buyers to see everything they need to know about your home by sending a text when they drive-by. We provide mobile-friendly property pages with photos, details, map and contact form.
These allow buyers and sellers to sign contracts from their computer or cell phone.
The Closing Agent has been at the forefront of this trend, having been completing closings this way for nearly a year.
As always, we are available by phone, email, or text to help you through the virtual process. And as required we will arrange individual property visits commensurate with the circumstances and needs.
A little FYI:
How COVID-19 Spreads
The virus is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person.
- Between people who are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet).
- Through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes.
These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs.
Can someone spread the virus without being sick?
- People are thought to be most contagious when they are most symptomatic (the sickest).
- Some spread might be possible before people show symptoms; there have been reports of this occurring with this new coronavirus, but this is not thought to be the main way the virus spreads.
Staying Safe and Well is of paramount importance to us. If you have any questions or concerns please contact us.
