Best Practices To Sell Your Home During Today’s Times

corona virus real estate
A survey recently revealed that although today’s unprecedented times surrounding the CoronaVirus (COVID-19) has brought about confusion and discomfort, home sellers are still willing to allow real estate agents to sell their home, as well as potential buyers to see their home, under safe practices. What are these safe practices? Well, the real estate market has recently shifted towards leveraging virtual practices much more.

In fact, the same survey asked home buyers what they find most helpful when searching properties to decide on which home to purchase, and in order of preference, they stated:

1) Virtual 3D tours of the property
2) Accurate and detailed listing information
3) Detailed neighborhood information
4) High-quality listing photos
5) Agent-led video chat

Accordingly, given today’s health concerns and social distancing orders, if you are planning on selling your home, you have to make sure to adjust your sales strategy to align with today’s times. You have to make sure you have a digital strategy in play, as well as a strong online marketing plan that includes high quality listing photos and a virtual 3D tour that stands out from your competition. This will not only help your buyers experience a thorough view of your home, but the added touch of quality and your ability to adjust to the rapidly changing market also speaks loudly of the quality of your home and efforts.

Moreover, once a serious buyer has been found through the leveraging of technology, they may wish to see the property in person, and if so, there are ways to show the property in person while taking everyone’s safety into consideration. According to the National Association of Realtors (NAR), here are a few of guidelines:

• Limit in-person activity
• Require guests to wash their hands or use an alcohol-based sanitizer
• Remove shoes or cover with booties
• Follow CDC guidance on social distancing
• Wear face coverings

If you are considering selling your home during today’s time, it is quite possible to do so, and as you have read in our previous blogs, it may be quite strategic to do so. While abiding by state and local regulations is a top priority, a real estate agent as myself, knows exactly what today’s buyers need, have the resources and game plan to implement the digital steps to sell your property, and in short make the sale happen. Additionally, although over time we will overcome this new era of life, the shift towards virtual strategies for sellers will most likely stay, as it also offers a certain level of convenience for home buyers and home sellers.

As always, if you need any help listing or buying a home, please don’t hesitate to reach out.
