I am interested in how the pandemic has changed your priorities and your dreams. Every other day I see articles about how our current circumstances have made people question their lives: urban dwellers want to move to the suburbs to get away from people, suburbanites want to move to the cities because everything is within walking distance, people want larger larger homes with larger yards to spread out, people want smaller homes because they want less “stuff” in their lives – it goes on and on.
What about you?
Are you and your better half on top of one another trying to work from home? Did you discover a couple of tricks to help you repurpose space for your kids to do their school work? (If so, I hope that you will share them in the comments!) Have you never been much of a traveler but now you can’t stop dreaming of visiting someplace exotic or maybe even Idaho? 🙂
Have you thought about how you will achieve these changes you want to see in your life?
Your home, whether you own now or are dreaming of a future home, is the biggest investment you will make. Are you using your current home to make your life easier? Or did it become a burden during the pandemic? Are you wishing you had more space? More yard? Or, just wish you could stop renting and finally have a place to call your own?
As an “essential” employee (Realtors are considered essential as moving is sometimes a choice thrust upon you), I haven’t stopped working during the pandemic. In fact, I have been busier than ever because there is a major housing shortage! Rent? Buy? Either way, there are just too few homes. Expensive home? Cheap home? Doesn’t matter! Too few homes.
Why am I telling you this?
It is still a great time to buy as the rates are LOW! Just be prepared that it may take a bit more time to find your perfect place. And, if you are thinking about selling, there has never been a better time. You won’t need to worry about people trudging through your home for weeks on end because, if it is priced right, it will be sold quick!
Take just a moment and think about how the change of selling or buying a home can ease some of the issues you have had during the last four months and then call me. Let’s get a plan in place to help you live the life you want.
