Shopping for Homes in a Virtual World
In a year when we’re learning to do so much remotely, homebuying is no exception. From going to work to attending school, grocery shopping, and even seeing our doctors online, digital practices have changed the way we live.
This year, rather than delaying their home purchases, buyers – with Ben Belack & Partners – turned to the Internet to do more than just a typical home search. In some cases, they bought homes without even stepping foot inside!
According to NAR (National Association of Realtors), throughout the coronavirus pandemic, one in every 20 homebuyers purchased a house sight-unseen.
Here at Ben Belack & Partners we are using digital practices to help homebuyers and sellers walk through many steps in the process virtually. While following the regulations set forth by the CDC and all local guidelines, this year, we have quickly empowered buyers and sellers with virtual tours, 3D floor plans, high-quality photos, videos, online open houses, and more. For those who had homebuying and selling needs in 2020, we made it possible in many markets.
At a time when health and safety are top priorities, current technology is making it possible for buyers and sellers to move their real estate plans forward at their own comfort levels, even through a worldwide pandemic. For many, this means buyers no longer have to physically tour every home they want to see, and sellers don’t need to open their doors over and over again throughout the process. Safety can come first, and we are here to help.
If you’re ready to make a move, you may not have to press pause on your plans this season. Reach out to us to determine the safe and effective options to buy or sell a home in your area or wherever you’re looking to move.
