With so much uncertainty surrounding activity within the real estate market, and with government-mandated protection measures in place, many home sellers have decided to just Pause, Watch and wait.
There are, however, circumstances in which waiting to sell is not an option. Are you in one of the situations below?

  • Do you need to sell your home in order to finance the new purchase that you have already agreed to?
  • Have you suffered financial losses and need to liquidate your home equity to maintain your lifestyle or business?

These days successful real estate depends on:

1)
Reaching Buyers Online, beyond the MLS

2) Virtual Showings, using virtual tours and beautiful HDR photos to give the buyer's a traditional "first showing" or "Open House" moment so they will still experience love at first sight

3) Safe-In-Person Showings that encourage the right people to see a home in person with minimizing risk.

 

Showings Best Protocol

I want to help you cope and stay safe while you engage in any real estate-related activity. That includes adopting showings best protocol to ensure safe and healthy procedures for listing, showing, and selling your home. 

1) Limit the number of individuals who attend in-person listing appointments to the minimum who are necessary (e.g., those making the purchasing decision) and prohibit all non-essential visitors.

2) All individuals who will be present for an in-person appointment must complete a Health Disclosure Statement prior to the appointment.  

3) All individuals present for any in-person real estate activities must utilize hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol, wear masks and remove footwear on entry.
