Home Buying in a Pandemic

Buying a home sight unseen does not mean buying blind.

We as Realtors® are relationship builders and our business more than anything else is creating and maintaining lasting relationships with our clients. 2020 is a year like no other, yet not so different to the world of real estate. 

Regardless of the impact of Covid-19, the New Brunswick real estate market remains strong. Buyers drawn to our Atlantic bubble see as we do, the beauty of our piece of the world, and now more than ever want to buy-in to this amazing place we call home.

With our wide-open spaces, beautiful river systems, safe neighbourhoods, and friendly people, it is an enviable place to live. Our province’s handling of the pandemic has acquired global media attention and New Brunswick has been listed as one of the safest places in the world to live.

It has been a whirlwind of mastering a new and safe approach to presenting homes to clients, both in-person and via face to face video chats. Wearing masks, following sanitizing protocols, and securing additional documentation to keep all parties safe, has now become the norm.

Buyers get the true feeling of a home by walking through it, but times have changed. Real estate has carried on virtually and does so quite successfully unencumbered by the restraints of all that is Covid.

Virtual tours are now replacing physical visits and are the next best thing to being there.  Virtual meetings with clients are more popular than ever. We can take off our masks, be real, be honest, and continue to build relationships that last. It is important that our clients feel secure about their purchase, trust in the process, and trust in us to guide them through the transaction safely and successfully, making their move to and within our amazing province as easy and effortless as possible.

As New Brunswickers, we welcome newcomers with open arms into our beautiful province and rest assured, your chosen Realtor® will do his/her utmost to ensure your virtual purchase is exactly what you are looking for.
