As COVID-19 continues to impact South Carolina, our nation, and the entire world, the need to practice social distancing and implement preventative measures is of the utmost importance. At the Ussery Group, we value our clients above all else, and it is with you in mind that we are adapting how we conduct business during the days and weeks ahead.
As you know, the CDC has issued several guides to preventing the spread of Covid-19, including guidelines for maintaining healthy business operations. One of the main changes necessitated by this pandemic is the limitation of physical contact. In keeping with the standards set by our partner, Charter One Realty, the Ussery Group is offering options that will allow us to continue meeting the needs of our clients while also contributing to the safety and well-being of our community.
One of the main ways in which we typically come into contact with clients is through home or homesite tours. To minimize physical contact, we are now offering digital tours via FaceTime—an option that other clients have already taken advantage of this week! Our agents will work to ensure that you get a clear picture of the property you are interested in from the comfort and safety of your own home.
We are also working diligently to create more video media for our properties. We know how important it is to see a home in-person before buying, and with this in mind, we will be uploading footage more frequently to YouTube and IGTV so that you can easily experience the best homes in Bluffton, Palmetto Bluff, and Hilton Head by video. We are also dedicated to providing the best marketing solutions for those looking to sell their homes, and would love to discuss the possibility of creating web tours and/or high-quality videos that tell the unique story of your home or homesite.
For the time being we are also still offering in-person tours, albeit with extra precautions to ensure the safety of both you and our agents. All tour-goers will be issued gloves, and you will also be asked to remove your shoes or wear booties as we walk through the property. Taking separate cars and practicing safe distancing (six feet or more) during walkthroughs are also top priorities. As more guidelines become available, we will continue to adapt and respond to maintain the health and safety of all parties. When you’re ready to move forward and purchase a home, your closing can be handled remotely via FedEx to minimize physical interaction.
Despite all of the mounting changes, we are continuing “business as usual” here at the Ussery Group. Our agents are available via text message, email, and FaceTime to talk with you at your convenience. Digital marketing efforts including frequent blogging and social media posting are in full swing as well. This is also a great time to request a competitive market analysis (CMA) in order to learn the value of your home or homesite.
No matter what lies ahead, we are prepared to continue serving you well—and that begins with doing what is best for the welfare of our entire community. Our prayers are with all who have been affected by COVID-19, and our commitment to using our knowledge, resources, and time to help you accomplish your real estate goals still stands firm. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch by email or call us at 843-757-7712 if we can serve you in any capacity during this time.
