Like many things in today’s world, as we all work together to ensure the health and well-being of Puerto Vallarta and our globe, things that may have been easy decisions are now a little more complicated and timelines have become blurry about a variety of things. One question that our clients have been emailing and calling our agents about is the viability of listing their Puerto Vallarta property in this market. While it may seem like a disadvantageous time to list your home, here are a few compelling reasons to consider this as the time to go to market.
- No inconvenience for renters/easier to show. If you use your property as a part-time vacation rental or second home you most likely have it vacated currently, so you don’t risk any loss of income or difficulties scheduling showings at the current moment. (Any and all showings conducted right now are only for prequalified clients with the utmost care taken for your property and all parties.)
- Fewer fresh listings on market. There are fewer “New Listings” coming on the market, meaning less competition and your property becomes the hot, new thing that hasn’t been seen before.
- Consumer confidence in hard assets. With an unpredictable stock market, investors are looking for traditional, solid investments and real estate is a great one.
- People are looking for their “someday soon” dream. Popular Facebook groups like “Like View from My Window” have exploded on the internet, as people are looking around the world and dreaming about what life will look like when we leave our houses. In fact, online searches for Puerto Vallarta real estate continue to show strength on Google and other search engines, as people are thinking about how life will change when we are free from sheltering at home and how they want to live their lives going forward.
Our agents are currently working from home, but able to show vacant homes and have them photographed for listing or live videos taken for distant clients. We can work with you to find the right price to get you maximum value for your home and make it attractive to buyers. And our agents, while at home, are busy managing virtual tours, working our Live Chat feature and talking to buyers via email and telephone. Contact us today for an honest conversation about your real estate goals and our digital marketing strategies to see if this is a good time for you to sell your home.
