Is it safe to view homes for sale during Corona? 

Real Estate Agents and real estate sale transactions have been classed as "essential services" in California and most agents are working remotely.  I am showing my listings through professional video, interior videos I take myself on my phone, and through "live virtual open houses."   

How is this done? 

1.  I hire a professional videographer to take video in most of my listings, and I include that in the "MLS" or Multiple Listing Service where listings are shown and syndicated out to all of the listing portals like, Zillow etc. 

2. I create a video of me walking around the house talking about the house.  I can share these videos via email or text to interested parties.

3. I schedule a "live virtual open house" time in the MLS, where I set up a zoom meeting and or Facebook live showing and answer questions that viewers may have. 

4. I also schedule "private" showings for my clients at houses that are on the market.  These properties are vacant when we see them and we all sign a COVID advisory prior to entry, and before we enter the house, we put on gloves, masks, and shoe covers. 

If you have any questions about this process or want to know more-  please contact me
