Real Estate Update To 30 November 2020

The rural and semi-rural communities in our primary service area continue to set new record for both sales numbers and price increases. This is especially true for communities within commuting distance of Ottawa.

At the same time COVID-19 has seen a large number of people working from home and many fewer cases in the rural area areas. Buyers are also migrating this way looking for more affordable homes, quiet and safe communities. Many older homes lack the open concept design and are very suitable for home offices especially where privacy is needed.

We have seen the bidding wars of summer taper off.  Fewer buyers bidding against each other and, in some cases, bidding wars are not happening. We are also starting to see some expired listings for the first time this year- most of the time that is due to over-pricing the home.

This is also due to the time of year and buyer fatigue (losing out too many times). Buyers are beginning to look towards the spring market.

WE LOVE REVIEWS LIKE THIS!

We really appreciate receiving comments like this from our clients and we thank them for putting their trust in us.

“We wanted to thank you very much for the incredible job your team did selling our home. You made it look easy, but we are well aware of the hours you put in marketing it especially in the very difficult times we faced with COVID19. You were a pioneer in the virtual open house and we loved watching it. We were very impressed with how well you kept us informed every step along the way and you listened to us and guided us expertly.

Their home went on the market the day the province declared a state of emergency and essentially shut down due to Covid-19.

But their home SOLD!

Certainly Covid-19 has changed the way things are done in real estate.

We took full advantage of this and implemented new safety precautions, limited the number of showings and moved open houses online. We held what I believe was the first virtual open house in the Ottawa Board. This was done on “Facebook Live” and was a great success with 58 viewers and 3 agents logging in to watch as I walked through the house describing the home to the viewers.

Far more than would drop in to traditional open houses.

It is a fabulous way to do an open house as viewers get to see the house as it really is and not just from looking at professional photos.

We saved that video, put it up on YouTube, and then attached it to their MLS listing for both agents and potential clients to look at as well.

Much of the paperwork was signed electronically as we have a special program called Dotloop which enables this to be completed on your phone or computer.

They were super clients who made sure their home was ready and sanitized for every showing. They provided, gloves and masks and extra sanitizer as well. All lights were turned on, doors open etc- there was no need for buyers to have to touch anything. After a showing they went through their home again making sure everything was sanitized again.

There are plenty of very serious buyers right now, but home inventory remains very low. Homes are listing and selling every day in the areas we work and it can be done very safely.

If you have any questions about the market or the safety measures in place, give us a call at 613-897-6839.
