Home Buying

Clayton Releases Information for Home Buyers with COVID-19 Questions

March 20, 2020

We at Clayton know many home buyers are understandably concerned as more cities and states implement unprecedented policies to fight the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19). Our country’s leaders and health officials are having to navigate through uncharted waters during these difficult times and are faced with the challenge of how to balance public health with the need to sustain essential businesses and services to support our communities. In many stay-at-home or shelter-in-place orders, the residential home building industry is considered essential and called to continue operating to help more families have a place to call home. To comply with the applicable requirements, the home buying process may look a little different, but our Clayton home centers are committed to providing solutions that still allow our customers to achieve the dream of homeownership.

Our Home Centers are taking the appropriate precautions for your health and safety. If you are thinking of visiting one of our stores, please be aware that all of our Home Centers have been instructed to maintain social distancing best practices and conduct frequent cleanings recommended from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention with EPA approved cleaners. We are here to help you schedule an appointment with a Home Consultant and a private tour of our display homes, or we can take you on a virtual tour from the comfort of your sofa.

In some instances, our home centers may be temporarily unavailable for in-store visits, or our customers may understandably prefer to stay at home at this time. In many cases, we are able to do virtual tours or phone call appointments with any customers who prefer this method of communication. We are encouraging home centers and home buyers to connect virtually by utilizing video screen shares or 3D virtual Matterport tours of our available floor plans.

To keep our employees and customers safe, please feel free to contact your local home center in advance of a potential visit to get more information. You can also view our homes, take an interactive building facility tour, or learn about our home buying process on our Clayton Studio site. We know that the search for a new home sometimes can’t wait and we’re working hard to help make your dream home a reality.

It’s times like this, more than ever, that give meaning to having a place to call home.
