Your agent will need access to your home and buyers that are searching for a new home will need to view your home to determine if they like it or not. Technology has made this easier than ever so there are some unique ways to make all of this easier. Here is what you can expect if you are selling your home during this virtual time.

Start with the agent accessing your home. For first meetings, consider handling them over the phone. When it comes time for the agent to view the home, you could use Facetime or Skype to show them your home or have them come in person while wearing a mask and gloves to do their walkthrough. During the walkthrough, you can stay on opposite sides of the rooms you are in and then continue your conversation outside after they have seen the inside of your home. To prepare your home to be shown on the Internet, a photographer will need access to your home but they can use the same precautions as your agent to limit contact by social distancing and wearing protective equipment.

One way for buyers to get a good sense of your home is by accessing a virtual tour. These tours come in many different formats and allow the buyer to see many photos of your home and in some cases walk buyers through your home as they view the photos so they understand the layout. While these options may not give them the confidence to make an offer, they will allow many buyers to eliminate the house or determine that is likely to be a good fit. Having these virtual options available to buyers will decrease the number of buyers that need to see your home in person.

For buyers that are still not quite sure, an agent could visit the home and show it to them via FaceTime or Skype so there are fewer people in your home. Assuming the buyer likes everything they have seen about your home online, they can then schedule an in-person visit to your home where they will wear masks and gloves and limit touching of surfaces. You should leave doors to all rooms and closets open and all lights on so they don’t have to touch those surfaces while in your home.
