5 Ways Nobul, Online Tools, Can Help You Sell Your Home Virtually

Posted On Tuesday, 29 September 2020 20:51

Thinking about selling your home?  

There’s a lot of preparation that goes into preparing your home for the real estate market, and under normal circumstances, you’d probably feel a little overwhelmed at the thought of showing your home and finding an experienced agent to guide you through the process.

Suffice to say, those apprehensions are probably more elevated today as you navigate the home-selling process during a worldwide health pandemic.  Now you must factor in things like social distancing rules and other red tape regulations that prevent you from selling your home the old fashioned way.

Fortunately, through the use of 3D floor plans, virtual tours, Zoom calls, and online consultations, sellers are provided with more convenience and resources than ever; and they can sell their homes successfully in a virtual world without sacrificing the customer service they deserve.

With help on the way, it’s these kinds of situations where it’s still best to enlist the experts. Visiting websites like Nobul is the first step to finding the best person to do the job.  Here’s how Nobul works and how you can still sell your house successfully in a virtual world. 

Hire an Agent Online

The key to a good experience in real estate is having the right agent.  Whether you find an agent through a platform like Nobul or another means, it is always best to interview them about their previous experience with virtual transactions.  Ask them questions such as, “what virtual programs do you use?” “what’s your marketing plan?” and “how do you keep in contact with potential buyers?”

Through Nobul, sellers need to create an account and then enter some simple information

about where their home is located and what makes it attractive to buyers.  Once they

are ready to submit their property posting, agents will begin reaching out with proposals and the seller can review as many as they want.  They can also compare agent feedback and experience before meeting them (whether that’s online or in person). 

Then, an agent will get to work right away on selling their home for the best price possible.

Prepare Your Home

Although sellers may not be welcoming the same amount of foot traffic into their homes as they normally would for showings or open houses, they should still prepare their home to make it look its best. Declutter, hire a professional staging company, and make sure to keep the lawn manicured, too.  

Potential buyers can still pick up on your home’s flaws via a tablet or from the driveway.

Create a Virtual Online Calendar

Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, many sellers and their agents have opted for virtual showings.  There are several resources out there to get started, but the real trick is to keep your showings organized by setting up a virtual online calendar where interested buyers can click on for a tour alongside an agent.

Some agents have used Facebook Watch Parties.  This feature allows users to share a live video through all their social profiles and with their friends and followers.  Suzanne Damon, a top-selling agent in Manchester, New Hampshire, explains:  “We’ll sit down and go slide by slide and consult with you. If that’s a good fit, let’s take it to the next step.”

Vet Offers

Especially during a time when sellers are trying to limit face-to-face interactions, listing agents may ask if a buyer is pre-qualified to purchase and only limit showings to qualified buyers.  This helps separate the truly interested buyers from the ones who are just casually looking.  Further, sellers can evaluate any offers with help from their agent via online conferencing.

Use Digital Offers and Contracts

Just as agents can complete their listing paperwork electronically, they can also manage offers and contracts virtually. Agents have leveraged e-signature solutions for years, so they’re used to keeping transactions moving quickly toward successful agreements.  Moreover, digital contacts make it easy to complete listing agreements and other related documents from anywhere in just a few minutes. 

If you are weary about allowing buyers into your home, chances are, they are weary about it too.  Today’s technology provides both buyers and sellers with the flexibility to do everything online, without ever having to leave home.
