If you are hesitant about whether to buy or sell a home right now during a global pandemic, you’re not alone. Real estate business is considered essential, so under the Governor’s orders, we are continuing to conduct business. But, it is not business as usual. The concerns about transmission and infection are real. Real estate transactions have always been a very personal process requiring a lot of one-on-one time together. With the new reality we face, the process is still personal, but with less contact.
Some of the precautions I am taking to keep you, your family, myself, and my family safe are:
I wear a mask at all showings and transactions. I recommend my clients do the same.
Switching lights off and on, door knobs, windows, any surface that is usually touched, I do so with gloves on. I throw the gloves out after each use.
I make these available at my listings and carry them with me in my car. I am diligent about wiping down all surfaces that have been touched (even with gloves on) after a showing.
While it can be challenging to maintain a distance of six feet from each other, I offer live video conferencing tours of properties if you do not wish to meet at a home in person.
Virtual Tours and Staging
I include 360 virtual tours on my listings and offer virtual staging. The 360 virtual tour is a 3D-style walk-through using professional photography. It is not a replacement for the physical visit, but it is a close approximation. Virtual staging is where furniture is digitally placed into images of the space. This helps minimize the amount of time and people required in a space.
If you can or need to buy or sell, business is still happening. I am taking all the precautions to minimize/eliminate exposure, so you can transact with confidence. If you are hesitant to proceed, please contact me so we can have that conversation. It is important to me that you are comfortable and confident when making lifetime decisions.
