COVID-19 Changed How We Sold a Havasu Home in 2020
By www-thehavasuhome-com December 23, 2020

COVID-19 changed the Havasu real estate market in many ways. For example, zoom rooms/home offices and outdoor living spaces found their way towards the top of many homebuyers’ “must-have” lists. Social distancing meant changing how our Havasu homes were both marketed and viewed. Plus, signing documents went even further into the virtual world. With the hope that new vaccines will bring the world back to “normal”, some of the adaptations we saw made in the real estate industry during COVID appear like they might actually stick around for a while.

Even after the COVID-19 vaccine returns the world to "normal", some of the changes the Havasu real estate market made to conduct Havasu home sales might stick around for a while.

What Temporary Changes to Selling a Havasu Home May Become Permanent?

Virtual Views

Remote viewing became quite popular when real estate in Lake Havasu shut down in-person viewings. That meant that buyers either looked at virtual showings online or used their real estate agent to conduct an in-person walk-through of the property while they watched via a video call. This way of viewing a Havasu home may continue well into the future. A busy lifestyle sometimes makes it difficult to include searching for a property in the Havasu real estate market. This adaptation to navigating the market during a global pandemic made it a little easier for buyers to fit it in their schedule.

Better Online Listing Info

In addition to virtual viewing, buyers of real estate in Lake Havasu want to see better photos along with a more complete description of the Havasu home. Another innovation that took off during these past few months is the 3D virtual home tour. Check with your Lake Havasu REALTOR® to see if they add this to their marketing campaign. Otherwise, you might get left behind in the Havasu real estate market.

“Contactless” Closings

Finally, even closings went virtual for the most part in the Havasu real estate market. You may have utilized a curbside pickup for food or groceries sometime in the last few months. Well, some buyers and sellers signed their paperwork for their Havasu home at the curb of the title company’s office. Some signings went completely virtual, too. Everything was signed through a secure online portal instead of in person. This became so much more convenient for those involved that some experts believe this practice will continue for a long time when buying real estate in Lake Havasu.
