Is Buying a House During the Pandemic a Good Idea?

COVID-19 has affected virtually every sector across the country and the globe. With a future that looks as though it will still be dictated by COVID in the form of precautions and regulations, you may be asking yourself, “is buying a house during the pandemic a good idea”?

The answer may be yes, or no, depending on varying factors and your personal level of comfort. If you are someone who has job stability during this time, it will most likely be worth your while to take advantage of the historically low mortgage rates that are available right now.

In-Person Showings & Virtual Markets

One of the benefits of the COVID-19 pandemic is that so much more of our everyday lives are now being done online. If you don’t feel comfortable going to in-person showings or open houses, you can most likely house-hunt completely or nearly completely online. Many realtors are offering virtual showings as a way to connect with potential buyers without meeting in person. If you do find your dream home, and would like to see it in person, chances are you can schedule a viewing safely by following pandemic protocols such as mask-wearing and sanitation.
