You Can Still Find Your Dream Home During The COVID-19 Pandemic

In the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, social distancing is our new normal—and could continue to be the norm for the foreseeable future. But staying at home and keeping a safe distance from others isn’t preventing us real estate agents from helping our clients or potential buyers from exploring and finding their dream homes— we’re just having to get creative.

Thanks to video conferencing tools like Zoom, and FaceTime, virtual tours are becoming the go-to method for real estate agents to show their properties—and for would-be buyers to continue to explore homes while they’re social distancing at home. Just how popular are these video walkthroughs? According to recent data from Redfin, requests for agent-led video home tours increased a whopping 500 percent last week!

Home buyers are spending a lot more time online right now online viewing homes. This is keeping the demand for homes high even in times of quaranteen. With so much high tech video and mapping buyers can get street views, overhead views and interior tours that make them feel like they are right there on the property. I walk them through and talk about the feartures that highlight the house and neighborhood.

How we are working is definitely different but it has been a relatively easy switch for me and my clients. Buyers don't have to leave work or get sitters to watch their kids while they look at homes and sellers don't have to leave repeatedly thoughout the day. It is very convienient for both.

Once you find that dream home you have been looking for I draw up the paperwork and send it via email to be signed electronically and the process of buying your new home begins!!! 

Feel free to download my app to view the current listings on the market. It updates every 15 minutes! We can even message back and forth in the app. If you aren't happy being quarantined in your house, let's find you one you won't want to leave!!
