Overcoming the Challenges of Social Distancing with Technology


In these rapidly changing times where social distancing and frequent hand washing have evolved as the daily mantra, the COVID-19 virus is reshaping the way real estate pros hold open houses, list homes, transact, submit buyers’ offers and even scan documents.

Fortunately, there’s a wide array of real estate technology that can keep the transaction personalized while helping keep both the agent and the client protected.

Ways Real Estate Brokers and Agents Can Weather the Current Market Conditions:

How to Keep Communication Personal.

According to dotloop integrations partner BombBomb, video in email can translate into an 80%+ increase in responsiveness among its clients. Make sure to include all the standard features like bedroom count and property size, open house details and your contact information, but also use the opportunity video affords to tell a story.

Low attendance at your open house? Create a virtual walk-through.

A wide array of virtual and 3D tech options let agents and clients skip the in-person open house altogether. While a virtual open house can’t replace an in-home visit, tech-enabled tours help homebuyers make more informed decisions and narrow their selection. Others are inviting buyers to tour homes using interactive FaceTime calls on their phones or Facebook Live on social to show prospective buyers listings in real-time.

How to stay organized and keep deals on track.

Tech tools can help keep you, your admins and clients organized and on task. Digital board organizers like Trello help teams collaborate and organize projects into drag-and-drop digital cards to help visualize progress. Another great tool is dotloop’s Task Manager, which allows you to keep deals moving by assigning tasks to yourself and other people in the transaction.

What are some dotloop features that could help while working from home?

While dotloop is designed to streamline all online collaboration, there are some features that can come in handy during this time when many are working from home and social distancing is encouraged.
