Social Distancing is a Topic most of us never really thought about until recently. Many of my friends and clients are reluctant to look at houses or inestment properties during the “Shelter in Place Period”. In many cases with modern technolgy there are alternatices like Virtual Tours, Facetime, or Skype.
With these technologies you can get a pretty good idea what a property is like without leaving your house. With these technologies your real estate agent can remain pretty isolated by using a lockbox touring the house by themselves and either sharing the information live with you or sending a video after the fact.
For clients that are far away. I have been using these same tolls to help people make their intial decision about wheter to make an offer for years. Once the property is in escrow there will be time to come up with a safe way to see the property if desired during the escrow period.
