How Technology Is Enabling the Real Estate Process

April 8th, 2020 7:25 PM by Taydus Taydus, AHWD, CNE, CRS, GRI

Today’s everyday reality is pretty different than it looked just a few weeks ago. We’re learning how to do a lot of things in new ways, from how we work remotely to how we engage with our friends and neighbors. Almost everything right now is shifting to a virtual format. One of the big changes we’re adapting to is the revisions to the common real estate transaction, which all vary by state and locality. Technology, however, is making it possible for many of us to continue on the quest for homeownership, an essential need for all.

As of today, 4/8/2020, Here in Colorado we are under a Shelter in Place order to keep everyone safe.  This order does not allow us to meet face to face with our clients at this time.  This means no in person showings, meetings, or open houses.  But thanks to technology, we are able to conduct business and continue to sell and list homes.  

PLEASE NOTE: The real estate landscape is changing day by day, so this information could be yesterday's  news by tomorrow, but for today, this is how we are proceeding. 

Although buying and selling real estate is still possible, I have advised my clients to hold off until it is safe to meet in person.  If you are reading this and are in dire need of buying a home or selling your home, please reach out to me; there are ways I can still help you, albeit from a distance.  

What does this distancing look like if you are buying or selling your home:

  • You will not physically be able to view properties
  • You will not be be able to do a final walk through in person
  • You will not be able to meet with a home inspector at the home
  • Your closing will be remote, or possibly via a drive up situation
  • You will not be able to attend or host an open house

Obviously buying or selling is not ideal during these times, however it IS doable ;) 

Both myself and WK Real Estate are set up to work with you remotely.  Through the use of technology, we can host virtual walk throughs, and meet via online platforms such as Zoom.

Most importantly, stay safe, stay home if you can, and stay healthy.

And last but not least, thank you to all of our first responders!  You are appreciated beyond measure!
