If you’re considering building a new custom home in Florida – but the project has been put “on hold,” or it’s even been halted altogether due to the Coronavirus pandemic – you may be wondering where to go from here, and whether or not you’ll be able to move forward in the near future. The Coronavirus outbreak has put most businesses in a state of unknowing. The same holds true for consumers – even those whose jobs have not been impacted by the situation. But, the good news is that, according to the Florida Realtors organization, the Coronavirus “won’t kill new construction.”
In fact, many new home builders – especially those that have experience in operating in all types of economic environments – have been working to maintain business as usual by leveraging their virtual and digital programs.
For instance, connecting with buyers can now be done using Skype, Facetime, or other virtual communication apps. And in some cases, home builders are even enacting “drive through” closings in order to reduce human contact and maintain social distancing requirements.
In addition, given the reduction in mortgage interest rates, it is possible that once the Coronavirus pandemic has ceased, a lower monthly payment could be just the incentive that is needed for some new home purchasers to move forward.
Communication is key in any type of business relationship – regardless of what type of financial or economic situation is taking place. At Rare Builders, we don’t just pride ourselves on our beautifully constructed residences, but also on our communication and customer service.
