the school schedule will definitely be present during the real estate transaction. Here are some ideas to consider that may help you as a home buyer or home seller during this time.
Re-Evaluate Home Showing Schedule
Your home showing availability may differ from the summertime. Times and days that were easier, maybe more difficult. Look at your schedule, and determine what will make either showing your home as easy as possible. If you are currently looking to purchase a home, please keep me updated about what you available property touring time.
Sellers may need work from home. Sellers may be completing e-learning. If they are required to be logged in at a particular time, we may need to reschedule for you to have the best home showing experience.
Keep in Mind About Traffic Change
Now that school is in session traffic might be different during these times: drop off schedule, pick up schedule, sporting event schedules, and school zones. Give yourself a little extra time to get to the house we have made an appointment to see.
Sellers: Some home buyers are only available to see homes in the evening. By meal prepping this saves you time that you would spend
Getting Dishes Out
Cleaning Up After Meal
Have a meal, snacks, drinks, ready to go, so that if there is a buyer who wants to see your home, you are already prepared and out the door.
Buyers: If you know you are going to look at homes after work/school, have snacks and drinks ready to go in a cooler in the car. This can help keep you focused on the house, instead of what you are going to eat for dinner.
By being flexible during this time, this can help alleviate possible stress, and help make the home buying/selling during even more successful!
