A lot of people are asking if they should still try to sell their home in today’s climate. After all, we are all staying in place and practicing social distancing. Granted, it’s harder to show property now. But, with virtual marketing, proper protocols, and the right strategy, it’s still possible to sell a property. Recently, I listed a property in Kaimuki. Prior to going on the market, we had it professionally cleaned and staged. We hired a great photographer, Jake Vaughn. He took amazing photos, plus he provided both 3-D and drone photography. The 3-D photography allows buyers to view the property almost as if they were walking through it. It gives them a chance to get an amazing view of the space. It also provides a great floor plan, which we posted on-line through various media. The drone shots provide a great aerial view of the property and the surrounding homes and the neighborhood.
Due to virtual marketing, good old-fashioned networking, and smart strategies, the property is getting good exposure. The interest is high, and we are confident that we will sell the property at the highest and best price in today’s current market.
Of course, we are very mindful of the need to practice social distancing. We abide by government mandates. Though real estate services are considered “essential services,” we are very mindful that safety comes first. Our main focus is to protect our clients, their properties, and our community. Showings are staggered, buyers are screened, and no one is allowed in without proper vetting and an upfront agreement to abide by the rules. Proper sanitization is a must — before and after a showing. Safety and health come first. Thankfully, everyone has been very conscientious and respectful. And, understanding.
1441 16th Avenue (MLS #202005153) is a great example of how smart marketing can provide maximum exposure to your property. After all, we’ve had 15 showings in three days! With the right strategy, tools, tech, and team, selling your home even in today’s climate, is possible.
