With the rapid rise of virtual deals, here are five tools to help homebuyers, sellers and myself stay in touch without ever leaving home. We know that even in the best of times, things can change quickly in real estate, from housing market conditions to new listings hitting and leaving the market. This means an efficient exchange of often time-sensitive information is essential in the decision-making process. Thankfully I have technology at my fingertips, so staying connected has never been easier. From the tried-and-tried (albeit old school) phone call, to video conferencing and more, here’s how you can stay in touch with me without ever leaving home.
Social media is a great tool to digitally connect with me. Add me as a friend on Facebook, or send them a DM on Instagram to keep updated with anything business related or personal.
FaceTime is one of the most convenient ways to connect virtually. Using your cell phone (which likely never leaves your hands these days!) you can call me via video chat. At this time, many agents are using FaceTime and other video chat tools to do everything from showing houses virtually to organizing home inspections and negotiating a deal. Agents often use digital apps to their advantage, and so can home buyers and sellers.
Zoom Video Conference
We all know that there’s nothing quite like meeting someone face-to-face, and when you can’t do that in person, you can do so digitally. Zoom is another great form of video conferencing. While it can be similar to FaceTime, many businesses are option to use this platform as a substitute for face-to-face meetings with clients.
This is another simple yet effective way to stay in touch with me. I am also relying on their phone and other tools to stay in touch with you, just as much as you wish to keep in touch with me! So send me a text or give them a call. I’d be happy to hear from you!
Authentisign Electronic Signatures
I utilize a great system called Authentisign. This electronic signature platform allows us to review and sign documents electronically without putting a pen to paper. When the time comes to sign documents, I prepare and email the documents to you, and they can be legally signed from any web based mobile device, tablet or computer.
