In short, yes, you can safely sell your home; you’ll simply need to implement a few safety measures. How far you’ll need to go does depend on the house itself. For example, if your home is vacant, not a whole lot needs to be done, since you and your family’s safety isn’t in question there.


However, if you occupy the home you’re trying to sell, here are the best practices:

The Current State of Our Market

How has the Greater Phoenix area housing market been impacted by COVID-19?

In the Greater Phoenix area market, we have 13,932 active listings on the market that do not have a contract tied to them. Around a month ago we had over 14,000 homes on the market; this metric had been on an upward trend in April, but began to downtrend more recently. Overall, this is a decrease from where we were a year ago when we had around 17,000 homes on the market. However, our inventory levels are up considerably over where we were one quarter ago, when we had only around 11,500 active listings.


As far as pending sales go, there are 6,250 homes under contract. That’s up over last month’s 5,703 homes, but it’s down from a quarter ago and significantly down over a year ago, when there were over 7,500 pending sales. While activity hasn’t come to a complete halt, it ...

There’s also hidden, untapped equity we can help you access as well. 


Many people look to investors to buy homes that aren’t in tiptop shape. Usually, in this case, they give up a portion of the home’s equity because they don’t know how to update, they don’t want to go through the hassle of it, or they don’t have the budget for it. 



The good news is, we’ve partnered with companie ...
