The COVID-19 pandemic is changing the way homes are bought and sold, and the Ebby Halliday Companies (Ebby Halliday Realtors, Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate, and Williams Trew) are at the forefront in shaping industry adaptation.
From initial offer through curbside closing, today’s buyers and sellers can take advantage of a multitude of digital (germ-free!) resources throughout their respective journeys. Virtual consultations, showings and tours, property photographs, inspections, and more – all can be done with little-to-no physical contact for the safety and security of the buyer or seller.
And for added efficiency and convenience, the Ebby Halliday Companies uniquely have every piece of the transaction puzzle, including mortgage (Prosperity Mortgage), title (Texas Premier Title), and insurance (Home Team Insurance) services, in place and ready to go. All documents can be signed electronically from the comfort of home or car, and remote notary services are available now as well.
Just in time! North Texas is performing well against nearly every other major market. New listings have increased by 19% in the second half of April, compared to the first half (Source: NTREIS), and showings are up 61% since the beginning of April (Source: Showing Time). Thanks to innovations and strategies underway before sheltering-in-place even began, the Ebby Halliday Companies are well-positioned to meet this rising demand.
With statistics supporting a recovering market and a rise in showing activity signaling an increase in buyer demand, now might be a great time to list your home for sale. Check with your Ebby Halliday Companies agent today to discuss your next steps.
