Property In The Current Climate

Wayne Heldt

If you want to chat for hours about COVID-19, I’m probably not your guy… but this constantly evolving situation has made the Real Estate Industry think about how we interact with buyers and sellers and how we show properties to people who may not want to ( or can’t ) leave their homes.

Here’s a quick look at the tech and processes Bellcourt Mount Lawley is deploying to continue serving our clients through the Coronavirus pandemic.


Digital Property Tours

A coming together of professional photography and floor plans to help buyers navigate through your property. Clicking on certain places on the floor plan will display corresponding photos inclusive of lines showing the photographer’s orientation.  This is a very cost effective way to give buyers a more in depth experience of your home.

3D Virtual Tour

This is about as close as one can get to walking through your home, without walking through it!  This technology feels just like using Google Earth. You can jump from spot to spot and turn 360 degrees to view everything around you.  Buyers may actually notice more of the finer details of your home by way of a 3D Virtual Tour than they otherwise would rushing through a Home Open with a bunch of other buyers.

An Informal Video Walk Through

Professional property videos are fantastic.  They present your home in the best possible light and home owners always enjoy sharing them on social media with friends and family. Buyers like them too.  But an off the cuff video taken with an iPhone can be taken and uploaded within minutes and gives buyers more insight into the layout and scale of your home.


Targeted Social Media

As people spend more time inside and less time socializing, social media becomes more important and social media usage no doubt increases. To get your home in front of more eyes, Facebook advertising is the perfect option. It’s highly targeted, down to the viewer’s location, age, income and interests. Bellcourt Mount Lawley has been using targeted social media advertising for a while and I think it’s going to become even more important in the coming months.

Further Qualification of Buyers

Making sure that someone is actually in a position to buy and that the property suits their basic needs has always been a part of an Agent’s job, but in the current climate there are 3 more questions we’re asking;

  • Have you returned from overseas travel in the past 21 days?
  • Have you had any contact with someone that is unwell?
  • Have you felt unwell recently?

We send this form by SMS or email so people can respond with just three clicks on their phone or computer, with responses recorded electronically.

New Guidelines at Home Opens


Everything is a little bit crazy at the moment but the family who outgrew their home 3 months ago still needs to upsize.  The young couple looking to move closer to work would still prefer to buy than rent.

If you’re thinking of selling but you’re not sure if there’s a way to do so successfully in the current climate, you’re not alone but there is a way.   Please don’t hesitate to give me a call to discuss your property plans.
