Latest Update | March 31, 2020
Yes it’s true, you can still buy & sell homes in the Conejo Valley…
This is great news! Especially for those who might not be in a position to wait (or maybe just don’t want to).
As of now, escrow & title companies, inspectors, brokers, and Realtors® are allowed to continue practicing – they make up the team you’ll need to complete a transaction.
Limiting interaction and hand-to-hand contact has become the #1 priority.
Here are the changes you can expect to see in your home search:
- All Open Houses will be cancelled until further notice
- Vacant homes can be toured with your agent
- Sellers should plan to leave during any viewing/inspection of their home
Making an offer, negotiations, and completing a transaction…
Fortunately, all of this is already done online. Using DocuSign, we can easily manage all the paperwork virtually. To protect both buyers and sellers, California Association of Realtors® (C.A.R.) released a new form regarding the Coronavirus:
“The form provides that when circumstances related to the coronavirus are affecting the closing date, the Buyer and Seller agree to extend escrow for a default of 30 days. There is also an optional clause where the buyer and seller can mutually agree to cancel the Agreement and an additional optional clause where the buyer or seller can cancel even after removing the loan contingency if inability to fund is caused by Covid-19 related loss of income.
This form can be used either as an amendment to a contract that is already in place or as an addendum to a contract that has not yet been formed.” | REMAX/One
What you can do…
Keep your search online for as long as you can. We recommend using or Neighborhood Profiles. Each profile covers the ins and outs of Conejo Valley’s neighborhoods with photos & video, school info, demographics, etc. And of course, all homes for sale in each neighborhood.
I’d love to help you buy or sell your home. I’m happy to discuss options and more detail on what to look forward to in the coming months. If you’re ready to start talking about buy/selling (or, simply have any questions), please feel free to reach out anytime!
