Were you surprised at the increased value of your Jacksonville home? However, even with this strong sellers’ market, we are still seeing many homeowners choosing not to sell. Reasons some Sellers are not putting their houses on the market include ongoing concerns about the health crisis, financial uncertainty, and relocation complications.

Here at Navy to Navy in Jacksonville and Pensacola, we can help you navigate the waters of the “new normal.” Whether it’s the future of your employment situation or just being uncomfortable having guests in your home for showings, we know life feels a lot different than it did at this time last year. The good news is, our real estate professionals have spent the majority of 2020 figuring out how to sell homes safely, and it’s paying off for those who are choosing to move this year.

The incentives to sell are many, and another bonus we offer at Navy to Navy Homes in Jacksonville is a cashback incentive.

If you decide to go forward with selling your home, we want you to know that our agents in Jacksonville and Pensacola are doing two things very well to ensure you experience a smooth transaction.

1. Our Agents Are Implementing Technology in the Process

For example, our Navy to Navy agents have capitalized on the technology that buyers find most helpful when deciding on a new home:

  • Virtual tours
  • Accurate and detailed listing information, including more high-quality photos
  • Detailed neighborhood information
  • Agent-led video chats
  • E-Signature of offers, counteroffers & contracts

We listen to our audience and leverage the tools that help buyers get an initial look at a home without having to step inside, which helps reduce the number of people entering your home. Only those who are very seriously interested need to take the next step of in-person showings.

2. Our Agents Are Facilitating Safe and Effective In-Person Showings

When serious buyers want to see your house in person, our Navy to Navy Home agents in Jacksonville and Pensacola follow the guidelines set by the National Association of Realtors (NAR) and utilize safe ways to proceed. These safety measures include:

  • Limiting in-person activity
  • Requiring guests to wash their hands or use an alcohol-based sanitizer
  • Removing shoes or covering them with booties
  • Following CDC guidance on social distancing and wearing face coverings

Getting comfortable with your agent – a true trusted advisor – and taking these steps under the modern-era safety standards might be your best plan. The help of one of our agents is especially important if you’re in a position where you need to sell your house sooner rather than later.

Bottom Line

In this new era in our lives, things are shifting quickly, and virtual strategies for sellers may be an ideal option. Opening your doors to new approaches could be game-changing when it comes to selling your house while the market is leaning in your favor. Let’s connect so you have a trusted real estate professional to safely and effectively navigate all that’s new regarding making your next move.
