Coronavirus is a very real issue that we’re all dealing with in the best
way that we can. The Maryland Governor has declared a State of
Emergency, is closing State-run Offices and Departments to non-essential
personnel and is forcing the closure of Public Schools.
These measures are simply precautions to limit exposure in order to
keep our hospitals from being overwhelmed.
The chief justice of the Virginia Supreme Court on Monday declared a
“judicial emergency” in light of the new coronavirus outbreak — ordering
thousands of trials and other court hearings around the state postponed
for at least three weeks.Of course, the degree
and nature of the COVID-19 outbreak may change, and that’s why we will
continue to provide you with the most up-to-date information possible.
Mayor Muriel Bowser is adjusting the D.C. government’s operating status
as part of the District’s response to the new coronavirus, also known as
It’s important that we listen to the medical professionals who are
bearing the brunt of this by working hard to treat the infected and
developing a vaccine. We must all do our part to slow the progression.
We need to come together as a community to be intelligent
about what is happening and how we can continue with the business of
Real Estate while addressing your needs.
Ultimately, you have to determine what’s right for you as a home-buyer or home-seller. Our job isn’t to push you into a decision you’re not comfortable with, but rather to provide hyper-local context that may be lost in the national media coverage. Conditions that make for a fantastic market for both buyers and sellers still exist—incredibly low rates and rising home values. Our market is still thriving.
So what can you do if you are following the health precautions but still aren’t sure if it’s right to begin the
home selling or home buying process?
If you’re practicing social distancing, our team is ready to offer you a virtual consultation. There’s no need to meet in person as we can still discuss your specific needs in detail. For more info contact: Carlos Caraballo at 202-679-0006 or Patricia Caceres at 571-839-4785
Buyers: We understand that you may not be able to come out to look at homes right now but there are several ways to continue your search from home. As part of our process, we always recommend to our buyers to take a close look at all the pictures, any virtual tours available online and any neighborhood/area factors that would help narrow down your choices. Also, walking the neighborhood using Google street view or google overview of the property to see if the layout of the land is to your liking will help as well. If you want a closer look we can provide you with a live virtual tour of the property from the comfort of your own home.
To schedule please reach out 202-679-0006 or email Patriciac@metrohomesdmv.com
Sellers: If your home is on the market or you are considering listing your home…
- We will be setting up a mandatory hand washing station at showings ( attached disclosures )
- We will have Appointment Only showings on specific days to your liking
- We will hold a Virtual Open house or Showings upon requests
The option to temporarily pull out of market is there but can delay the sale of your home. Further items that can delay your home sale are title searches in MD/VA/DC and any other paperwork that may be needed (depending on the county). It is our intention to continue the business of Real Estate but more importantly stick to our Metro Homes DMV foundations.
Our Clients, their success our safety.
