April will be a crucial month for the local Palos Verdes real estate market. Although real estate agents are deemed essential workers, there are still many sellers and buyers who elect to employ a wait and see attitude when it comes to selling or buying a property. Rest assured, if you decided to move forward with a purchase or a sale, we have stringent guidelines to follow when showing a home. I recently conducted a showing via FaceTime. The prospective buyer was able to ask questions during the home tour and request to revisit rooms and areas of top interest. It was the next best thing to being there in person.
As many of you know, I’ve used narrated walk-through videos for my listings for nearly a decade, so the transition to virtual selling and buying is easier for me than many other agents. Likewise, I was an early adapter to e-signatures (DocuSign) for all real estate documents. The number of face-to-face meetings is substantially reduced for agents employing these tools. Not only it more efficient, but in the days of the coronavirus, it is safer for all parties.
If you decide to move forward with the selling or buying of a Palos Verdes property, rest assured there are stringent guidelines in place for your protection. Masks, gloves, and booties are now de-rigueur for showing appointments, as well as hand sanitizer and wipes. It’s my goal to keep you safe during the process of selling or buying a home.
As of April 1, 2020, there are 137 single-family Palos Verdes homes for sale. 76 Palos Verdes residences are in escrow with accepted offers, and 123 PV single-family homes have sold year-to-date.
