As Covid-19 continues to bring uncertainty, many people have reached out asking, "Can I still sell my home during COVID-19?" Miami-based Realtor Janice Garcia answers some of the questions potential home sellers may be asking.


Can I sell my home during Covid-9?

Yes! As per the order placed by Gov. Ron deSantis on April 1, 2020, all Florida residents are required to stay at home except to receive essential services. Per the order, residential and commercial real estate, including settlement services, are considered essential.


Can I virtually show my home?

Yes! Miami Home Shop has all the tools in place to sell your home during Covid-19. Professional virtual tours and drone photography are provided for all homes listed for sale. We also offer individual home websites and online targeted advertising like Facebook ads to help promote your home virtually.

Are buyers looking for homes?

Yes! With so many families suddenly finding themselves staying at home, many buyers that may have been on the fence about purchasing are actively looking. Many people find themselves longing for more space, a bigger yard or pool, and with home inventory low, sellers have a home-court advantage.

How has Covid-19 changed the home selling process?

With many cities under stay at home orders and social distancing protocals in place, Open Houses and Broker's Opens are a thing of the past. Most home sellers are now requiring potential buyers to provide proof mortgage preapproval, and are providing virtual tours and 3D imaging of homes. Buyers are required to wear face masks and use hand sanitizer before entering homes, and are discouraged from touching anything in the house.
