The real estate market is starting to rebound in Colorado after lifting the stay at home order on Monday. Now people are more willing to buy the house as they see it from inside. "I like the kitchen and the open space in the backyard," said Brenton Cain, while he saw a four-bedroom, four-bathroom Castle Rock home on Tuesday. "It's hard to get a feel for a house just looking at a virtual tour or pictures." He was the first potential buyer to get to see the house from inside in Douglas County after stay-at-home is lifted.
Realtor Amy Salley, the lead buyer's agent with The Prevail Group at HomeSmart Cherry Creek, said that on Monday, she sold a townhome that was ready to be sold for long in some hours. "I felt a little bit of relief," said Salley. "We have all this business that is just sitting there, and there is nothing we can do about it." The demand for real estate had increased, but guidelines vary for different counties as some allow showings, and others don't. Some clients still resist going to other people's homes due to the spread of the virus. Realtors like Salley are bringing masks, gloves, and sanitizer and taking precautions to keep themselves as well as others.
