How To: Social Distancing in Real Estate Practice - Walk-Throughs

How To: Social Distancing in Real Estate Practice - Walk-Throughs

While most real estate practitioners here are following the guidelines of the county's requirements - no open houses, no showings - we do still have clients who are in Escrow and Closing. My county has acknowledged the importance of agents accompanying their Buyer clients to walk-throughs and Closings but, we are mandated to practice proper social distancing and hand hygiene. 

 

Today, one of my buyer couples who have bought and sold now, 4 properties with me, had their final walk-through before their 8AM Closing in the morning. It was my first 'outing' in over 2 weeks and I will say that it felt good! However, it was all I could do not to hug them - I had no idea how hard that part would be! And, I was well-equipped - gloves, Clorox wipes and hand sanitizer. Before they arrived, the door handles, light switches and closet & drawer knobs were wiped down. THEN, we practiced at least 6-feet distancing and used gloves and Clorox wipes to touch anything in the house. 

 

Social Distancing Walk-Through

 

We were taking front elevation shots when several neighbors stopped by to meet their new neighbors. Of course, we were all pleased that they kept 6-feet distance and no one extended a hand to greet their new neighbors! No elbow or fist bumps, no high-fives; just waves and excited conversation about how social their neighborhood is and how much my clients will love it there. 

 

So, our jobs can be done - but, I will say that going through a vacant house with other people, even one that is a decent size, you have to be very careful to maintain that 6-foot distance. Imagine the home with furniture? I am still a big believer in doing virtual tours for buyers until this is all over. 

 

Stay healthy & save everyone!
