Selling Your House with Today’s Technology

If you're thinking about selling your house in today's climate, it's helpful to know what technologies and protocols buyers expect.

In a survey by realtor.com, people thinking about selling their houses today indicated they’re generally willing to allow their agent and some potential buyers inside, but only under the right conditions. With the current safety guidelines and technology options recommended by the National Association of Realtors (NAR), real estate agents are well versed in using safe and effective virtual practices and emerging technology throughout the process. So, if you need to sell your house now, what digital options should you use to make sure you and your potential buyers stay safe throughout the process?

Helpful Technologies

Working with a trusted professional who’s skilled with today’s changing virtual practices may help you win big. While always abiding by state and local regulations, agents know exactly what today’s buyers need, and how to put the necessary digital steps in place. For example, according to the same survey, when asked to select the technology that would be most helpful when deciding on a new home, here’s what today’s homebuyers said, in order of preference:
  • Virtual tour of the home
  • Accurate and detailed listing information
  • Detailed neighborhood information
  • High-quality listing photos
  • Agent-led video chat

Safety First

When it’s time to show your house in person, agents are also able to regulate the process, based on the recommendations given by NAR, to help you proceed safely. Here are a few of the guidelines, understanding the top priority should always be to obey state and local restrictions first:
  • Limit in-person activity
  • Require guests to wash their hands or use an alcohol-based sanitizer
  • Remove shoes or cover with booties
  • Follow CDC guidance on social distancing and wearing face coverings

Bottom Line

In this era of life, things are shifting quickly, so virtual seller strategies may be a game-changing option for you. Let’s connect so you can safely and effectively navigate through all that’s evolving when it comes to making your next move.
