6 Ways We’re Keeping Buyers Healthy

6 Ways We’re Keeping Buyers Healthy

Buying a house is an emotionally and financially significant event, even when we’re not in the middle of a global pandemic. If you’re in the market right now, you may be asking yourself whether the investment you’re making is sound (it is), or how you can ensure your health and safety during this unprecedented moment, and still buy your dream house.

As a tech-forward team, we’ve mastered the tools needed to orchestrate your pitch-perfect virtual home search. If you’re ready to buy, we’ll work our magic and find you a home you’ll never want to leave — even once shelter-in-place has been lifted. Here’s how.


1. Virtual Appointments

Although we’d love to, we can’t meet you in person. But that doesn’t mean we can’t make it personal! We’ll meet you wherever you want, and whether it’s Zoom, Facebook, Instagram, FaceTime, or by phone, we’ll take the time to uncover your desires and goals and develop a customized plan to ensure you achieve them.


2. Virtual Home Tours

Once we know what you want, we’ll jump into action, scouring the MLS and reaching out to our network of top-producing colleagues to find properties that check the boxes on your wishlist. Between our 3D home tours, videos, incredible photos, and collaborative search tools, you’ll almost feel like you’re visiting the home yourself.


3. Socially Distanced In-Person Tours

We know not everyone is comfortable buying a property sight unseen. That’s why we’ve added rubber gloves to our white-glove service. Once you’ve found a property you’re serious about, we’ll arrange an in-person showing for you and up to one other person from your family. Before you arrive, we’ll have disinfected all surfaces, doorknobs, and keys. We’ll have sanitizer on-hand and be wearing a mask and gloves — we’ll even bring some for you if you need them. After you’ve had time to imagine life in your new home, we’ll answer your questions and address any concerns.


4. Virtual Documents 

If you’re ready to make an offer, we’re ready to make it virtual. Whether you’re signing loan documents or sending earnest payments, there’s no need for you to come to the office. Our mobile-optimized app allows us to streamline workflows, and quickly collaborate on reviews and approvals. There’s no need for mountains of paperwork, and we’ll be happy to guide you through your transaction — one line at a time — if you’d like.


6. It’s Closing Time! 

When it’s time to sign the final documents, we’ll send a certified notary to you. Our notaries mitigate the risk of contamination by meticulously following the latest safety guidelines from the CDC and our state officials. Once the paperwork is in order, we’ll hand you your keys, and you’ll be ready to call your new home, home!
