The Future of Real Estate

With the COVID pandemic stretching on, many people wonder what a “new normal” will look like. For us at Think, we’re committed to the safety of our clients, agents, and the public, and we make every decision with the safety of those around us foremost in our minds. To that end, we’ve implemented a number of procedures to ensure that our clients and the public stay as safe as possible.

When you list your home with Think we use every smart marketing tool to find a buyer for your home as quickly as possible with as little in-person activity as possible. Instead of putting a listing online and leaving it open for showings anytime, all Think listings require an appointment to view, even if it is vacant. This ensures that agents and clients don’t have to worry about other people being inside at the same time as them. Before making an appointment, prospective buyers are required to review all online information about the home so that only serious buyers get inside.

Floor Plans: 

Floor plans provide a clear way for prospective buyers to understand the layout and flow of your home. A simple two-dimensional floor plan is very useful in figuring out if a house is right for someone, so Think now provides a floor plan on every listing.

Matterport Virtual Tours:

Most Think listings take it a step further by using Matterport Virtual Tours to provide an immersive experience for prospective buyers. Matterport tours allow viewers to see a property in 3D. They can navigate from room to room and get an accurate sense for the layout of the home and how it feels to be inside. A Matterport Virtual Tour helps a home stand out from the competition and encourages more people to engage with a listing. This tool is especially important if you continue to live in your home while it’s on the market.

Virtual Open Houses

Open houses are another tool for showcasing your home. But as we’ve said, opening your home up to groups of people is not safe for anyone involved. Think now offers virtual open houses. During a virtual open house a Think agent broadcasts a live tour of your home online, and prospective buyers can ask questions and see the interior of your home in real time.
