A New Way to Shop for Homes in a Virtual World

In a year when we’re learning to do so much remotely, real estate in Santa Barbara is no exception. From going to work to attending school, grocery shopping, and even seeing our doctors online, digital practices have changed the way we live.

This year, rather than delaying their home purchases, buyers – alongside their trusted Santa Barbara real estate professionals – turned to the Internet to do more than just a typical home search. In some cases, they bought homes without even stepping foot inside.

According to NAR, throughout the coronavirus pandemic, one in every 20 homebuyers purchased a house sight-unseen.

How Your Real Estate Agent Will Pave the Way

Today, as your trusted Santa Barbara real estate professional I will use digital practices to help homebuyers and sellers walk through many steps in the process virtually. While following the regulations set forth by theCDC and all local guidelines, this past year, agents quickly empowered buyers and sellers with virtual tours, 3D floor plans, high-quality photos, videos, online open houses, and more. For those who had homebuying and selling needs in 2020, trusted advisors made it possible in many markets.

In true 2020 fashion, virtual practices helped buyers safely narrow down their top choices, so they didn’t have to unnecessarily walk into more homes than they needed to see throughout the process. At a time when health and safety are top priorities, current technology is making it possible for buyers and sellers to move their real estate plans forward at their own comfort levels, even through a worldwide pandemic. For many, this means buyers no longer have to physically tour every home they want to see, and sellers don’t need to open their doors over and over again throughout the process. Safety can come first, and as your trusted Santa Ynez REALTOR I am here to help.

If you’re ready to make a move towards your dream home in Santa Ynez and Santa Barbara County let’s connect to determine the safe and effective options to buy or sell a home.
