REVISED Internal Remarks

Here is the wording for the internal remarks section of our listings in MLS and ShowingTime instructions:

COVID-19: Due to nationwide concerns about COVID-19 & as a courtesy to home sellers, please do not schedule showings if the buyer’s agent or buyers exhibit cold/flu-like symptoms or meet any of the criteria for self-quarantine mandated by the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention. By proceeding with scheduling a showing, you are acknowledging this requirement & agreeing you are not aware of any issues of this nature.

Embracing Technology for Virtual Showings


We live in a different world, but that has not stopped buyers and sellers from wanting to engage with the real estate market. The economic realities of the COVID-19 crisis are giving some sellers reason to close the deal, and many buyers see “shelter in place” orders as motivation to find a home that they truly love. While Coronavirus precautions have made it impossible to conduct business in the traditional way in many markets, innovative sales associates are pivoting to virtual showings and open houses to keep business moving.

We are all navigating uncharted waters these days, so don’t be discouraged if this is your first time using virtual experiences to market homes. Your clients will likely be happy that you’re doing everything you can to market their home in a safe way, and nobody expects virtual tech to work flawlessly every time. The trick is to keep at it, practice, and develop your skills. Creating a simple script for virtual experiences can help you feel more comfortable and confident in front of the camera when you’re getting started.
