This is a strange time for everybody, and I have no doubt that all of your inboxes have been flooded with emails from every advertiser you know on how they’re handling business during the COVID-19 outbreak.
Thank you for your patience as I’ve taken time to figure out how to safely continue conducting real estate business during a time when social distancing is a best practice.
Here’s how Homespace is planning to help for the foreseeable future:
I am still a call, text, or email away and am here for anything you need as we navigate through your contract and upcoming moves. We will do as much as we can remotely, and handle the rest by proceeding as planned while keeping in line with the CDC’s recommendations.
RENTERS & BUYERS WITH UPCOMING MOVES OR LEASE EXPIRATIONS
Please contact me to discuss your options. I am working with owners and landlords to conduct virtual tours of vacant and new construction properties, and am in close talks with several apartments in the area to obtain video tours of their available units while their doors are closed to the public.
Until CDC recommendations change, I will not be showing occupied homes or rental units in person out of respect and safety to everyone involved. I will, however, do my very best to arrange FaceTime or virtual showings of any properties you wish to see so long as all parties agree to participate. All new client consultations will be done via phone call or video chat.
SELLERS AND INVESTORS
I am now including Matterport 3D virtual home tours as part of my listing package so that we can make remote showings more interactive and appealing to potential buyers while protecting your home from unnecessary traffic. All listing appointments will be done via video call until the CDC has updated its recommendations.
A note on real estate in 2020
We’re all in the same boat here, and no one can say with certainty how everything will shake out when things settle back down. What I can tell you is that title companies are open and doing remote closings, lenders are still issuing loans, and I am still working and available as your real estate resource, albeit with the above modifications. 998 homes hit the market this week, and as of now real estate in Austin is still moving.
On a personal level, I sincerely hope that all of my past, current, and future clients can stay home as much as possible until things settle down. If, however, you do need to move, please reach out to me and we’ll figure out how to make things work in this unique time.
Stay home. Stay safe. Stay in touch.
