2021 - An Emphasis on Safety

04 January 2021

Buying a home can be stressful under normal circumstances, let alone trying to navigate the process in the middle of a global pandemic. However, given that buying and selling is a consistent need, the world of real estate continues on. According to our panel of RE/MAX Influencers, the following best practices are being offered by RE/MAX agents to help buyers.

  1. Virtual Tours and Deals: A tried and proven tool that has enabled buyers to view properties from the convenience of their living room. Since the beginning of the pandemic, RE/MAX agents have been on the forefront of adapting their tours to be as safe and accessible as possible. This allows potential buyers to walk through the home, room-by-room, giving them a closer look at the home as if they were inside it!

  2. Take Precautions During Home Showings: While respecting social distancing mandates, some buyers may still be interested in doing in-person viewings. Ensuring that all involved feel safe and comfortable is a crucial part of the process during this time, which is why precautions must be taken ahead of viewing appointments. RE/MAX Professionals asks all potential buyers who want to enter the home to wear gloves, a facial mask, and routinely practice proper hand washing or use hand sanitizer.

  3. Do as Much Online Research as Possible: The process of viewing homes in person looks very different from what it once was. Doing online research ahead of the viewing via platforms like can help determine that the home in question has true potential to be ‘the one.’
