Every day that passes, people have a need to buy and sell homes. That doesn’t stop during the current pandemic. If you’ve had a major life change recently, whether, with your job or your family situation, you may be in a position where you need to sell your home – and fast.

While you probably feel like timing with the current pandemic isn’t on your side, making a move is still possible.

Rest assured, with technology at your side and fewer sellers on the market in most areas, you can list your house and make it happen safely and effectively, especially when following the current  guidelines set forth by the National Association of Realtors and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

We are currently trying to provide as much information as possible to qualified buyers upfront so they can determine if they want to look at a property,”

According to the NAR Flash Survey: Economic Pulse taken April 5 – 6, real estate agents indicate, not surprisingly, that there’s a noticeable decline in current homebuyer interest.

So, while buyer interest is low compared to normal spring markets, there are still buyers in the market. Don’t forget, you only need one buyer – the right one for your home.

In fact, there are currently 847 properties under contract in Miami Dade County and 1,542 single-family homes, condos and townhomes for sale, during the month of April.

Here’s the other thing – people are spending a lot of time on the Internet right now, given the stay-at-home orders implemented across the country.

Buyers are actively looking at homes for sale online. Some of them are reaching out to real estate professionals for virtual tours and getting ready to make offers too. Homes are being sold in many markets specially here in Miami Dade County.

There Is Less Competition Right Now

The same survey indicates that 56% of NAR members said sellers are removing their homes from the market right now. This can definitely work in your favor.

If other sellers are removing their listings, your home has a better chance of rising to the top of a buyer’s search list and being seen. Keep in mind, listings will pick up again soon, as 57% of the respondents note that sellers are only planning to delay the process by a couple of months.

If you need to sell right now, don’t wait for the competition to get back into the market again. Getting ahead of that wave now might be your biggest opportunity.
