Even real estate has transitioned to operating virtually

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WLNE) – In this era of social distancing, real estate agencies are changing the way they do business.

Joe Fazio part of, The Dispirito Team is doing as much as possible virtually, rather than in person.

His team is showing houses to potential buyers and touring potential sellers’ homes via video chat.

With spring and summer being busy buying and selling seasons, as soon as social distancing became implemented, his company began preparing right away.

“Some buyers expect to come to a house like normal, you know, bring their whole family through a house, which obviously we can’t have that.  So that’s, I’d say, the biggest hurdle.  But the market’s still going.  It’s very strong right now.” said, Fazio.

Interested buyers who want to see a house in person can do so with proper precautions and social distancing, after an initial virtual showing.

If a sale takes place, they are limiting the number of people at essential in-person meetings such as closings.
