Covid-19 and Real Estate Changes in Kitchener Area 


April 2020


By: Diana Martin, Realtor ®


HOW HAS REAL ESTATE CHANGED IN THE PAST WEEK ?

Recently, real estate was deemed essential by the Ontario government.  The housing sector is very important, and home is a SAFE HAVEN for most people. There are many people in transition at any given time, and it is important that none of them become homeless, and that everybody has a good home. I believe that having an adequate, SAFE home is a right, not a privilege. 

Let's face it. Some clients can wait to put their house on the market until this passes, and that's great. If this is you, hit reply to this email or contact me at diana@sellwithdianamartin.com or call 519-569-9103, lets meet virtually so we can get to know each other make a plan on how to proceed so you can maximize your returns. 

Some clients cannot wait, due to multiple circumstances. If this is you, hit reply to this email or contact me at diana@sellwithdianamartin.com or call 519-569-9103. Let's meet virtually, and make a plan to get you the highest return possible on your hard earned equity, and get you on the market asap.


Here are some of the measures in place where we, at Align Real Estate, put your safety first. Its actually a perfect time to put your house on the market if you do not want people to view it in person, because it is acceptable and our rules of conduct have changed to allow this.
