Has The COVID-19 Pandemic Made Homebuyers More Eager to Buy? 

Has The COVID-19 Pandemic Made Homebuyers More Eager to Buy? 

Has COVID-19 Made Homebuyers More Eager to Buy? The coronavirus pandemic doesn’t seem to be scaring off U.S. home buyers.  According to a recent survey done by LendingTree, more than half (53%) of 1006 prospective homebuyers surveyed said they were more likely to buy a home within the next 12 months. 

The survey showed that first-time homebuyers (73%) and millennials (66%) may be the most eager to buy within the next year. Motivating factors were the ability to save a larger down payment because of reduced spending (32%) and taking advantage of record-low mortgage rates (67%). 

In a recent study from OJO Labs, 200 homebuyers were surveyed who had planned to purchase a house within six months before the COVID-19 outbreak. 45.6% of shoppers said they are motivated to expedite their moving timeline because they think they’ll get a good deal on a home, while low-interest rates are a major factor for 56.5%.   

The study also revealed that as more homebuyers are stuck at home, more are realizing they need space to fit their needs. First-time homebuyers said that extra bedrooms (43.5%) and an open floor plan (45.7%) are more important than before COVID-19.

According to those surveyed by Lending Tree, nearly two-thirds (65%) of homebuyers said the pandemic had impacted how much money they plan to spend on a new home. Among the group, 44% plan to buy a less expensive home and the remaining 21% want a more expensive home.  

Both reports indicated that the perception of reduced home prices (30%), low mortgage rates, and being confined in a smaller space during stay-at-home orders made homeownership more appealing. 

Virtual Tours Have Come Out of The Woodwork

Not only is the pandemic prompting more people to consider homeownership, but it’s also influencing how they shop for a home. Virtual tours, 3D tours, Livestream tours, and even FaceTime tours have come out of the woodwork.  

In the Lending Tree survey, 61% of homebuyers said they have virtually toured a home over the last 60 days and another 33% said that although they haven’t yet participated in a virtual tour, they are actually planning to.

The OJO Labs study indicated that virtual tours have become more valuable than prior to COVID-19 for both those delaying (42%) and those expediting (41%) the home buying process. 28% of those delaying the home buying process still report looking at listing photos and 25% are taking virtual tours of homes more now than before COVID-19.  

The Impact of Stricter Credit Requirements for Mortgages

The only apparent roadblock for homebuyers was qualifying for a mortgage as 44% surveyed by Lending Tree said they were worried about qualifying due to the pandemic. First-time buyers (58%) and millennials (52%) expressed the most concern as lenders have reportedly tightened credit availability during the coronavirus outbreak.  

The Mortgage Credit Availability Index (MCAI) fell by 12.2 percent to 133.5 in April. A decline in the MCAI indicates that lending standards are tightening, while increases in the index are indicative of loosening credit. Although less credit access means lenders are likely to raise their minimum credit score and down payment requirements, it doesn’t mean you can’t qualify for a mortgage amid the coronavirus outbreak. You may have to shop a little harder. 

It’s recommended to shop at least three lenders to find the best rates and get preapproved for a mortgage before you start looking for homes. Keep in mind that lenders are also grappling with the effects of COVID-19 and the process may move slower than normal.

Moving Safely During The Coronavirus Outbreak 

Moving Safely During The Coronavirus Outbreak 

 

Moving Safely During The Coronavirus Outbreak  – Moving can be stressful during the best of times, but when you add a global pandemic to the mix, the task can be even more of a challenge. While social distancing is the course of action to take until told otherwise, moves aren’t always something that can wait. Maybe the home you own was recently sold or you just closed on a new home or you have to relocate for a new job.

For whatever reason you have to move right now, moving companies are still able to help you as an “essential business” and they are taking a range of precautions to ensure your move is easy and safe. If you are working with a traditional moving service, make arrangements by phone or online, and be sure to ask what sanitation practices their movers are following to reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19.

 AMSA Recommendations

The American Moving & Storage Association (AMSA) recommends that consumers and movers regularly check resources like the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in order to stay up-to-date on the latest news regarding the COVID-19 outbreak. Under current federal rules, movers can continue to operate their businesses. However, state governments are enforcing (each in their own unique way) social distancing and restricting permitted businesses operations to services they deem as essential.  

Moving Safely During The Coronavirus Outbreak

Below are some steps recommended by the AMSA you can take when preparing and planning your move:

  • For the health of your family and moving crew, please follow CDC guidelines.
  • Give movers the chance to serve you in the safest way possible. Notify them ahead of time if anyone in your household may have contracted coronavirus, or may have been exposed to someone who has.
  • Check your professional mover’s website and feel free to ask questions on how they are mitigating the health risks of COVID-19.
  • Some professional movers can provide virtual estimates, rather than in-home. If this is your preference,  please check with your mover to see if they offer this option.
  • Try to provide your moving crew access to a sink, soap, and paper towels throughout your move. If this isn’t practical, and it is readily available, provide hand sanitizer.
  • If you plan to pre-pack any items, purchase new moving boxes and tape from your mover; this isn’t the time to use recycled boxes from online sources, or from stores.
  • Your mover may also have plastic bins available for rental. Wipe down the interior and exterior with a disinfecting wipe before packing items in them.
  • If you have shelf-stable food you plan to throw out to lighten your load, consider donating them to  Move For Hunger to help feed people within your community.
  • Consider deep cleaning your new home before unpacking to mitigate further the risk of contracting the virus.

Research Your Movers

Hiring movers should always be a process that involves careful research before signing a contract. With the risk of the coronavirus, many companies have implemented contactless moving, where customers leave their homes while the crew comes in to pack up and load the truck. Many movers are also using video chat technology to see within customer’s homes and provide virtual quotes. 

You’ll want to make sure to ask all prospective movers about their coronavirus policies and practices, and make sure to ask the following:

  • Do you provide virtual or digital estimates?
  • Are the trucks and movers equipped with hand sanitizer, masks, and gloves?
  • Will the truck that’s transporting your belongings be thoroughly cleaned and sanitized before they are packed inside?
  • Will all equipment, such as hand trucks and sound blankets, be cleaned before your move?
  • How often are high-touch surfaces in the trucks sanitized?
  • What is your cancellation/rescheduling policy?
  • How are the movers ensuring employees aren’t sick? This could include taking their temperature on the day of the move and asking if anyone in their household is ill or experiencing symptoms.

Buy New Moving Supplies

During the coronavirus pandemic, it’s safer to buy brand-new moving supplies. Use new cardboard boxes you pack yourself. It’s actually not recommended to use plastic bins. Although COVID-19 can survive up to a day on cardboard, it can last up to 3 days on plastic. You should also pack up your own dishes, books, and clothing rather than hiring movers to do it. The fewer items touch by others, the less chance there is of getting exposed to the virus.

Keep Hygiene Supplies on Hand

Make it easy for your movers to follow necessary hygiene practices by making sure you have adequate supplies of antibacterial soap, hand sanitizer, and disinfectant wipes on hand. That way you are providing plenty of opportunities for the moving crew to wash their hands before, during, and after the move. You should also thoroughly clean and disinfect everything after the movers leave. 

The Takeaway

Being smart when moving during the coronavirus crisis requires that you follow all of the standard pandemic rules and apply them to your move. Social distancing and sanitization requirements need to be upheld. While moving is important, be sure you’re aware of all the facts and risks. Be willing to change your plans if that’s what it takes to keep you and your family healthy and safe.
