  • Listing Appointments can be done using various apps to walk through your home virtually and give you an opinion on items you can work on so you can be ready to list.
  • Pricing and marketing are discussed ahead of ever having me inside your home. I will perform a drive by to check the curb appeal and what I would only know by physically driving past your home.
  • Coming Soon listings are new!!! The days on market do not count and you can be Coming Soon 60 days. It will go into the MLS and will be shared with agents who have clients that are, or will be, in the market for a home like yours. We can gauge interest in this manner while you enjoy your house without visitors.
  • Photographer, Inspectors and agents all make use of gloves and mask while in your home.
  • We are no longer holding Open Houses since we can't control how many people will walk in at one time. But, we are providing a "schedule your spot" on Sunday Open house format. Appointments can be scheduled up to the day of this way and momentum can continue to thrive in a manner that only an Open House can bring.
  • We are providing sellers with gloves to leave for buyers viewing the home
  • Sellers are asked to turn on lights before they leave and agents are leaving them on to avoid touching more than neccessary while in the home. 
  • Agents are showing your home with mask and providing them or encouraging clients to do the same.
  • Agents and clients are driving in seperate vehicles to showings. Buyers are researching ahead of scheduling showings to keep down the number of homes they need to enter
  • Title Companies are emailing packets to clients so they can sign a majority of the documents ahead of arriving. Some are calling these "Drive Up Closings" Agents are not attending closings.
  • I will drop off your closing gift on your front porch- if you have earned one :)

We want you to feel safe and that if you chose to buy or sell in this market you are supported. Boyer Select Properties is here for your needs in all situations. Buyers are still buying. Sellers are still selling. We are an essential business and we need to only practice smart real estate at this time.

How to Buy a House While Selling Your Own

house keyPurchasing a house while selling your old one is the best path to take for many home sellers turned home buyers. In a perfect world, this transition would take place in one day. You'd simply sell your old one, then go on to closing on the new one. Melissa Boyer has often managed to do just that for her clients. However, it's not always that simple, and you may need to plan to expect some time between selling your house and buying your new one or vice versa. 

The process is a difficult dance full of complex steps and a rhythm that is hard to get just right. If you're wondering how to buy a house while also selling your current house, extensive knowledge of the process is important, and empowering yourself with the information you need can save you a great deal of time and money.

So, you may be wondering, can I buy another house before I sell mine? The answer to that is, yes, you can, but the bigger question is whether you will want to once you understand the entire process. First, consider what you have to gain and lose by either selling before buying or buying before selling.
