COVID impacts in Massachusetts Real Estate
The COVID-19 crisis is undeniable and it has affected society on a global scale. Real Estate has seen a good share of changes, and it’s important to understand what those changes look like in order to achieve the best results.
One of the first things that were canceled was the use of open house showings and this used to be quite popular in the state. The reason for this is that everyone is trying to maintain social distancing and open houses are a big risk.
The alternative to the open house is to create virtual open houses and some agents are just using their phones with video streaming to provide this service. This is a clever way to adapt to the situation and it allows potential buyers to take a look at the property.
Private shows and general contractor inspections are still available, but proper precautions are needed to ensure the safety of the people who interact during these situations.
The coronavirus pandemic is changing the way we conduct business in real estate, but there is no stopping this industry thanks to technology and with a little help from hand sanitizers, facemasks and social distancing.
