Buy a Denver home During COVID-19 Coronavirus

 If you’re looking for a new home or you are already buying property in Denver or Colorado, then you may be feeling anxious about how the coronavirus pandemic could affect this process. Nothing is more important than your health, so we are taking every precaution to protect you and our realtors during this difficult period. However, we also know how important it is to have a home where you and your family can feel safe and secure. We are taking steps to ensure that we can connect home buyers and property sellers with the minimum of risk. One way that we are doing this is by enabling you to complete as much as we can of the home buying process online with virtual showings and e-signing for contracts.

How Will Coronavirus Affect the Home Buying Process?

We are living through a period of great uncertainty and there will be changing restrictions on what we can and can’t do during the coming weeks and months. Colorado has been significantly affected by COVID-19 and you may have been asked to stay at home here or in another state. You may not be able to meet your realtor in person or to visit homes that you are interested in buying. However, many people will still need to complete sales that were already happening, to move into new homes, or to find somewhere to live. Kenna Real Estate will support you throughout the process of buying or selling your property in Denver or the wider Colorado region. We will always follow the latest guidelines on coronavirus and do our utmost to protect you. As with all other businesses in the US, we will adapt our services as the situation changes.

We have already been protecting everyone’s health by reducing close contact with clients where possible, providing protective clothing and hand sanitizer, and ensuring that buyers, sellers, and our own realtors are aware of the symptoms and when they need to stay at home. We will all face additional restrictions while Colorado is under a Stay at Home order, but Kenna Real Estate will still be here to support you as and when we can. We will also be here to open up our more traditional services again once the COVID-19 pandemic is under control and it is safe to do so.

You will be able to contact us by phone or email as usual and we are also providing electronic contracts so that you complete the sale from home.

Should I still buy a home during the COVID-19 crisis?

Answer: YES! And here's why now is a great time...

Denver has been in a "seller's market" for a few years now, meaning that there has been more demand from buyers than home inventory for sale. This means that many homes have had bidding wars, with multiple offers driving up prices and leaving many potential buyers with no home at all.
But that's not the case right now.
So why not wait? Won't home prices come down because of the virus crisis? The answer here is, "No, not likely." Many potential sellers will choose not to list their home during this time or after, especially if home prices drop at all. That means inventory will remain tight, with less homes to choose from and more demand.
Besides, even if home prices do come down some, they will rebound as the economy picks back up and recovers. And mortgage rates are likely to rise at the same time. So buying a home now, with rates as low as we are seeing, makes homes more affordable.
If you'd like to discuss it more, or maybe find out more about home inventory and affordability in our area, reach out anytime. I'd be glad to talk about it with you, and there's never a charge or obligation.                                                                                                                                               Here is a List of the "Top 25 cheapest states to buy a house in 2022".

Virtual Showings in Denver and Colorado

One way that we are enabling you to continue looking for your new home while remaining safely inside your current residence is by enabling you to arrange home showings online. If you see a property that you like in our online listings, then you can get in touch to set up a virtual listing tour.

Our virtual showings are much more than just video tours of the property. We can arrange live video showings in order to take you around the property online. By setting up live virtual showings on FaceTime or Zoom, we will enable you to get as close as possible to seeing the property in person without leaving your home. You will be able to direct us around the property, ask to see specific things on the screen, and talk to your realtor throughout the tour.

Although virtual FaceTime showings can never be quite the same as seeing the property in person, our experienced realtors will ensure that you get a detailed and accurate online tour of the property. We want you to get a good sense of the property and how it would feel to live there as well as a chance to check out all the factors that matter to you when choosing a property.

Even though we are focusing on virtual showings because of the current situation with COVID-19, there can be some significant benefits to viewing homes online. You will be able to take a good look at the property without having to set aside time to travel to visit it, which can be particularly convenient if you’re searching for a new home in Colorado from a distance. A virtual listing tour is the easiest way to find out if a property is right for you.

We have a wide selection of beautiful properties for sale in Colorado, including many houses and apartments in popular neighborhoods in Denver, Colorado Springs, and Fort Collins. We can arrange live video showings of any properties that interest you so that you can keep moving with your property search even as we all do our part to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

If you fall in love with one of the properties you’ve visited with our virtual home showings, then you will also be able to continue with the next steps online.
