The past few years have been great for home sellers in the Athens area. The home value of Athens GA homes has continued to increase. Buyers have had a difficult time getting an accepted contract to buy a home because of the competition from the many qualified buyers ready to buy.
With the changes resulting from the coronavirus pandemic, sales have certainly slowed but prices don’t seem to have been affected. It’s hard to know the long term impact but the industry experts seem to be in agreement that this recession is not the same as the housing crisis we went through a decade ago.
An immediate change in the real estate industry has been in the way homes are sold. The National Association of Realtors and our local Athens Board of Realtors have recommendations for showing homes to include everyone entering a home wear masks, gloves, and shoe coverings. An extra precaution is for the homeowner to turn on all lights and open closet doors prior to the showing. That eliminates the need for visitors to touch these places in the home.
