Seeking a New Home During the Coronavirus Pandemic

In the middle of the coronavirus epidemic, finding a new home may not be at the top of many people’s priority lists. Most people are looking to stay at home to avoid the coronavirus, not go out seeking someplace new where they’ll need to confine themselves. However, in many ways there has never been a better opportunity to find a new home, and there are ways for you to find your new dream home without exposing yourself to the coronavirus.

The coronavirus, also known as COVID-19, is the greatest public health crisis facing the United States right now, and almost every state, including New Jersey, has implemented measures to limit the spread of the disease. Many businesses have closed, while others are operating on a limited basis. The real estate industry is still operating during the pandemic, albeit with additional safety measures in place to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

For example, real estate agents are currently conducting open houses remotely, allowing people to see the properties they want to buy without gathering large numbers of people in the same place. Real estate agents and prospective buyers are being allowed in to see houses on an individual basis provided they truthfully certify that they have not been recently exposed to COVID-19.

Many attorneys, similarly, are working remotely from their homes and offices, allowing you to navigate the legal hurdles of purchasing a new home without having to travel to your attorney’s office. With interest rates at historic lows, there is plenty of opportunity for potential buyers to find a new place to live, even with the coronavirus crisis ongoing.
