You can do banking and file your taxes on your phone; there’s no reason you shouldn’t be able to buy and sell property as well.
Haring Realty has recently added another digital layer to the process that has been helping Richland County residents with frictionless transactions for decades.
"We’ve always emphasized the importance of taking the time to understand the needs of our clients," Peter Haring, a broker at Haring Realty said. "That generally means spending time meeting personally with our clients either at their home or at our office."
Here’s a quick overview of the tools and processes, so you can find your dream home or list your property with a few clicks and get the maximum value.
When you’re ready to list your home or start the home buying process, Haring can easily set up a video conference call or simply do a consult over the phone. You can even fill out a contact form with what you want, and Haring will start aligning your real estate needs and goals. And then get you connected to the right agent.
Adam Gongwer, a sales associate with Haring Realty, assisted snowbirds in Florida when they asked him to meet their daughter at a duplex in Mansfield.
“Through digital photos and video over her phone, her parents in Florida were able to see the vacant investment property remotely and submitted an offer just a few hours later,” Gongwer said.
If you want to sell your house or property, it absolutely needs to be digitally showcased perfectly so potential buyers can do a virtual walkthrough.
A decade ago, photos of the house were enough. That’s still important and it’s why Haring uses a professional photographer. However, today it’s all about 3D tours. The software allows one to be totally immersed in the home, and creates a virtual reality walkthrough. Only with 360 degree touring can you feel like you're standing in the middle of the kitchen, and can get a true sense of the island, the cabinets, etc.
“At Haring Realty, we care deeply about the customer experience. We’re always looking for new technologies to save our client’s valuable time while enhancing their overall real estate experience. These technologies, which we’ve been using in many cases for several years, are especially appreciated by some of our clients in light of the Covid-19 situation,” Haring said.
From the buyer’s perspective, even with 3D virtual tour technology, you may still want to do a physical walkthrough. As needed, Haring tries to keep PPE available, such as face masks, etc., to provide for the safety of their clients.
Once the buyer wants to move forward with the property, it’s never been easier to electronically submit an offer and set up online conferencing to go over all the details and final numbers.
Haring Realty is a proud member of Leading Real Estate Companies of the World®. Haring’s advantage of being nationally affiliated but locally owned means the agents and staff are invested in the greater Mansfield area but offer the resources of a large national firm.
