In the past year the way we buy things has changed greatly, including the way we buy real estate. Buying a home sight unseen has become more common than ever because of the pandemic. COVID regulations & restrictions have prevented or impeded traditional house-hunting trips and the new trends in the real estate market has created additional time pressures.
Many buyers are needing or wanting to purchase property in different cities, provinces, and even countries which has led to an increase in buying remotely. It's not just how we buy things that have changed, it's also why. Changes in employment, retirement plans, moving to be closer to family, or looking for a slower pace have been bringing buyers to Nova Scotia. With quarantine rules and travel restrictions changing constantly, buyers are finding the need to embark on their real estate journey remotely.
We are committed to making this process as easy and seamless as possible, from the initial meeting to closing day and beyond, we'll be here for you every step of the way! With our team of experienced agents and local experts we'll be your eyes on the ground and make sure nothing is left unchecked to ensure that when you are finally able to settle into your new East Coast Oasis it will be exactly as you expected. To achieve this utilize all available technologies to allow for a fully virtual transaction.
Virtual Meetings - We use various platforms to connect with clients such as FaceTime, Skype, and Zoom. With fewer face-to-face meetings it's important to get as much information about your needs and wants in a property.
Virtual Showings & Tours - There are many ways to view properties virtually. We can utilize the same platforms that we use for meetings to take you on a video tour of a property. Along with the photos provided by the listing agent we can capture additional photos and videos of the property for future reference. Many agents make virtual tours available of their properties and we have the hardware to create them so that you can view the home in 3D as well as the floor plan.
Digital Signatures - We use DocuSign to get digital signatures on any document to allow remote offers and amendments.
As well as the technology we use, we also offer the full concierge service to our clients. With over 30 years experience in Real Estate and a robust team of local experts we can handle just about any problem that may arise. Buying from a distance seems daunting but having a trusted team by your side will make all the difference. Contact us today to set up your first virtual meetings!
