WE LOVE REVIEWS LIKE THIS!

We really appreciate receiving comments like this from our clients and we thank them for putting their trust in us.

“We wanted to thank you very much for the incredible job your team did selling our home. You made it look easy, but we are well aware of the hours you put in marketing it especially in the very difficult times we faced with COVID19. You were a pioneer in the virtual open house and we loved watching it. We were very impressed with how well you kept us informed every step along the way and you listened to us and guided us expertly.

Their home went on the market the day the province declared a state of emergency and essentially shut down due to Covid-19.

But their home SOLD!

Certainly Covid-19 has changed the way things are done in real estate.

We took full advantage of this and implemented new safety precautions, limited the number of showings and moved open houses online. We held what I believe was the first virtual open house in the Ottawa Board. This was done on “Facebook Live” and was a great success with 58 viewers and 3 agents logging in to watch as I walked through the house describing the home to the viewers.

Far more than would drop in to traditional open houses.

It is a fabulous way to do an open house as viewers get to see the house as it really is and not just from looking at professional photos.

We saved that video, put it up on YouTube, and then attached it to their MLS listing for both agents and potential clients to look at as well.

Much of the paperwork was signed electronically as we have a special program called Dotloop which enables this to be completed on your phone or computer.

They were super clients who made sure their home was ready and sanitized for every showing. They provided, gloves and masks and extra sanitizer as well. All lights were turned on, doors open etc- there was no need for buyers to have to touch anything. After a showing they went through their home again making sure everything was sanitized again.

There are plenty of very serious buyers right now, but home inventory remains very low. Homes are listing and selling every day in the areas we work and it can be done very safely.

If you have any questions about the market or the safety measures in place, give us a call at 613-897-6839.

Helping You To Keep Up To Date

I hope everyone is staying safe and doing their best to maintain the 6 ft or 2-meter physical distance if you have to go out.

If you live in Kemptville-North Grenville, North and South Dundas, Cardinal and the surrounding Township or Russell-Embrun and rural Ottawa (Osgoode and Rideau wards), several grocery stores, restaurants, hardware stores and others offer takeout or curbside pickup, and some will deliver. Be sure to check with them.

On both of our Facebook pages:

Beardsley Real Estate Team: HERE  and Ottawa Country Homes and Lifestyles: HERE  we try to keep the above communities up to date on what is happening while supporting local businesses as well.

We post municipal and provincial announcements, restaurant and store updates, community posts, hospital and police posts, as well as a few recipes and items of interest that might help to make staying at home a bit more interesting.

“Like” or “follow” one or both of those pages and you can keep up to date along with us.

If you have other stores or restaurants that you would like to see added, drop us a note on Facebook or send a text to 613-897-6839 or email BeardsleyTeam@outlook.com and we can add them.

Stay safe everyone!

NEW SELLER AND BUYER PROTOCOLS

First, I want to say that I hope you are all safe and exercising care when going out for essential items. For those of you working at home for the first time, I can say from experience that it will be a learning exercise for you, and it does take awhile to adjust and stick to a schedule. Both Bev and I do love having our office in our home- so does D’Arcy as he gets a lot more attention.

These are certainly trying times for many and the very nature of the pandemic has required a lot of adjustments, especially in the real estate industry. On our part we have severely restricted face to face contacts and monitor each other closely.

I encourage you to “follow” and “Like” one or both of our business real estate pages. These are The Beardsley Real Estate Team or Ottawa Country Homes and Lifestyles. They focus on our main business area (Kemptville-North Grenville, North and South Dundas, Russel-Embrun, Osgoode and Rideau Wards. On them we post municipal advisories, provincial and federal advisories, notices from local businesses including grocery stores, restaurants, sports associations, community groups, retirement communities and much more. It is one way to keep up to date on what is happening in this area as well as Ottawa as our service area includes Osgoode and Rideau wards.

Please check on local seniors in your area to make sure they are OK. Many can’t get out to shop and others need to hear a friendly caring voice.

Please support your local businesses as many are going through a difficult time right now. They are often the lifeblood of smaller communities and we need to help them going forward.

We want to keep you safe as well as ourselves safe.

Our team has implemented new protocols for both buyers and sellers.

Seller Protocols

  1. Virtual video listing presentations and consultations using ZOOM, FaceTime or Skype.
  2. Digital documentation and Electronic Signatures for the entire process of selling your home.
  3. Antibacterial and Sanitizing processes to keep you safe while your home is on the market and being shown.
  4. Option of virtual video showings to buyers.
  5. Virtual open house events so that buyers can tour your home with out risk to your family. I will add that we have been leaders in the use of video to market homes for a few years now; with over 800 videos on YouTube. This past weekend we held what I believe was the first Facebook Live virtual open house in our area. 58 people and some agents tuned in for the virtual tour of the seller’s home. This is something worthwhile continuing after conditions return to normal.
  6. Negotiating offers with digital documents and video conference discussions.

Buyer Protocols

  • Virtual video initial buyer consultations using ZOOM, FaceTime or Skype.
  • Digital documentation and Electronic Signatures for the entire process of buying your home.
  • Insisting on the use of antibacterial and sanitizing processes to keep you safe while looking at homes- including the wearing of gloves etc.
  • An option for virtual video tours of homes you are interested in to cut down on the number of physical showings
  • Negotiating offers with digital documents and video conference discussions.

We follow three of the top real estate coaches and trainers in North America, and in some cities the above protocols are being implemented as well.

There are other items being considered and I expect some the above will become common practice once Covid-19 is over as they are simply a smarter way of doing business.

    Stay safe everyone!
