Times have been really weird. When we’d normally be balancing real estate and having so many friends in for South by Southwest, we are instead making sure we can do our jobs and keeping ourselves, families, and friends safe.
This is a day by day thing, but the COVID-19 event has not stopped real estate. People still need to move for whatever reason. And Moxie is here to help. Believe it or not, homes continue to receive multiple offers. Interest rates are at historical lows. If you’ve been thinking about a move, this might be a good time.
How can we help you safely? First, we can FaceTime or WhatsApp our appointments with you – especially those first buyer and seller appointments that we’d normally do over coffee or lunch. Maybe it will even help us get over ourselves and how we “look” on video. LOL. And we already used a lot of tech in our process–docusign, etc. We’ve even helped several clients buy on the basis of FaceTime walk throughs. So, we’ve got this!
Moxie was also an early adopter of using floorplan and Matterport walkthroughs on our listings. Matterport creates a 3D walkthrough of your home for a buyer to view online so that they don’t can get a better idea of what your property looks like–and only visit if it seems like it will fit their needs (see the links below for virtual tours that include Matterport walk throughs). Our photographers are amazing and will use safe health measures in your home by wearing gloves and not touching your lamps or light switches. We won’t hold open houses at this time — and won’t until we think they can be held open safely.
We are happy to show houses by appointment. One of us will meet you at the house to open it and make sure it is ready. We’ll keep our safe distance during your viewing. Then we’ll close it up, etc. We can then talk on the phone to work through any questions and issues and, if its the right house, we’ll use electronic signatures to get your offer in.
Most lenders can conduct the transaction completely online. For closing, we can go to the title office or have a mobile notary or online notary (if it will work for your lender).
In short, we are taking steps to stay healthy, but are still here to SMARTLY serve you.
