Hi Guys….I hope everyone is well and staying safe. If you are like most people, quarantine created long lists of home renovation tasks. New paint, quick remodel of a bathroom, etc… For some, these changes were not enough. They realize they need a home office, they aren’t in love with the layout, they need space for personal time. Whatever the reason you are starting to look, COVID-19 has changed the way we preview homes.
In California, all buyers must sign a new form called Property Entry Advisory and Declaration, “PEAD” for short. Your agent will have you sign this form and will provide to the listing agent and seller of every property. We have also seen more requests to tour properties virtually. As a result, you will see more 3D virtual tours available on listings. For now, we are seeing more sellers hesitant to let just anyone in their home, as a result, more people are asking for Lender Pre-approval letters before viewing.
Whatever the reason you are looking, we would love to help and can make buying your next home safe and easy.
