A Note from the Brandon Smith Team

Dear Valued Clients,  

Our thoughts are with those affected by COVID-19, as well as heath care professionals, government officials and organizations who are working tirelessly on containment and caring for those in need. At The Platinum Group, Realtors the health and safety of our clients, agents and staff is our top priority.  We remain fully operational and hard at work and are taking the necessary steps to ensure we provide the best customer experience possible during this time of uncertainty. 

We recognize that this is a challenging and unprecedented time in our society and will diligently follow all guidelines set forth by the government and industry associations. We are humbled by your loyalty and trust in us and we take our responsibility seriously.  We look forward to serving all your real estate needs as we stay focused on how to serve you best!  

Some COVID-19 measures we already have in place for:

Sellers:

  • High resolution photos for listings- showcase your home to buyers online in putting your home a notch above the rest.
  • Dynamic web presence allowing virtual showings through photos and slideshow tours.
  • eContracts- allows for electronic signing of contracts and disclosures.

Buyers:

  • All properties searches are web based.
  • Video emails & text capability- allows virtual showings of house through your smart device.
  • eContracts- allows for electronic signing of contracts and disclosures.
  • Private tours through homes allowing little to no additional contact with anyone.

If you are considering buying or selling in the coming months, this is an excellent time to start working towards that goal. Listed below are some ideas you can do while you are at home.

Sellers:

  • Finish up maintenance projects you have been putting off: painting rooms, fixing leaky faucets, chalking around tubs and showers etc.
  • Clean and declutter to prepare for staging: best tip for identifying clutter is take a picture of your room. Things you frequently overlook become more obvious once you take a picture. (You are always welcome to send me the pics as well!)
  • If you are interested in a consult we can video call and I can give you some tips on what to prioritize as you walk through the home.

Buyers:

  • Get your financial information together to get ready to apply for your loan: paystubs, debt payments etc.
  • Finish up filing your taxes. You will need to have the information handy to provide to your lender.
  • Talk to your lender about the best steps regarding your credit and debt to income.
  • Use our online tools on like our website to look at different neighborhoods and help refine what you are looking for.

The market is ever changing and if you are curious about stepping into the market soon or would like to hear how this is impacting our local economy, please do not hesitate to reach out. I am keeping a close eye on interest rate, home values, supply & demand and other market factors constantly to make sure I have the capacity to keep you all well informed as we move through this issue. I hope you and your family are keeping safe, healthy and your careers are not being impacted in any negative manner.
