With social distancing regulations now largely in place across North America, many agents are prohibited from holding open houses.
But rather than sit idle, there’s much you and your clients can do now to prepare for the day when the wheels of commerce start rolling again. Buyers can improve their buying position, and sellers can get their homes list-ready with a few proactive steps.
While it can typically take two to three weeks to get a property on the market, some brokers are telling their agents to use this time to get homes list-ready now.
That way, once the shelter in place and stay at home orders are lifted, you and your clients can hit the ground running.

Realty Executives International is excited to announce that Realty Executives of Cape County, of Cape Girardeau, Missouri, has been named a 2019 Market Leader for the international real estate franchise. This award is given to franchisees with 100+ agents, 1000+ transactions, or 20-plus percent market share (based on transactions in the MLS).
Realty Executives of Cape County, celebrating 16 years in business, has successfully completed over 1,400 transactions in 2019, representing a remarkable 48 percent market share in their local market.
Realty Executives is the first real estate franchisor to replace its third-party Multiple Listing Service (MLS) aggregator with a proprietary home listing platform. This new technology eliminates the third-party challenges of incomplete and delayed listing information, ensuring Realty Executives has the most comprehensive, up-to-date and consistent home listings available.
Needing access to hundreds of separate MLS feeds, international real estate companies have had to partner with MLS aggregation and standardization companies in order to provide a comprehensive list of homes for sale. However, these listings are often incomplete because of broken feeds third-party vendors have not addressed. Realty Executives decided to connect directly to over 70 MLS feeds in order to provide their brokers, agents and customers access to the most thorough and up-to-date listings available.
