How Technology Is Enabling the Real Estate Process

Today’s everyday reality is pretty different than it looked at the beginning of the year. We’re getting used to doing a lot of things virtually, from how we work remotely to how we engage with our friends and neighbors. One of the big changes we’re adapting to is how the common real estate transaction is being revised. Technology is making it possible for many to continue the quest for homeownership, an essential need for all, especially through the evolving health crisis. While all regulations vary by state and locality , here’s a look at some of the new elements of the process (at least in the near-term), due to the country’s revised guidelines and protocols, and what you may need to know about each one if you’re thinking of buying or selling a home. Every market is different, so staying in touch about how these protocols continue to change is more important today than ever before. 1. Virtual Consultations: Instead of heading into an office, you can meet with real estate and lending professionals through video chat. We can still work together to get the process started remotely. 2. Home Searches & Virtual Showings: According to the National Association of Realtors (NAR), the Internet is one of the three most popular information sources buyers use when searching for homes. Real estate professionals have access to listing information and can help you request a virtual showing when you’re ready to start looking. This means you can walk through digital tours of homes on your wish list while keeping you and your family safe.
