It It Possible To Sell My House In Harris County During The COVID-19 Crisis?

It feels like the world is different is so many ways. We can imagine some things will return to normal sometime in the future…but right now it is hard to imagine it. Harris County, and the city of Houston have been hit with a double whammy of sorts. The fact that at the same time the coronavirus hit, the oil war with Saudi Arabia and Russia caused the price of oil to fall off a cliff. We must adapt – We are a strong city, located in a strong country. Adapting is what we do. Brilliant Day Homes is dedicated to helping you with all of your real estate needs no matter what is going on in the world. Here are a few questions we have heard since this started:

1. Can I sell my house in Harris County during the coronavirus pandemic?

The answer is a resounding YES! That may come as a surprise to you, but there are still lots of houses being sold, both on the market and with home buyers. Buyers usually go online to search for homes, and right now they have more time to do it!

2. Should I sell now, or wait for the pandemic to be over?

That depends on your situation. Now is still a great time to sell because there is much less competition! While it is true many people are holding off, there are still people out there who are ready to buy your house right now! Buyers are hungry for properties, and yours might be the one that will catch their eye.

3. I need to sell right away. What can I do?

Were you stuck in a difficult situation before all of this started? We’ve spoken to people in foreclosure, people who needed to sell before buying another home, people 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 great price!

4. How we can help you.

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. We can even do a property walk through with you via video conference! All of this can be done from the comfort of your home without having to come in contact with anyone or go anywhere. No matter what is going on out there, we are still able to serve you, determine the value of your house, and help you sell it quickly.

5. Will 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. 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.
