Selling Your House During a Pandemic

Selling your house can be one of the most stressful things you will ever experience. I should know, I just sold my house in Euclid, and with the help of Joe Vaccaro at Howard Hanna the experience was as stress free as possible. From the start in mid-December with Joe’s dad Lenny Vaccaro doing a quick walk through to give me an assessment, until I listed the house with Joe on May 12th the process was smooth and professional. Both Joe and his dad gave me their honest opinion on my house and set my fears and anxiety at ease. Joe was always available if I had questions and was prompt in replying to my texts or calls. You have access to an app for your phone that notifies you of showing requests and where agents can leave you feedback. To be honest, I was scared to be listing my house in the middle of a pandemic thinking it would take months to sell, but Joe assured me that the buyers looking right now were serious. And how right he was! The house wasn’t on the market for a day before the first offer came in and was sold within three days.  As I sit here writing this, I am getting ready to sign the papers to close. If you are looking to sell your house, but have been putting it off because of the pandemic, don’t wait. Joe Vaccaro and his team at Howard Hanna Willoughby will help you every step of the way. A big thank you to Lenny, Joe, Lisa and the whole team for all your hard work.
