How To Keep Your Family Safe When You Have Showings At Your Home
We offer online consultations.
In accordance with social distancing measures, we can help you stage your home without meeting in person. For occupied homes, you have the option of an e-consultation. For vacant homes, we are able to provide a proposal without a site visit, and it is not necessary for you to be present for installation.
Set up a hand-washing station.
If you have hand sanitizer, place a bottle on a table in your entryway along with a sign that reads: “To protect the homeowners and other buyers, please use hand sanitizer and try to avoid touching things in the home.
Turn on all lights and lamps and open all blinds and draperies.
Not only does this make rooms feel bigger, it keeps buyers from touching your light switches.
Open all doors so buyers won’t touch your door handles.
Put toilet lids down and fold the end of the toilet paper roll into a triangle.
Then you will know if someone used the bathroom.
When you arrive home after showings, use a disinfecting wipe
on all exterior door knobs, stair railings, light switches that have been turned off, bathrooms that were used, and anything else that looks like it was moved.
Cancel showings if anyone is sick or has been exposed to the coronavirus.
Make it clear that you will NOT allow sick buyers, Realtors, or anyone else who is ill into your home, and reschedule showings if your family is sick.
Limit showings to one buyer group/family unit at a time.
Maintain social distancing throughout showings.
