As the national, state, and local efforts to protect us from Coronavirus continue, REALTORS® are working hard to help essential real estate operate well within the government’s safety parameters. According to Baldwin REALTORS® March 2020 Housing Report, the traditional residential market continues to show positive reporting, even amidst an unconventional season. Our local REALTORS® are equipped with tools and training to make home-buying and selling possible for you during this time. Let’s check out some of the most important items a Baldwin REALTOR® brings to the table.
- Personal Care
A Baldwin REALTOR® is a REAL expert, advisor, and advocate that fights for the rights of the homeowner. While social distancing is keeping us physically apart, our REALTORS® understand the importance of checking in on you via phone and video calls to ensure you are getting the care and information you need. This month of April is also Fair Housing Month, so REALTORS® are hyper-aware of the importance of helping all.
- BaldwinREALTORS.com Listing Service
Did you know our database of properties is the most accurate source for Baldwin County? Our REALTORS® utilize this listing service for every residential property type they serve. While listings are syndicated to national websites, often by the time those sites update, the details may have changed again. During this time, a Baldwin REALTOR® has the most up-to-date and accurate information on what is happening – not just with your property – but with the entire local housing market.
- Virtual Showings/Open Houses
Within our listings database, our REALTORS® now have the functionality to provide a link to a property’s “Virtual Open House”. With safety as an utmost concern, this affords people the chance to get an almost lifelike experience of seeing a house for the first time. “Walk” through another house without having to leave the safety of your current residence!
- Digital Document Collaboration
Working with a REALTOR® means access to a breadth of tools that really come in handy right now. According to the National Association of REALTORS®, technology is vitally important as real estate adapts to the new reality of social distancing directives. A Baldwin REALTOR® has access to the technology needed for easy contracts and negotiations with features like eSignatures, document sharing and file storing.
- Online Continuing Education
2020 is a Continuing Education (CE) renewal year for REALTORS®, and Alabama Real Estate Commission has recently approved the ability for agents to get their CE hours through virtual courses. Baldwin REALTORS® is providing weekly opportunities for our local agents to take advantage of this and get the education and training they need right from home with virtual webinar courses. Working with a Baldwin REALTOR® means working with a knowledgeable and supported professional.
These top benefits of using a Baldwin REALTOR® are just a few within a long list. Rather than add stress on yourself during an already stressful season of life, let a Baldwin REALTOR® take on the bulk of the workload that comes with home-buying and selling. We R® here for you, Baldwin County!
