As 100 million of us adapt to a new way of life seemingly overnight, REALTORS must quickly find new ways of doing business in California, New York, Illinois, Ohio and other states rapidly following suit with "stay at home" orders.    It's time to think outside the box and employ new ways to help our sellers and buyers, while preventing accidental spread of the novel coronavirus.

This fabulous home on 1/2+ acre, built in 1990 [which is practically new around here] was listed on 3/17/20.    Later that day, the Santa Cruz County wide "shelter in place" order was announced.    The next day, our MLS eliminated broker tours and public open houses.   For weeks, I'd been planning to host Saturday and Sunday Open Houses at this property, to serve the sellers by allowing more buyers to tour the home, and with the personal goal of meeting new clients who didn't already have an agent, so I could interview for the job.

 

I quickly decided to do my first public virtual tour of the home on Facebook Live.  For safety, I was alone, the house occupants gone, and I wore gloves.     Really wish someone could have been there with me, holding the camera, some cue cards and a stopwatch!      I know the ideal length is 2-3 minutes, but it’s surreal how one's sense of time is altered when videoing a walk through, alone.

Santa Cruz County home buyers and sellers will need a REALTOR's guidance now more than ever before, as we are experiencing not only the health ramifications of the novel coronavirus itself, but also physical limitations impacting some of the typical inspections, title processes and recordings, and rapid economic, stock and bond market changes that may affect people's income, down payments, and loan options.  We've got a new Coronavirus Addendum to help explain and provide flexibility to handle these brand new issues.

I've helped many wonderful people relocate to the Silicon Valley and Santa Cruz over the last 15 years.   For some, I've used FaceTime (a live phone call broadcasting simultaneous video) to show homes, monitor inspections, etc.    I've also shot videos and sent them later, when the client is available to watch.    Like many of my colleagues, I've done entire transactions virtually and remotely, never meeting some of my out of state clients in person.    So if you find yourself in a position of needing to buy or sell a home in Santa Cruz County, I am here to help you navigate this new world.

 

Staying at home can get boring, and feel isolating, so enjoy my website and feel free to call!

Thanks for dropping by with a comment Will Hamm .     The California statewide "stay at home" order is forcing us to be more creative!
