2020 taught Realtors many lessons especially how to adapt with how we showed homes, held Open Houses, and getting your home ready to sell. Before the pandemic, a virtual showing was not as popular as an in-person home showing for us. Open Houses were always in person with no protocols in place unless the host had them in place (we always take safety precautions FYI). Listing appointments were so often, we could not keep up!
Enter the shut down in March 2020…..Realtors were deemed essential workers. This was huge for us. People needed to still find a place to live. Many were uncomfortable to leave their homes, so we adapted and brought the viewings to them! Using a stabilizer tool to keep our phones/cameras still while walking through a property and giving a LIVE tour, helped more than we could have imagined. We have given open house tours like this before however not as interactive. Open houses are still being held with many safety protocols in place: wear a mask, do not touch light switches or door knobs, sign in so contract tracing can be done.
We will continue to accommodate our clients’ needs, making all safety protocols for them our number one priority. Now more than ever, expertise matters.
