Resources to help you navigate the new real estate normal....

Technology and good-old-fashioned creativity are helping agents, buyers, and sellers abide by COVID-19 health and safety practices while getting deals done.

Some buyers are touring houses virtually. Others visit in person while remaining at least six feet from their agent. Sellers are hosting open houses on Facebook Live. Appraisers are doing drive-by valuations. Buyers are watching inspections via video call. Masked and gloved notaries are getting signatures on doorsteps.

“We have had to make some adjustments, for sure,” says Brian K. Henson, a REALTOR® with Atlanta Fine Homes / Sotheby’s International Realty in Alpharetta, Ga. “Everyone is trying to minimize face-to-fHere’s what home buying and selling during the pandemic looks like.ace interactions. There have been some delays, but mostly, deals are getting done, just with tweaks.”

HONK - Emergency Help Needed For Families In Program

Capture2

HONK continues to move forward with its mission to help low-income people with an affordable home and a clear path to homeownership.

We are reaching out to you for your help, for dark times do not affect all of us equally. As we know, our most vulnerable populations are the hardest hit.

Know that one simple act may be the difference that keeps hope alive for someone in need.

HONK is currently serving 34 households in affordable homes that we have built or rehabbed. Though a few are renters, the vast majority are in our lease-to-own program and on the path to owning their home. Most are minority families with children.

Each HONK family has worked hard to get into their home. They now need help keeping it.

Every day we are hearing from more HONK families struggling with employment. In one household, both working adults have lost their jobs. Several of our families are self-employed, out of work and struggling to make ends meet. For those that have managed to retain their jobs, they are having to choose between earning an income and risking their health, and the health of their families.

All are in desperate need of help. And in the weeks ahead, these needs will continue to grow.

We don’t know the full impact COVID-19 will have on HONK or the families we serve. We do know that our families won’t be able to survive this alone. The need is urgent.

We are asking for your help in creating an Emergency Fund to assist HONK families through this crisis with their monthly house payment.

Donate Today!

House payments are made to HONK at the first of the month. Most are wondering how they are going to make their next payment. Your support will help HONK families keep their homes and weather the storm. For those in our lease-to-own program, your support will also help them stay on track with their goal of homeownership.

The goal is to raise $20,000, which would cover almost exactly one month of payments for each of our 34 households.

Since your support would ultimately ensure continued income to HONK, it will also help the organization weather the storm, so we can continue our mission into the future.

We need you to give today! Every day and every dollar counts.
