In the spirit of delivering a superior client-first brand of service, Bennion Deville Homes has rolled out and enhanced existing tools and partnerships to perform even better for our clients. Over the last year, the real estate industry has experienced an unprecedented shift as a critical response to the coronavirus. Although these changes have long been in the works, this shift happened quickly as a means of adapting to our “new normal.”
In the long run, these changes will make life easier for consumers while allowing agents and brokerages opportunities to craft additional ways to offer value for their clients. Here are a few ways we are creating a safe and effective home buying or selling experience for our clients now and for the future:
Dedicated Virtual Tours Page: Our website, bdhomes.com, offers a portal dedicated to delivering properties that feature virtual tours and virtual open houses right to your fingertips. Homes featured on this page have an accompanying property virtual video tour and/or immersive 3D floor plan tour. Some listings are even open to explore via virtual open house showings by agents on select days and times. Visit bdhomes.com/tours to learn more and tour your next home without leaving your couch.
Map-based Search: Find your next Coachella Valley casa using our map-based search tool, loaded with detailed fields to let you drill down to the property features and geographic boundaries of your choice. Organize your search by the standard fields of beds, baths, and square footage, but also expand to other lifestyle-oriented features. And of course, if there is a specific community or neighborhood you desire, you can search within it using our boundary drawing tool to ensure your house hunt goes off as smoothly as possible.
Property Previews: In this hyper-competitive market, fueled by historically low inventory and extreme scarcity, we put our homebuyers in prime position to learn about upcoming listings first. With the largest network of real estate professionals in the desert, Bennion Deville Homes agents have access to listings before they hit the open market. This internal communication channel also allows sellers to get their property into our network of talented agents who may have the perfect buyer lined up for your home.
Safe Home Tours: In-person tours are still a big part of the real estate process. We are in constant contact with local and state regulators to ensure we are complying with the latest and greatest safety measures to ensure everyone involved is as protected as possible. Although we have tools in place to deliver a more immersive home search experience, a physical tour of the property is often the final step before an offer is made. We want to make sure you can safely visit a listing before committing, as long as the showing is within local and state safety guidelines.
Leveraging Exclusive Worldwide Marketing Partnerships: As a leading independent brokerage and the desert’s real estate leader, we leverage key strategic partnerships with local, regional, and national publications and home search portals to get our listings front and center to qualified buyers. As these channels shift their key strategies to engage users online as well as in-print, we are with them every step of the way to ensure our agents have access to cutting-edge opportunities to get your properties in front of the right audiences.
Although we are unsure as to when we will return to “normal” in the future, we can plan for the future of the industry and make that new normal an even better real estate experience for all. We are confident we can use the experiences of this unfortunate, unprecedented situation to propel our business forward and push our ability to deliver for our clients higher into the stratosphere. The outlook of the real estate industry is undeniably bright, and we are eager to use lessons learned from the past to unlock possibilities and the potential of the future.
