We’re Committed to Keeping You Safe
In response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, we’re staying up-to-date with the CDC, Michigan and local updates to keep you safe. There will be a market this spring and summer. People still have needs and desires that cause them to buy or sell real estate. We can still do our job as Realtors safely as long as we both take precautions.
Physical showings of real estate will be legal after April 13 under Michigan Governor Whitmer’s Executive Order 2020-21.
Most of the buying and selling of real estate can be efficiently handled remotely. Our business has for 30 years specialized in selling premium waterfront property using professional websites with engaging story telling, fine photos and videos, and extensive local, regional and national marketing.
Listing, negotiation, contracts, deposits, and closings are all done remotely now because of this virus. Showing homes presents a different set of problems. Here is how we are dealing with them:
Safety procedures include:
- Replacing most on-site tours with video “open houses” for preliminary showings
- Removing shoes before entering your house.
- Using hand sanitizer before and after the showing.
- Wearing gloves during showings.
- Asking clients to ride in their own cars, not ours.
- Maintaining six-foot distances between our agents and clients.
- Not permitting handshaking or direct physical contact of any kind.
When a qualified prospect asks us to visit your home, if you are not feeling well or have a temperature over 100 degrees we ask that you to notify us, so we can reschedule the appointment while you consult with a Doctor.
Have your property ready to show. Our goal is not to touch anything while we're on the property. We make a maximum effort to see that the prospect does not touch anything either.
Please keep a six-foot distance between yourself and our agents. If you prefer, leave the home until the showing is finished. We will always call when a showing is complete, and we have left the property.
We are flexible regarding rescheduling or cancellations due to the Covid-19 outbreak. Many of our best prospects arrive from distant places, but health and safety is the first priority.
Marketing in the best locations is expensive. You are welcome to supplement the funds available to market your property. That opens up additional regional and national opportunities to showcase what you have and can speed up the process.
Closings take place at a title company. No one is required to attend. Everything can be done remotely and efficiently using overnight mail, secure documents, and secure methods of transmission.
Thank you for your support and cooperation in overcoming this global challenge with us.
