Virtual reality sets in
When Janet and Bill were ready start looking seriously, COVID-19 quarantine wreaked havoc on their home hunt. Anna had to get creative with how she was going to show them houses. Anna and Janet enlisted Sherry‘s assistance in taking an active role as Janet and Bill’s eyes and ears as Anna FaceTimed them and highlighted features of the different homes they toured. Shopping for a home remotely is certainly a one-of-a-kind experience, but they made the most of it and ended up having a fun in the process. After going through homes virtually, they narrowed where they wanted to live and what they wanted in a home. With the connections Ron and Anna have, they were able to find them a home, not on the market and the sellers were in the process of building the home. Once again, Sherry toured the home while Anna Facetimed Bill and Janet.
Janet and Bill fell in love with the home and felt this was “the one.” Since this house was not on the market, the Bishers had professional photos taken, so they could get a "Realtor's view" of the spaces throughout the house. Anna then arranged a follow up, visit with Sherry and her husband, Sam. They walked through the house, with Janet and Bill, on video chat, so they could get a second look and get their questions answered. Janet and Bill felt confident making an offer on this house without physicially seeing the house in person. Bill eventually came to Cincinnati for the inspections, but Janet recently had surgery and was unable to attend and the closing was handled remotely. Therefore, Janet never saw the house until they met with the sellers to go over things prior to occupancy and Anna finally met Bill and Janet “in person” when they were given occupancy!
