Are you selling your occupied home during this pandemic?  Check out this video to set proper expectations on your closing time line.  Everyone in our industry is being mindful of social distancing and sanitation recommendations. Buyers are experiencing lender delays/processing with most companies working from home and sellers can expect delays with township inspections as well. 

In order to offset the delays, we recommend

1. Confirm C.O. requirements for your township
2. Be prepared to step out while appraisals, inspections and walk through are taking place
3. When your home is occupied, turn on all the lights and open all doors prior to the visit to eliminate contact

We look forward to assisting you during this time.  Should you or anyone you need need real estate guidance, contact our agents at (609)392-0600 or info@sbrrealtypros.com.

When you’re in the market for a new place to live, finding the right neighborhood is everything. But in our current state, with shelter-in-place orders in full effect in many areas (and mere common sense limiting people's excursions), scoping out a new neighborhood can be a little more challenging. But with some online detective work and the right tools, you can learn a lot about a neighborhood without leaving your home.

That's because you're not the first one to consider buying a home without being able to pound the pavement personally.

“As buyer's agents, we will often shoot video of the neighborhood and/or home for our out-of-area clients,” says Katie Wethman, a real estate agent with the Wethman Group at Keller Williams in McLean, VA. “We also have video streaming apps like FaceTime, Skype, and Zoom to bring them with us.”

Even though you won't be able to pop in to a local coffee shop or take a leisurely stroll down Main Street, exploring a neighborhood in the time of coronavirus is possible. So let your fingers do the walking—on your laptop—and get to digging. Here's how to start your research.

1. Check out neighborhood publications and social media
2. Take a walk with Google
3. Browse websites with neighborhood data
4. Search other real estate listings
5. Call a real estate agent
6. Investigate schools and educational data
7. Check rime rates
8. Plan your daily commute
