As the situation with coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to develop, we at Engel & Völkers Chicago are taking steps to continue providing our services while keeping everyone safe. We know that buying or financing a home can be stressful at the best of times, and we're still here to help during this challenging period.
Keeping everyone safe
The health and safety of our clients, business partners and employees is our highest priority. We have implemented policies to limit person-to-person interactions and utilize phone and Internet communication to help protect all parties.
Serving our clients
Thanks to the largely digital nature of our industry, our operations are currently continuing largely uninterrupted. We continue to stay in touch with our clients - sellers and buyers - mostly via phone and email. We are still accommodating private showings at active listings, but we are not hosting any open houses until further notice.
Navigating turbulent markets
Financial markets have been volatile over the past weeks. While no one can predict exactly what's ahead, we expect mortgage rates to generally remain low for the foreseeable future. The slowdown of activity at the height of the spring market may may create some good opportunities for buyers.
If you have any questions about how the current conditions impact your home buying plans , or if I can help in any way, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
