Showings and Open Houses During the Coronavirus Crisis

 

How do we make sellers and buyers feel more comfortable about entering and viewing homes during the coronavirus outbreak?

One way is by providing clear guidelines of what buyers and selling agents should do when they enter a home, and what sellers should do after each showing. For instance some agents are using a flyer posted on the door of their listing or in the entry way that clearly spells out showing instructions. (Some agents are also adding this language to their MLS remarks with Broker Approval)

Some sample language:

  • Selling brokers and buyers should wash their hands upon entering our home or use hand sanitizer prior to entering the house.
  • Selling brokers and buyers should refrain from touching counter tops, surfaces or door knobs in the home.
  • Listing brokers or sellers should wipe down all surfaces in the home after the buyer exits.

Joshua Smith's Mega Open House Strategy

 

Would you like a way to quickly ramp up your real estate business (even if you have zero listings and no budget)?

Listing agents who host strategically timed open houses aren't just advertising their listings they are marketing their listings to the critical "backlog of buyers".  

“I usually list properties on a Thursday or Friday, then hold an open house on Saturday or Sunday.
