Buying a home now is a bit more stressful to some, but it does not have to be that way. Sellers do ask that you wear a mask upon entering the home, in fact many sellers will leave masks, sanitizer, or even booties at the door for you. For those who are wanting to see a home without physically seeing the home, one can do so, with St. Petersburg International Group’s Custom Video Tour feature. SPIG (St. Petersburg International Group) will do a detailed video showing everything from what is inside kitchen drawers and electrical panels, to what the surrounding neighborhood looks like.
In general, seeing a home during Covid-19 times is pretty much like going to the grocery store. Wear a mask and you are fine. For your protection, it is best that you do use sanitizer when you have completed the tour for your own safety. Now that we have been living with this pandemic for some time, we all now have learned to adapt.
There is much discussion as to why homes are going under contract very quickly here in the St. Petersburg / Tampa area. Many reports say people now working from their residence, prefer to have an actual home, with a yard for the kids and dogs. If a couple lives in Manhattan or the center of town somewhere USA, they are less inclined to take the elevator downstairs, or possibly their favorite coffee shop/ restaurant might now be closed. Before Covid-19, St. Petersburg homes for sale were already seeing a depletion in inventory. Now with this uptick in buying- coinciding with low inventory, we now are seeing homes fly off the market…but not all homes! There is still great opportunity in buying a home for sale in St. Petersburg. The trick is to be quick with the viewing, and quick to put in an offer (asking for a response from the seller as soon as possible).
