Absolutely No Open House
In the past, holding an open house event was seen as a good way to attract attention to your home. This is not going to be possible due to the COVID-19 outbreak and the social distancing rules that are in place. Many places are under strict shelter in place rules at the moment and you need to cancel any open house events that you had planned. You’ll have to market your home in other ways.
Create a Video Tour
Work with your real estate agent to try to create a video tour of your home. This will allow you to send the video tour to interested home buyers who want to know more about your property. People can use virtual tours as a way of checking out a home without actually having to be there. If you create a good video tour of the property, then it might be able to help seal the deal for you.
Clean Your Home Thoroughly
Of course, it’s going to be essential to clean your home thoroughly before and after any showings. During this pandemic, it’s going to be especially important to clean things to keep everyone safe. Be sure to scrub things down and limit showings to serious buyers only. It can also be good to have hand sanitizer on hand for everyone to use.
Handle Things Digitally
If you get an offer on your home, then you should know that it’s possible to handle things digitally. You can sign contracts, negotiate through teleconferences, and do just about everything else that you need to do without having to go outside. It makes it easier to adhere to social distancing guidelines if you do things digitally. Work with your agent to set things up so that you can get everything worked out digitally.
