Services for Real Estate Pros with InboundREM

Real Estate with Covid-19

When COVID-19 started at the beginning of 2020, a lot of things undergo readjustment; and it does not spare the real estate market in San Gabriel, California. Homeowners putting their properties on sale observe proper health protocols to avoid COVID-19 transmissions. The realtors can still present properties to possible buyers and still close the sale through online means. It is unmistakable that people are still shopping for homes regardless of the big blow in the economy. There are still a lot of ideas and tools to boost your sales volume during this crisis if you are resourceful enough to try new things.

3D Walk Around Home Inspection

Touring the house in person is no longer an ideal first option for buyers canvassing homes in an area. 3D Virtual Home Tours is a great way to promote the properties you are selling. You can use simple and easy applications to make 3D models of your property with your smartphone. It is cost-effective. You do not need the service of a videographer or any tech people to do it. This virtual home tour can be easily done within an hour, depending on your home's area size. The prospective buyers can see your property from their smartphones, laptops, and specialty media can be seen on VR headsets.

Virtual Open House via Social Media

Facebook is an excellent way to attract prospective clients into buying your property. All you need to do is set up a Facebook page and a public event for your virtual open house. During your virtual open house tour, you can show the viewers around, highlight key property features, and buyers can check out every room and corner alongside you.

For a more personal experience with your prospects, you can also do Facebook Live. You can post the schedule of your real-time tour on your Facebook page. During the live session, you'll get to talk and be able to answer questions from your potential buyers. You will also know the number of people watching your broadcast.

Smart Lockbox Access

This is another way to gain access to the property you are selling if you live away from the area. This smart lockbox can safely store your spare key and can only be accessed with a PIN code. You can then give the PIN code to your realtor or prospective buyers so that they can check the house by themselves. If you want this option, make sure not to leave any valuable things within the household.

Physical Tours

If you wanted to show interested buyers around your property, you might do so as long as you observe the proper safety protocols. Social distancing, handwashing, wearing masks, shoe covers, and gloves must be strictly observed to help keep you, the realtor, and buyers safe. Items such as hand sanitizers, wipes, paper towels, and antibacterial soap must be readily available and visible around your house. It is also your responsibility to disinfect the house before and after each tour. During this pandemic, most of our tasks will be focused on online marketing. Technology has become a valuable tool for everyone. You have to utilize the tools available and prioritize everyone's health and safety.
