Still, this isn’t “business as usual,” and there’s no way we will come out of this unchanged. Here are three ways COVID-19 is impacting the real estate market:
Greater emphasis on virtual tours. People were already buying and selling homes online before the pandemic, but delivering a memorable first impression digitally is becoming more valuable than ever. The convenience and safety offered by virtual tours make them a high priority for both buyers and sellers.
Ongoing enhancements to real estate services has resulted in a user experience that couldn’t be imagined five years ago. From cool tools on royallepage.ca to completing transactional documents online, it’s never been easier to buy or sell a property from the comfort of your own home.
Health and safety is a priority. The rules of social distancing have shown us how resourceful we can be from afar. Digital signatures on offers and video calls with clients continue to become the norm.
