Almost a year ago, the world came to an abrupt stop. We stopped dining out. We stopped going out with friends. We stopped having birthday parties. It was a shock felt around the entire world. It might surprise you to find out that one thing that did NOT stop is home sales.
The world stopped for a few short weeks and then companies figured out how to keep people working from home. Kids went back to school in their living rooms. Social meetings took place on Zoom. Dating apps even added video dating options.
At first, the housing market slowed down while people were trying to figure out how to do life in a pandemic. After a while, with masks and social distancing protocols, it picked right back up. Just like before, inventory was slim and buyers were many.
Can I really sell my home during the Corona Virus Pandemic?
The short answer is, YES. You CAN sell your house during COVID. Here in Buffalo, we have adapted as needed and we are still a strong city. Homeowners and housing experts have figured out how to keep things as normal as possible. Rust Belt Cash Offer is dedicated to serving all of your real estate needs no matter what is happening around us.
Houses are selling both through traditional means and direct home buyers. Websites like Zillow have reported higher traffic since the beginning of the pandemic. Likely because people are spending more time at home and have more time to be online. Many potential home buyers begin their housing search on these websites. Stay at home orders did not hurt this process at all.
What if I need to sell right away?
While the pandemic did not hurt the housing market, it did affect people in many other industries. If your financial situation was negatively impacted due to the stay at home orders, you may need to sell fast.
We work with people in many different situations. Those who are in foreclosure or moving and need to sell their current home before they can buy another. Landlords who don’t want to be landlords anymore. Couples going through a divorce and splitting their assets. Whatever your situation, Rust Belt Cash Offer can help.
We understand your unique needs and circumstances. We do everything we can to get your house sold fast and for a fair price.

You can walk through the entire process with us without ever leaving your home. No matter what is going on out there, we are able to serve you.
Should I wait until the pandemic is over to sell my house?
No. Nobody knows when this will end. You do not know how long the wait might be if you are waiting for it to be over.
The perfect time to sell a house does not exist. That said, now IS a good time to sell. Across the country housing inventory is still very limited. That means there is less competition. Some potential home sellers are waiting because they feel unsure. In addition, there are many people ready to buy and having a difficult time finding available homes. Your house might be the exact house a buyer has been searching for!
Getting started now ensures that you sell your house sooner than those who are waiting. Take advantage of the buyer’s market and start today.
Can I stay in my house until this is all over?
If you are hesitating to sell because you don’t want to house shop while the world still feels out of control, don’t worry. If you need to stay in the home until restrictions have eased, we understand. We can work with you to make sure that your needs are met.
As cash buyers, our process is flexible. We will do our part to make it easy for you to sell your house, even during the pandemic.
