Why This is Time for Your Own ‘As Soon as This Passes’ Plan

Like many other local professional people, we Costa Mesa Realtors® have been working in a challenging (you might say, “topsy-turvy”) business environment. It’s one that nobody had foreseen—much less prepared for. It has taken multiple adjustments to navigate through some awkward restrictions, but since the need for shelter can’t always be put on hold, they were necessary. As in many localities across the country, even while honoring the most stringent Shelter in Place restrictions, highly motivated buyers and sellers have been able to work with their agents to negotiate and finalize transactions. 

But now the path ahead is somewhat more predictable. It’s becoming evident that we are nearing a new phase—one where we will cautiously back into what everyone is calling the ‘new normal.’ It’s likely that the anxiety that has prevailed will fade, then disappear. Social distancing will at least moderate, as well. Not this summer, perhaps—but eventually. That opens an opportunity at this juncture. This is a moment when Costa Mesa residents might think ahead about how they can best prepare for what happens next.

 Especially for those who have had to put off plans to buy or sell Costa Mesa homes, this can be a time to sit down and draw up an “As Soon as This Passes” plan. For sellers, that could include a target timetable for preparing your property for listing; for buyers, a prioritized checklist of features to qualify the homes that will deserve further consideration. Sellers-to-be can take this opportunity to contact area tradespeople—whose phones will be ringing off the hook soon enough—to schedule any help they will need to prepare their properties for sale. For one and all, the probable reality is that “as soon as this passes,” any surplus stay-at-home free time will pass with it!
