The feasibility of buying a
home during COVID-19

Buying a home right now might seem like an impossibility, but as some parts of the country have been impacted more than others, conditions do vary.

With social distancing being practiced across the country, and even shelter in place directives issued by state and local governments, it may not be possible for you and your agent to tour people’s homes. Not to mention, other businesses that play an integral part in the transaction process might also be closed. These include home appraisers, inspections, closing and title services and movers.

To understand the impact on the real estate market in your area, it’s best to speak with a local agent who knows the current conditions and restrictions that may be in place.
