One of the only things we can all agree on…. Covid sucks! No matter what you are trying to do. See a kids football game, go to the store for milk or try to teach 5th grade math to your child. Covid sucks! Unfortunately we have all had to adapt. Real estate is no different. We have had to basically change our business models overnight. The less techy agents were left in the cold. Fortunately we are very high tech here at Orson Hill Realty.
Is it dangerous to sell your home during Covid?
Can we list a home that is occupied?
Will the agents be contact tracing?
Even before Covid we did a very good job (for security) tracking people going through the listings. Now it is very important.
Are all buyers prequalified?
It is hard to make sure 100% of all buyers are qualified buyers. We do our best but some may slip through. As a seller you can require proof of funds or lender letter. The buyer agent will make sure they are ready, willing and able to buy.
What will closing look like?
Closing is a bit different now too. Don’t expect to sit across the table from the other party like before. Most title companies are conducting drive up closings. You sit in your car and sign papers. Not ideal but legal! Also remember they are not allowed (at least for now) to any orders that interfere with real estate transactions. It is an essential business and the government can not stop you from entering a lawful contract with another party. This includes duties performed by 3rd parties like inspectors and appraisers. The show must go on! Real estate generates a lot of money for the government and they will always allow transactions to happen. That and, at least as of now, the government can not void a legal contract between 2 parties for no reason.
What you need to understand..
Covid is out there. If you are high risk or concerned you may want to wait a little while to list your home. Since there is no way to prevent this disease 100% all we can do is minimize the risk.

Orson Hill Real estate brokers all have a Realtors designation. Not all real estate agents in Colorado are Realtors. Realtors have to abide by a higher standard of ethics set forth by NAR (National Association of Realtors), CAR (Colorado Association of Realtors) and a local associations like MMAR or PPAR. Orson Hill Realty also has its own ethical standard above and more strict than the Realtor association requires. Realtors need to have more continuing education than just a real estate agent or broker. It is much more beneficial for sellers to have the peace of mind of knowing you are using a Realtor and even more of a piece of mind knowing you are using an Orson Hill real estate agent.
When a seller lists their home sometimes they don’t understand the home selling process. Most sellers are not aware the actual real estate agent selling their home is responsible for all the marketing and cost involved in getting your home out there to the buyers. Orson Hill Realty is one step ahead of other firms, especially the larger real estate brokerages. One thing that sets us apart from other firms is we take a lot less money as a “split” from our brokers. Meaning we let our agents/brokers keep a lot more of their commission to run their business. What that means is a Orson Hill Realty agent has more money to advertise and market your home. That means more people see the seller’s listing and that means more people coming through and real estate is a total numbers game. The other thing that puts OHR above other firms is it is one of the few brokerage firm with marketing department in house. OHR helps design brochures, pushes all listings across the web and basically sends your home out on the web like no other real estate company.
