Real Estate is Open, but Different!

I hope and trust that you and your loved ones are staying safe and healthy during this sobering moment in our history.  Events over the past few weeks are having a tremendous impact on communities throughout our area, across the country and around the world. We are about one month into our new reality surrounding COVID19, and in a continued effort to “flatten the curve” and to keep the public safe, the Government of Alberta has issued further restrictions on social gatherings as well as face-to-face interactions. To extend this effort, all non-essential businesses have been forced to close.  

What about real estate? Understanding that many consumers are caught in a life circumstance that requires them to make a move or sell a home, real estate has been deemed an essential service. But, it’s not business as usual. CIR REALTY has adapted quickly to put the safety of our clients at the forefront and we have modified our practices accordingly. All traditional Open Houses have been cancelled, but Virtual Open Houses have become popular and potential buyers can watch a live streamed tour of the home to ensure no important feature is missed. This concept works similar for Virtual Showings as well.

If at any time throughout the process you want to see an interesting property in person, know that this is still an option.  In these cases, lights will be left on, doors and closets left open and clients are asked to not touch anything.  If additional safety measures are requested, I can provide gloves, masks, booties and hand sanitizer before entering and leaving a home.  When it comes time to draw up the paperwork, everything can be done digitally for further protection.

With the "new normal" of social distancing and social isolation we've all discovered that doesn’t mean disconnecting, we’ve simply modified how we interact,  As things evolve, I am also modifying the way I work to provide essential real estate services in the safest manner possible. So for now, I am "virtually" here to help, answer, advise and work for you. Call email or text me anytime!  We're all in this together. Let's continue to connect and share a hopeful outlook.

Best,
Pamela
