We have good news for you if you are on the fence about selling your house this year. Since the pandemic began, real estate professionals have worked non-stop to ensure the safety of buyers and sellers.
These days, they are seasoned experts in the art of buying and selling homes and how to keep you safe as you move forward. The industry has taken on new technologies, plus safety and sanitation measures. Even as new variants emerge, agents add value by applying those lessons.
Advisors Keep Up-to-Date with In-Person Showing Guidelines
Agents don’t take chances with your health. For safe in-person showings, they follow guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the National Association of Realtors (NAR). NAR maintains industry-specific resources to ensure that agents are up to date on the latest recommendations and best practices.
CDC guidance enables real estate professionals to implement sanitization and disinfection procedures during a health crisis, ensuring your home and potential buyers remain healthy.
Digital Tools Can Enhance Your Home Sale
Agents are also adept at using digital tools and technology to sell your home quickly and efficiently. According to NAR’s guidelines for realtors:
“The COVID-19 pandemic is impacting members in unprecedented ways, and raises numerous unique and novel issues for the real estate industry.”
As a result, real estate advisors are rethinking the tools and technologies they use. Nowadays, it is more important than ever to limit exposure to others and serve clients remotely. This is because limiting the number of people you need to interact with throughout the sales process keeps everyone safe.
Agents use the following methods to fulfill this goal:
- Virtual Open Houses, Tours, and Listing Appointments
- High-Quality Photos for Websites and Social Media
- Video Conferencing
As a result of today’s health challenges, real estate professionals conduct business in a whole new way. Contact me today so you can have the latest tools at your disposal when you’re ready to sell your house this year.
