COVID-19 Updates: Real Estate Services Deemed “Essential”
As of March 31st, Gov. Greg Abbott has declared real estate to be an essential business that can continue operating while practicing social distancing. With this in mind, we wanted to assure you that we are open for business and our agents have the ability to serve your real estate needs. Through this time, we will take advantage of technologies, some of which we’ve been using for years and others that we have recently adopted, to ensure that all of your needs are met.
For the time being we are recommending that our agents show homes virtually using Zoom Meetings, Facetime, Skype, Google Hangouts, etc. While in-person showings are possible, they should only be done when absolutely necessary.
For years, our company has used e-signature technology and each of our REALTORs are trained on how to write offers and obtain signatures while following social distancing guidelines.
Each inspector has their own rules and guidelines that they follow, but we do know that they are inspecting homes and inspection reports can all be delivered electronically. Our agents also have the ability to obtain estimates on all the needed repairs in under 24 hours without sending many different contractors through your home. If you choose to make these repairs through our partner, you can delay paying repair costs until closing.
3D Listing Tours
We’ve purchased a state-of-the-art camera and partnered with the leader in 3D tour software. Our agents can provide your home with a tour that allows buyers to experience what it is like to walk through your home without having to set foot outside of their own home. Here is an example of the 3D tour in action:
Earnest money can be sent in a variety of ways including wiring it from your bank. Please DO NOT wire any money without verbally confirming the wiring instructions with your agent. Wire fraud can be an issue in this industry and we have everything in place to protect you.
Virtual Document Review
Using our virtual meeting software we can hold your hand through the document review process. Rest assured that our experts will be there with you to answer every question you have and guide you through the process.
We work with the best title companies in the business and they are all putting in processes and procedures that can get you closed without putting your health in danger or at risk. Ask your agent for more details.
Just want to avoid the hassle all together?
We can sell your home to our investor partners through our proprietary FLEX MOVE Program. Our agents can quickly collect multiple offers on your home without having to show, stage or prepare your home for marketing. Ask your agent about FLEX MOVE.
