Remote working has become a normal part of the lives of many people and businesses. There are many advantages and disadvantages to this new way of working, but for Real Estate, it doesn’t need to have a negative impact. Realties like Royal Canadian Realty work hard to keep their clients needs and wishes in mind while providing professional, experienced, caring services.
Let’s take a look at how remote working is affecting Real Estate and its agents.
What are the Advantages of Remote Working?
No commuting required. You save time and money usually spent on driving everyday. You are also helping the environment by leaving the car in the driveway.
Employees have the freedom to choose where they will work and often have the choice of hours. The employers also have this advantage of freedom.
Remote working often results in increased productivity and less stress. Employees are often happier and decide to stay with a company longer.
What are some Disadvantages of Remote Working?
Some employees like the office. They may find even a busy office has fewer distractions for them to deal with, like a T.V. or household chores. Office life can lead to sharing common values and team building.
There are employees who like to talk and get feedback from fellow co-workers, and they find doing that easier in an office setting. There is no real team building in a remote work setting, and definitely less team interaction.
If an employee has no discipline, or routine, he or she can find it hard to focus and be productive.
How does Remote Working Affect Homebuyers and sellers?
Does Remote working actually affect homebuyers and home sellers? Even though most realtors are now back to showing homes in person, virtual tours are still available for those who are not ready to do a face to face showing. These tours let you visit multiple homes virtually, without having to travel. You are saving time and money.
Remote Working and the Effect on Real Estate Agents
`Remote working brings new opportunities to Real Estate agents. Remote working has helped in the creation and development of new tools, features, and apps, keeping communications as open as possible with partners and clients.
People will have the option of living farther away from a job with remote work, either not needing to go to the office at all, or only a few days a week. Employees save more money by not having to drive to the office, which means they can save up to buy the house they really want. Buyers are now often looking for office-type spaces in a home, rather than an apartment.
As you can see, remote working just adds to the homebuying experience.
