"Open House" Tool Kit
Your New Normal "Open House" Tool Kit
We have put together a list of tools to help you overcome the barriers related to the pandemic and safely host your appointments or open houses in the future.*
Virtual Property Website
You want every tool in your toolkit when listing a property in these circumstances. It’s not just a virtual tour. It’s a Matterport 3-D tour and a virtual property website/tour. The 3-D tour is cool and impressive, but it doesn’t necessarily have all the great city and neighborhood details that a virtual property website does. Whether you use the Corefact Virtual Property Website or another, make sure you have details like, walk, transit and bike scores, school information, nearby comps, mortgage calculator, etc. PRO TIP: You can link a Matterport tour to the Corefact virtual property website and vice versa.
Floor signage and a window cling spell out the “House Rules” for buyers viewing properties. These signs make sellers feel more comfortable with people coming into their homes.
Property Flyer Signs
Our classy Property Flyer Signs can be attached to a listed property’s yard sign. These are great anytime and are absolutely appropriate for this unstable situation. Interested buyers can drive up and see this durable oversized property flyer with multiple large photos, all the details of the house and an optional QR code. It also saves you from having to refill flyer boxes and being out unnecessarily.
Since our COVID-19 products have been extremely popular, we have added personalized sign riders to the collection. You can effectively keep the neighborhood up-to-date on the status of your listing, even during times when the whole world is social distancing.
DIY 3-D Tours
Zillow 3D Home app is a great tool that gives buyers an interactive online experience that is more immersive than pictures alone. And your sellers can download the free app and shoot the tour themselves!
Companies like BombBomb make your emails as effective as a face-to-face meeting. You can record videos with your phone or camera and quickly and easily add them to any email. Stand out and rehumanize your email communication to get better results.
By now, everyone’s heard of Zoom meetings. Whether it’s a Google Hangouts, Zoom or other such providers, these live video meetings and gatherings help you stay connected with your clients and leads. Whether you’re hosting a meeting or a video webinar, they are easy to use and affordable.
Hosting a Live Q&A on Facebook is one of the easiest ways to get tons of free reach and exposure on social media. Moreover, it is also one of the few safe ways to stay in contact with your neighborhood and clients during the COVID-19 pandemic. Whether your talking about a listing or just explaining how you're coping, as long as it's genuine, it's a good thing.
High-Quality Photos & Staging
Since home buyers cannot schedule in-person open houses so easily, it is more important than ever to provide consistent, high-quality images and perhaps virtual staging. You may or may not be able to send a photographer or stager to your listing. If you can’t, walk your seller (virtually) through photographing their home and make recommendations for semi-staging their home. Our friends at BoxBrownie can do magic on any photo that needs to be retouched. They also do virtual staging.
