It’s no secret that COVID-19, or the coronavirus, has impacted us all, and continues to bring about many changes to our daily routines.
At Florida East Coast Real Estate, we care deeply about our community, public safety, and the well-being of our customers and our real estate family.
We wanted to share some of the steps that we’re taking to keep the Space Coast’s busy real estate industry moving while protecting our buyers, sellers and real estate agents alike.
Our agents are all currently working from home and are using protective equipment, such as latex gloves. We’re taking steps to prevent the spread of COVID-19 by using hand sanitizers and wiping down surfaces and contact points like door handles before and after showings.
In many cases, we’ve been able to implement virtual walk-thru showings and video tours, allowing our prospective buyers to explore a property while staying at home, helping to prevent the spread of the virus.
Jon Scott Santy, Broker Associate with Florida East Coast Real Estate, said the marketing vehicles that the company already utilizes at Florida East Coast Real Estate have proven very helpful during the COVID-19 health crisis.
“Our expert staging and professional photography allow our properties to show at their very best, online and throughout virtual marketing channels,” said Santy.
“After all, you only have one shot at making a first impression and a picture is worth a thousand words. Our full-motion video tours provide an exceptional view of homes, inside and out, and provide exposure for our properties on a global level. Video tours are one of the most popular marketing vehicles among prospective buyers.
“We will continue to utilize video technology to enhance the exposure of our listings and ensure the safety of our customers on both sides of the home buying and selling process,” said Santy.
The Florida East Coast Real Estate website is one of the most popular real estate websites on the Space Coast, providing exposures for our listings 24 hours a day, seven days a week from the safety of your home.
The information on our website is updated up-to-the-minute, unlike Zillow or Trulia which takes time to report changes to MLS.
“At Florida East Coast Real Estate, we’re committed to helping our agents successfully provide excellent customer service for their clients, while taking steps for everyone’s health and safety,” said Hendricks.
“Remember, practice social distancing, avoid crowds, keep washing your hands and we will all get through this. We are all in this together.”
