No doubt these are unsettling times in the age of coronavirus. While everyone should take the virus seriously and be vigilant in protecting their own health and that of those around them, some aspects of life may need to go on.
So if you are in a position of needing/wanting to sell or buy real estate during this period, please be aware there are measures we can take together to protect ourselves from virus spread.
I will work with you to your comfort level in implementing protective measures.
Some title and closing companies have remote closing tools available such as electronic notary services, and electronic signature services. While all cash transactions should be able to close remotely using these tools, only a few mortgage lenders utilize them although as of 2020 they are legal throughout Florida for loan transactions. We at Smith and Associates encourage utilizing our affiliate Luxe Title Services who are well trained in the use of remote closing tools.
