Temperatures may be dropping outside, but Northeast Indiana home sales are still heating up. This year, the word 'home' has taken on a greater significance. Overnight, the home went from being a place to being the only place where we spend time. Having the right kind of space, whether working from home or distance learning, is invaluable.


The global pandemic has reshaped the real estate market. Homebuyers and sellers say they are more likely to try to buy or sell a home entirely online. Agent-guided virtual tours are becoming the new standard. High-tech digital tools have given people the ability and the confidence to buy or sell a home in an exceptionally tight real estate market where properties change hands at a swift pace.  

Online technology has helped to shift attitudes toward the home buying and selling process.

For homebuyers who want to tour a home in person, virtual tours will allow them to whittle down their options and save time attending showings or open houses. Very few people will feel comfortable enough to purchase a home sight unseen; the majority will still want to tour a home in person before committing their down payment. We make this possible through sanitization methods and safe in-person social distancing.

Having the right guidance on buying and selling during this time is essential. When selling your house, it's vital to have a strong digital game plan and an effective online marketing strategy in today's rapidly changing market.
