New Pandemic Trends: Adding “Zoom Rooms” To Our Listings – July 28th

living room


Robyn Kaufman, Realtor®


Changes and Opportunities
Hello everyone,

Last week, there was progress on a safe vaccine and there’s more in other vaccine developments. Researchers plan to enroll 30,000 people across the U.S. in the last stage, or phase 3 trial of the Moderna vaccine candidate. Results, which government health officials said could come by November, will determine whether or not it should be cleared for widespread use.

A successful vaccine changes everything, once it is in the market and deployed. It seems our government is aggressively investing in the ultimate manufacturing and distribution of a successful vaccine. How does this apply to real estate? Once the vaccine is on the market, the COVID home buying surge could substantially relax.

In response to work-from-home trends, agents and sellers are adding “Zoom rooms” to their listings. As buyers look to a future of working from home, home offices with pretty backdrops are seemingly in demand. Something to think about when preparing your condo for sale.
