COVID-19 Q&A


I WANT TO SELL MY HOUSE IS IT A GOOD TIME TO PUT MY PROPERTY ON THE MARKET?


Yes, absolutely! There's no better time to make a checklist for your home. A good place to start is the staging process. Going from room to room and making a list of any improvements that could be made for example a fresh coat of paint or de-cluttering. Contact my team, we can advise you on the various steps to ensure that your home is presented in an optimal setting and photo ready. Thanks to video communications like FaceTime you will be able to show your home to a member of our team who will be able to give you useful advice to help you prepare your home for sale.



MY HOME IS CURRENTLY ON THE MARKET, SHOULD I REMOVE IT?


No. With today's technology, it is easier than ever to view and obtain a wealth of information on properties currently for sale directly on the web.

Given the circumstances, potential buyers have more time to spend surfing the Internet in the comfort of their own homes. If your home is currently online, buyers have the opportunity to read its detailed description, look at the photos and videos offering a virtual tour of your home. People will be able to decide whether they will visit the property in person once the situation has stabilized.

Currently, we are using all the media and technological tools at our disposal to allow potential buyers to see all the properties of interest, they even have the ability to write conditional offers upon your approval following the visit.



WILL HOUSING PRICES GO DOWN DUE TO THE COVID-19 VIRUS?


Expert Real Estate economists believe that lower interest rates combined with low inventory will continue to help Quebec's real estate market prosper.



I AM CURRENTLY LOOKING TO RENT/PURCHASE A PROPERTY. AM I STILL ALLOWED TO VISIT?


Visits for the moment in accordance with the governments instruction will not possible as of now until the 4th of May. For the time being there are ways to virtually visit a property. If there is a specific property that is of interest to you and you don't want to potentially miss your chance, my team and I can put together an offer electronically conditional to a visit in person.
