Real estate agents are considered to be essential workers in many areas. Therefore, even the pandemic is not going to make it completely go on a pause. Realtors are one of the frontline heroes who help keep our communities and economy intact. For this reason, there are local safety protocols that we should obey and strictly implement so that we do not compromise ourselves and those around us.
Here are five safety measures we recommend everyone to follow when performing realtor duties.
1. Bring disinfectant wipes and wipe all doorknobs and light switches before and after you touch them.
2. Be mindful not to touch surfaces unless necessary. If lights are on do not turn them off if the home is occupied! If interior doors are open do not shut them if the home is occupied.
3. If a client has had symptoms of fever or respiratory illness such as coughing, shortness of breath, or sneezing, please refrain from showing at this time. If a virtual tour or video is available, and if applicable, have the client view the material in the MLS.
4. Refrain from bringing children or extra family members or friends that are not the decision-makers into the home during the showing to ensure that social distancing can still be implemented.
5. Plan and schedule showings so none will overlap with other agents. Physical distancing must be observed at all times.

According to experts, 2020 will be a positive year for the housing market. Although most homebuyers will likely buy during the spring season, it is beneficial for real estate agents to start building a connection with homebuyers as early as the first quarter of the year, especially with 1st-time homebuyers. With this in mind, here are 3 tips on how to win the hearts of 1st-time homebuyers.
1. Build Rentals Into Your Business. This will mean investing in making yourself familiar and knowledgeable with rentals, but it's all worth it in the long run. Renters you have worked and maintained a good relationship with will likely come to you when they decide to transition to being homeowners.
2. Connect With Banks and Mortgage Lenders. Since banks and mortgage lenders work closely with homebuyers in financing the purchase of their home, it is smart to reach out and offer your partnership with these institutions.
3. Work Local Events. Market yourself and your service in your local area by leading 1st-time homebuyers in the right direction and assist them with setting goals to move towards homeownership. Get out and host a homebuyer's workshop that will teach buyers the entire process.
