The Coronavirus & Local Real Estate

There’s no avoiding the fact that Coronavirus is now in our community, but there are steps we can all take to avoid bringing it into our homes.

With the closing of the Stratton School, Arlington is now one of many towns in Massachusetts trying to contain the spread of the disease, and officials continue to educate and inform us about the realities and misconceptions surrounding the outbreak.

Aside from the obvious health concerns for you and those around you, if you’re in the market for a home, you may also be concerned about the impact this will have on local real estate.

Because this is a relatively new and quickly evolving situation, the reality is, no one can really say for sure – at least for now. However, we can say that demand for homes in the Arlington area remains high. And with interest rates at an all-time low many buyers are seeing this as an opportunity to purchase a home that they might not otherwise have considered.

Now more than ever, you need an experienced and educated local real estate team by your side. We are your first line of defense – and your best offense – in Greater Boston real estate.

If you are interested in a home but you have concerns about attending an open house, call us. We can work with you to find a solution that suits your comfort level. If you are a seller but you’re on the fence about whether to place your home for sale or wait until later this spring,  call us or send us an email. We have the experience and knowledge to tailor a plan that will put you at ease.

Keep calm, wash your hands, and stay healthy my friends.
