I Closed On My Home Sale During the Coronavirus Crisis

Apr 28, 2020 – Sep 2, 2020
When Doreen Smith listed her house in Castle Rock, CO, in February, the coronavirus was on her radar, but didn't seem like a serious problem at the time.

"COVID-19 was on my mind because I teach high school social studies, and we'd discuss it when talking about current events," says Smith. "But I certainly didn't think that this would be something to have to consider when selling my home."When Smith was about to list her home, she asked her real estate agent if she should be worried about selling because it was an election year. Her agent assured her that January 2020 had been a terrific month for home sales. So Smith decided to move ahead and put her house on the market on Feb. 27.
