As 2020 begins to wind down and winter closes in, many people this year are re-thinking their work and their day-to-day lives. This was bound to happen right about now. There are so many baby boomers exiting the workforce and settling into retirement (early or otherwise), but the trend has certainly been accelerated by this global pandemic we’re in. 

As your agent, I can tell you that many people are re-considering their primary homes and their real estate portfolios at the moment. Because almost everyone has been forced to work from home, you’ve all been spending far more time there than usual and, now, many of you are wondering if this is the way it’s going to stay. As a result, you’re asking: “Is now a good time for us to sell our current property and search for a new one – with more space and more privacy… for health and safety's sake?” You’re not alone. 

This last summer and into the fall, luxury properties (distanced, and with more square footage for home offices and gyms) have been selling extremely well. Check out our first feature article for more details. 

As your agent, it’s my job to help you get the timing right and list your home when there’s a good chance it’ll sell quickly at a decent price. I also see it as my responsibility to help you keep your dreams alive… including finding that perfect property for the next phase of your life. 

I’m here for you -- even (or especially) during these unprecedented times – to help you make the right decisions for you and your family when it comes to one of the biggest investments in your lives: your real estate. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to me this fall.
