MarketWATCH Muskoka Spring Quarantine Edition
Carefully, oh so carefully, we have been working. In the past couple of weeks we’ve had 5 offers accepted. Two of our listings have sold and we have successfully negotiated deals for 3 buyers. Real estate in the time of COVID is different, but it’s still active.
We’ve also had enquiries from people who did not realize seeing property was possible and they missed out on a couple of great places.
If you see something of interest on line, give us a call. We’ll work out a program to view. We can take you to the property by video, or go and take extra photos, there’s usually documentation ( surveys, floor plans etc) which adds detail and understanding. Then, if it’s something you’re serious about, we can arrange a showing after completing a COVID declaration and taking appropriate precautions (masks and gloves) including distancing. Viewing property now does not mean bringing the whole family. Kids and pets should stay at home.
Since our last MarketWatch, the number of listings has increased. Finding a place for the summer is a reality. So is selling a place for the summer too. One of our listings had a really short close (May 13).
Check out what’s new. Here are our faves! Let us know if you want more information. We’re ready to assist!
