Coronavirus update: State of the Central Florida Real Estate Market
The Real Estate Market is Still Active
Past 7 Days in the Greater Orlando Area (Orange, Osceola, Seminole, Polk and Lake Counties)
Here at Market Connect Realty our highest priority during this time is the health and well being of others. We encourage all to adhere to all CDC guidelines for safety. Local authorities though do understand the importance of housing and Real Estate has been considered by local counties to be an "Essential Business"
We will remain available to assist you during the Stay at Home Order. We understand amidst all of the challenges our current pandemic has brought, people still need to move and the dream for homeownership is still strong. We have adjusted and are practicing "Safe Showings." We invite you to work with us virtually or in person while practicing social distancing and taking additional hygene precautions.
2 Ways to Safely View and buy a Property During the Corona Virus Pandemic
1. Virtual - We will be happy to provide you with a live virtual tour or can send you a video. We will do which ever way is more comfortable for you.
2. In Person but safe - Once you find "the one" from virtual showings you may of course want to see it before we get it under contract. We will speak with the seller's agent to make sure the house is sanitary then we will maintain safe distance as we allow you to tour the property.
For Sellers- 3-D Self Paced Virtual Tours
Your goals are still achievable and we can meet via virtual appointment or arrange for us to safely see the property. We are also including with all listings a 3-D virtual tour shoot so that online shoppers can take an entire self paced tour of the home online.

To Summarize: Most of home shopping can be done virtually online. Once a buyer has strong interest in a property we can then take steps that everyone involved is comfortable with in order to remain safe but allow the buyer to see the property. Then inspections can be done by professional inspectors, title companies are working from home, and county workers are still available as well. This minimizes everyone's exposure to others while still efficiently accomplishing the goals of both buyers and sellers. Safety is first and the highest priority, but the virus doesn't have to stop you from achieving your real estate goals.
