According to National Association of Realtors, they conducted a flash survey of members on the impact of the coronavirus on their market. The survey was delivered to a random sample of 89,813 members. Twenty-seven percent of members were able to complete nearly all aspects of transactions while respecting the social distance guidelines. With minor modifications such as using masks and gloves, 40 percent felt person-to-person interactions were still required.
Since the pandemic is not yet over, as a safety precaution, the recommendations include coordinating showings with the sellers. Some showings are not allowed when the property is not vacant. So a good workaround is to set an appointment to see the house when the sellers are, for example, out to the grocery store or away for the whole day.
Also, during the podcast, Barry stated that the use of technology has become the new norm in conducting real estate transactions. NAR Statistics supports this showing how realtors conduct business using technology tools with COVID-19. Among the most common services and most popular online tools are: Live Videos, Social Media, E-Closing Technology, E-Signatures, Virtual Tours, Messaging Apps, Webex/Zoom.
