Buying During COVID-19

Can I still buy a home right now?

Our agents are staying updated on the latest government and health guidelines regarding stay-at-home orders and social distancing practices.

These restrictions may prohibit you from physically walking through a home with your agent. However, new tools and technology such as Zoom and recorded video tours still allow buyers to see a home.

Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Metro Brokers' services-Metro Brokers Financial, Metro Title Trust/Raymer Law Group, and Metro Brokers Insurance-have also made business adaptations to serve clients virtually.

How can I safely tour a home?

We want you to be comfortable throughout every step of the buying process. That is why our agents have various methods to virtually show you homes:

Recorded video tours

Once you express interest in a home to your agent, you can ask them to visit the home and record a video tour of it. The agent can then share that video with you through Dropbox, Google Drive, via text or messaging services such as WhatsApp, and more.

Before the agent records the tour, be sure to mention any specific features you'd like to see. It's also a good idea to ask them to include portions of the neighborhood in the recording as well.

Live video tours

If you'd prefer to ask your agent questions about the property in real time while they are there showing you video footage of it, a live video tour may be the better option.

Similar to a Facebook or Instagram live video, Zoom enables you to post chat comments on the video in real time. These chats are visible to the person taking the live video.

Your agent would be happy to coordinate and conduct a live video tour for you.
