Thanks for your inquiry. As you may be aware, due to COVID-19 restrictions, safety measures have been put in place by New York State regarding showings. If you are currently working with a REALTOR®, please reach out to them to discuss.
If your home search is just getting started, we're happy to assist you. Most owners are allowing in-person showings, though “casual showings” are discouraged, if not prohibited. Many sellers are requiring a copy of buyers’ preapproval before allowing access for in-person showings. A few are requesting virtual showings only; if so, we can video the property or do a live video call so you can “view” the property yourself.
For in-person showings, masks are required, and gloves and booties/slippers are strongly encouraged. We can also get additional information not available to the general public on any properties you're interested in.
If you are thinking of selling, we can discuss your plans over a video call and talk about the process and how real estate looks in today’s COVID-environment. To get an accurate price range for your property, we can either come for an in-person viewing or you can show us the property virtually on a video call. Our 3D tours and video walkthroughs allow buyers to get a sense of your property without the necessity of seeing in person.
To be proactive in getting you ready to buy or sell your next home, we can video conference with you to talk more personally about your plans. We can also introduce you to local lenders to help you determine your buying power or provide other resources, such as contractors, if needed. Just let us know what works for you—we're here and ready to help.
