Having notched up our second weekend in a row in lockdown (this time!) here in Victoria, once gain we've been compelled to adjust how we work and live from one day to the next.
When it comes to real estate, it's important to set aside the frustrations that restrictions can cause and focus on the many opportunities in front of us.
When you're on the property hunt, walking through your potential new home before bidding to buy makes sense. After all, we all like to see and feel a space to make sure it's the right fit for us.
So it's no wonder that restrictions on live auctions and in-person inspections can start to have an impact on the market.
Nevertheless, my many years in real estate have taught me ... timing is everything!
As frustrating as lockdowns are for us all, they can also present an opportunity to pounce while the competition for property momentarily cools off.
It might be tempting to sit back and wait until restrictions ease before going house hunting again. But as each past lockdown has shown us, getting in early can mean getting ahead of your buying competition.
Buying and selling real estate in the digital realm is now the new norm, thanks to pandemic-forced lockdowns.
At Chamberlain Property Advocates, we've been at the coalface of bidding online and negotiating mid pandemic for well over 12 months now.
While we might be in lockdown for a little while longer, that doesn't stop us from finding the best opportunities for our clients right now.
