The COVID-19 pandemic is our current reality, and social distancing is affecting both home sellers and buyers. Most buyers aren’t comfortable attending the usual open houses—and many sellers aren’t okay having crowds of buyers wandering through their homes.
So what can you do to sell homes during these trying times?
Opt for the Video Package
An increasing number of buyers are looking and narrowing down their selection online, which means perfecting your listing is crucial. Video and 3D virtual tours are usually a nice-to-have but are currently a huge advantage, and arguably, a must-have.
Stream Your Open House
Live streams of open houses allow multiple potential buyers to view the home without visiting in person. To create a smoother experience, consider getting a stabilizer for your phone.
Virtual Tours and Chats
As an agent, you can provide virtual tours and chats to more serious buyers. Buyers can ask questions, view rooms from various angles, and get close-ups upon request—all from the comfort of their own homes.
