Can You Still Sell Your House in Edmonton During Covid 19?

We are dealing with unprecedented times! For several years, Albertans especially, have been coping with the effects of plunging oil prices and their economic impact. Then, just last month, as we were going on with our lives, COVID-19 came in and threw the world on its head. As we all adapt to these changing ways of life, people are wondering if everything has just stopped. The answer is no. Whether we are working from home, learning virtually, or keeping up with friends through video calls, things are still moving right along. We are a strong city, located in a strong country. Adapting is what we do. Sunrise Home Buyers is dedicated to helping you with all of your real estate needs no matter what is going on in the world. Below are some of the questions we have been receiving since all of this began. If you have any other questions, we are happy to answer them. Please reach out to Sunrise Home Buyers today at (587) 982-7576.

Can you still sell your house during the coronavirus pandemic?

Absolutely! While real estate sales have slowed to nearly a crawl, there are still some houses being sold, both on the traditional market and with direct home buyers. Buyers usually go online to search for homes, and right now they have more time to do it! Websites like Facebook, Redfin and Zolo have reported increases in traffic as people are spending more time at home.

What if I need to sell right away?

Were you stuck in a difficult situation before all of this started? Despite the worldwide pandemic, many people still find themselves in a personal predicament and may still need to sell their home quickly. There are homeowners in foreclosure, homeowners who need to sell before buying another home, homeowners who have tenants in their home, and couples going through a divorce and needing to sell. We completely understand your needs and concerns and will do everything we can to get your house sold fast while still receiving a competitive price! But sellers must realize that all this economic uncertainty has affected prices in a negative direction.

How can Sunrise Home Buyers help me sell my house in Edmonton with everything going on?

First, let’s hop on a call to discuss your selling goals and your situation. We can talk on the phone, have a Zoom call, meet up on a Google Hangout, or Facetime, whatever is the easiest for you.  All of this can be done from the comfort of your home without having to come in contact with anyone or go anywhere. However, if you prefer we can do a property walk through following recommended social distancing protocols and safety procedures. (Here is a helpful link from the Real Estate Council of Alberta regarding Covid-19 protocols and procedures.) Just remember, no matter what is going on in the real estate market, we are still able to serve you, determine the value of your house, and help you sell it quickly.  We just need to be a bit more creative in these times!

Should I wait for the Coronavirus to be over before trying to sell my house?

That is something you will have to decide.  It can be a good time to sell because there is less competition. But certainly the majority of people are holding off.  Keep in mind there are still people out there who are ready to buy your house right now! There are buyers hungry for properties, and yours might be the one that will catch their eye. By getting the selling process started right now, it ensures you’ll be able to sell faster than those who wait.

Can I stay in the house until this is all over?

Yes! You may be hesitant to sell right now because you don’t want to find somewhere else to live during all of this uncertainty. If you need to stay in the home until this has subsided, we are more than happy to work with you. We are very flexible in our process and will do whatever it takes to make it easy for you to sell your house during the Coronavirus pandemic.

Need to stay in your home longer than usual? No problem! We can accommodate your situation.

Tips From the Government of Canada

While we want to serve our community the best we can through all of this, we also want people to remain safe and vigilant. The Canadian Government is continuously updating its information to help keep people protected from this awful virus. Remember to wash your hands frequently, avoid touching your face, and disinfect the common surfaces throughout the home. And please remember to check in with your neighbors to make sure they are doing ok and have the supplies they need. We are all in this together!

If you have had to deal with the consequences of the coronavirus pandemic, either from being infected or not being able to work, we understand you may need to sell your house now more than ever before. A difficult situation you have been dealing with before all of this started may now be even more severe, pushing you even more into a desired sale.

Our team understands what you are going through. We are here for you and are prepared to help you with any challenging situation you may be facing. Please reach out to us at any time. (587) 982-7576
