With calls for social distancing and many businesses temporarily closing their doors, there is a great deal of uncertainty when it comes to real estate. If you are trying to buy or sell right now, here are some tips to help you make it through!

GO DIGITAL

Instead of opting for an open house, see if you can do a guided tour via Facetime or video marketing.

SANITIZE

If you are still allowing tours of your home or attempting to tour homes, make sure you are taking all sanitary precautions. Offer hand soap for your home tour and ensure you are sanitizing all surfaces a potential buyer may come into contact with, such as door knobs and counter tops. If you are touring a home, make sure you maintain social distancing practices with the agent and avoid touching anything you do not need to.

DOWNSIZE

Instead of having an open house, consider having only scheduled showings for your home or only participating in scheduled viewings if you are looking to buy.
