Even though Covid-19 has put British Columbia into a state of emergency, we know that many of our clients are worried about how this is affecting their properties
It’s been a surreal experience to follow the news in the last few weeks. As everyone keeps their eyes glued to social media for a Covid-19 update from Dr. Bonnie Henry and her all-star sign language interpreter, the real estate market is still in action. We have been keeping up to date with all provincial recommendations and guidelines to protect our team and clients. One of the best things about real estate is that just about anywhere with a data signal can be your office, so we have all been practicing our social distancing and working from home. To be there for you, we need to band together to take these steps of protection while still being the best special agents.
What about all the documents that go into a real estate deal?
We’ve hated paper for LONG time. To reduce any change of spreading Covid-19, we are ensuring that all deals are completed electronically. Need a signature? Well if you have a smartphone, then you have a scanner. Even better, use one of the many PDF editing apps that lets your sign and send your documents with the touch of a finger. All property and strata documents that we collect are all stored electronically. Finally, you know that the Macnab Marketing Machine has got you covered for all the online promotional blitz.
Property Showings & Viewings
We will continue with our regularly schedule showings while practicing social distancing. We ensure that all spaces are fully cleaned, sanitized, and wiped down. Don’t worry, we’ll include soap in each bathroom to wash your hands and reduce the Covid-19 risk. Please note that some amenities in condo buildings and apartments may not be able to be viewed due to strata decisions on health.
Whether it’s pumping music, playing beer pong, or offering tasters of Vancouver Craft Beer, we love hosting open houses. Unfortunately, due to concerns of Covid-19, we will no longer be hosting open houses. At times we have had open houses that will clear through over 200 people in 2 hours. With average group sizes of 3-4, there will not be enough space to remain 2 metres away from each other while inside a unit. Don’t worry though, our virtual video tours and 3D Floorplans are top notch and the next best thing! Can’t wait until we’ll be able to do this in Virtual Reality. We are ensuring to follow the guidelines set by the Real Estate Council of British Columbia.
What to do in the meantime?
We are still always available by phone, e-mail, or text. Contact any of our Special Agents for any additional information. If you are stuck at home self-isolation from Covid-19, why not take a look at some of our fav Luxury Homes in Coquitlam or follow us for updates on the gram. @themacnabs
