In Sickness & In Health…Our 2020 Pledge to You

In Sickness & In Health…Our 2020 Pledge to You

 

We are living in uncertain times right now but, please know that The Maxwell House Group is moving forward to help each and every one of our clients who have real estate needs. We operate in a service-oriented, people business but, know that so much of what needs to be done in the home-buying and selling process, can be done via phone, text, email and video conferencing. 

 

 

Here are a few Charlotte homebuyer & seller tips.

Coronavirus and real estate

 

We are currently bridging the gap of tasks that require our buyers to meet in person. We are showing homes via video visits and FaceTime tours for buyers who have exposure concerns - or sellers who limit the number of visitors in their homes.⁠ And, we definitely won’t be shaking hands or hugging - until further notice! 

 

We’ve canceled all open houses for the foreseeable future and are requiring a pre-approval letter or proof of cash on-hand before any showings.⁠ We suggest sellers provide disinfectant wipes and even a box of gloves for buyers to use as they tour - to open cabinets and doors. As home sellers, we also suggest that you disinfect all countertops, handles, knobs & ‘facilities’ upon returning to your home after all showings. 

 

 

Take a wipe

 

Just as we were during the 2008 recession, we assure you that we are here for you, through all of the uncertainty…and will be until we come out of this - together.

 

Please continue to support local businesses as we all do our part, looking for innovative ways to make certain that our businesses & our neighbors businesses are running smoothly in these uncertain, unprecedented times.

How times and practices have changed with Coronavirus!!!

We’ve canceled all open houses for the foreseeable future and are requiring a pre-approval letter or proof of cash on-hand before any showings.⁠ We suggest sellers provide disinfectant wipes and even a box of gloves for buyers to use as they tour - to open cabinets and doors. As home sellers, we also suggest that you disinfect all countertops, handles, knobs & ‘facilities’ upon returning to your home after all showings.

What a great post Debe Maxwell, CRS . Consumers are looking for assurances and answers. I would love to say it is not affecting my business, but on a busy Monday it was as quiet as it gets. Those calling though are ready, they are full of questions, and with answers they are moving forward

Thank you so much, Barbara Todaro! Such a compliment that you shared this with Tammy! I will say that the door flyers and wipes/gloves idea are going over well. It's a different world right now and we have to establish different boundaries to protect us all. 

I'm feeling a little better, but boy, this bug has ahold of me and doesn't want to let go! Thank God Ray hasn't picked it up - I'm so glad I'm the one that did and not him.

Scott Godzyk, it hit like a ton of bricks yesterday - I think there is a 'shock' period and in my humble opinion, we're in it. It may take a week or two to adjust but, we will. Just as during the 2008 recession, there will be serious buyers and sellers that need us. They just need to get beyond the shock.

And, thank you!

We have two sellers who want to put their listings on hold for several weeks. Hopefully, things will start improving. One is dependent upon and estate sale and the organizer says they are not getting enough people to turn out.

Good morning Debe Maxwell, CRS, I have two buyers and two sellers who wish to wait until things go back to normal. We have to take precautions and don't take this lightly.

I think after a couple of weeks, people will be ready to get out again. I know these are unprecedented times but, we will get through this. We just need to take this time and re-group. We'll all come out on the other side of this, Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD. When your sellers are ready, there will be buyers who are too!

Posted by Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP, Selling Homes Changing Lives (DFW FINE PROPERTIES) 21 days ago

Wonderful post, Debe!  Taking precautions for buyers and sellers.  Disinfectant wipes to open cabinet doors is a great idea.  I would be scared if my home were on the market, and I 'm sure many sellers are as well. This is also another good reason not to allow children on showings.

So, don't think I'm a whackadoodle, Ricki Eichler McCallum but, I think I would buy a couple of portable cameras. I don't want to listen but, just watch to see how 'touchy-feely' the buyers coming through are! How much cleaning am I going to need to do? I think that would allay my fears anyway!

Debe this virus has had minimal impact on my business practices.  We are completely paperless on the loan origination end, so it has been business as usual for me.  Closings and appraisals are another story, but so far those have been going off on schedule.

Posted by George Souto, Your Connecticut Mortgage Expert (George Souto NMLS #65149 FHA, CHFA, VA Mortgages) 20 days ago

Great tips and advice, Debe. It's certainly a time to not panic, but to remain cautious and careful in all that we do, and to avoid being out in public as much as possible other than for essentials.

Well done Debe. If we keep our cool and use common sense, we will we can get out of this sooner rather than later. I love the idea of leaving doors, etc open to minimize touching by buyers. If available the best thing would be for buyers to wear gloves but absent that, carry those wipes!!!!

8-11 would be devastating, Wayne and Jean Marie Zuhl! I feel like the Closings we have in Escrow are going to be our last ones for awhile. The unknown is worrisome.

I agree - just be sensible. I hadn't been to town for over a week, but went today and took precautions - using hand gel before and after entering each store, wiping down the handle on the grocery cart, etc.

If we would all do this - all the time - perhaps the "regular flu" would not kill 12 to 60 thousand people each year.

Since we're not showing property (in addition to no broker tours or open houses) we've been discussing with our legal department different ways to protect our clients yet allow purchases to go forward. A new Coronavirus addendum has been created to allow to flexible contingency periods and close of escrow. Some lenders are doing drive-by appraisals. Most of our local counties can do recordings electronically. Making an offer "subject to" visual inspection by the buyer when shelter-in-place is lifted. Lots of changes and possibilities exist.
