Covid-19 Vaccination Rates & How to Factor Them Into Your Home Search

Looking to buy a home and have a shortlist of your buying criteria?

Things like a large living room, cute breakfast nook, large backyard, grand master bedroom, and at least three bathrooms could have already made their way onto your list. However, there is a new criterion that has made its way into homebuyers’ list while looking for a new home - Covid-19 vaccination rates... and for good reason. 

Buying a home is one of the biggest investments that most people make in their lifetime. You spend a lot of time researching various aspects like what kind of home to buy, how much money you will need for down payment, and so on. But, it's not just about buying a place that you'll live in - this decision will have an impact on your lifestyle and how you spend your time each day.

If you're planning to buy a new home and want to find one in a county where the vaccine is successfully making the rounds and some sense of normalcy is slowly returning - we've got you covered - so you can mingle with your new neighbors and have peace of mind that you and your family are as protected as possible.

At ZeroDown, you can now check the Covid vaccination rates of the county you’re planning to buy a home in, right on the home listing page. What’s more, we’ve also made it so that you can track the performance of the county against the state and national average. 

Here’s what you need to do:

Step 1: Start your search and find a home you love!
