Buying A Home During Coronavirus - Coventry Homes Edmonton

Buying A Home During Coronavirus

The coronavirus is affecting nearly every aspect of our daily lives. You may find yourself working from home, cancelling planned vacations, ordering curb-side pick-up, and even physically distancing yourself from friends and loved ones.

If you had been looking to buy a new home you may be left wondering – what do I do now?

While buying, or building, a new home might not be feasible for everyone during this time, it might be a wise choice for you. If you have job stability and you can take advantage of historically low mortgage rates, buying or building a home might be the right move, even now.

You may decide, however, to put off buying a new home until the pandemic settles down – and that is OK too. We are here whether you would like to continue with your new home search now, or if you are researching your options for building a new home at a later date.

No matter what your timeline, we can help.

Coventry Homes continues to prioritize the health and safety of our customers, trade partners and team by adhering to the guidelines set out from the Canadian and Alberta Governments. In doing so, we have re-designed our process for the ‘new normal’ and have gone digital!
