Although the Coronavirus has changed the way we approach the sale of a house, it has not made it impossible. We are doing everything we can to make selling our buying a home safe, while not being overly cumbersome for our clients. Below are a few ways we can make listing your home safe, easy, and effective during these times.
Virtual Listing Appointment
For sellers, we can begin with a virtual listing appointment if you prefer. Connecting with a video chat will allow us to see enough of your home to get a good feel for the property and begin work on our end.
Socially-Distant Home Visits
If we start with a virtual appointment, we will need to schedule a time to visit your home in person. This can be done with our without you present if you prefer. We will wear masks at a client’s home (and at the office) if you prefer, and we sanitize after ourselves.
Pre-Qualify All Buyers
In order to minimize potential buyers entering your home, we can ensure that everyone who wants to see your home in person is pre-qualified. This will limit the number of potential buyers who visit to only those who are truly interested and ready to make a decision.
Conduct Virtual Tours
We will also virtually show your home with 3D video walk-throughs, allowing potential buyers to experience your home without being there in-person. This is also a helpful tool for showing your home to out-of-state buyers. Virtual tours allow many potential buyers to experience your home, but only be visited by those who are serious about making an offer.
If a potential Buyer provided their pre-qualification lender, has completed the 3-D tour and requests a physical tour of the house to confirm their interest in pursuing a purchase, we will show you how to prepare for a showing that encompasses best sanitization practices. All parties entering the home will also be required to fill out a Wellness Affidavit prior to entering and wear masks during their tour. Masks and hand sanitizer will be provided at the entry.
Digital Signing & Mobile Closings
Many contracts can now be signed digitally. However, when a physical signature is required for closing, our affiliated title company can send a mobile closer to your location and, following best safety protocols, can capture your signature for closings.
