Keys to Navigating the New Open House

There’s no question that the pandemic has changed the way we shop for everything, including our homes. Just as COVID-19 helped to kindle the housing boom, and with the housing market predicted to stay strong*, there are several keys to navigating the current properties offered for sale:

Social Media
While social media such as Instagram, Facebook and Twitter have helped Realtors to market their offerings more quickly and efficiently in the past several years, these tools are have become essential platforms for bringing a home to market in these unprecedented times. Here at Caskey and Caskey & Associates, Instagram is one of our favorite ways to showcase an upcoming listing. Be sure to follow our team here: @caskeyandcaskey @jencaskeyhomes

Make an Appointment
See something you like? Buying a home is one of life’s biggest investments, so it’s important to do a thorough search when you find a home that might be the perfect fit. As restrictions begin to lift it’s possible, in most cases, to arrange a private appointment with an agent to do a walk-through (socially distanced, of course!) at a home you spied online. Contact any of our associated Realtors to schedule a showing and you could be on your way to your dream home in no time.
