The entry of COVID-19, the pandemic of all time, has greatly affected the Caribbean, especially in terms of real estate growth. With the lockdowns, restrictions, and business closures, no tourists are flying anytime to do a vacation, especially for villa rentals.
It totally hurt the economy, which is quite frustrating because the Caribbean real estate market has started to make a comeback early this year. However, due to the pandemic, such a halt was realized, and the challenge to stay afloat was quite relentless.
Challenges of reaching out buyers
Caribbean real estate experts are at a loss at the beginning of the pandemic crisis, especially on how to make a sale with the properties. You can’t meet the clients and provide a tour to the property, making it impossible to reach the targeted quota for the quarter.
It is understandable as well because consumers are trying to be careful with making investments due to the current crisis. Truly the odds are on all of us, and it’s’s not only the real estate that is suffering, but ultimately all the industries are trying to thrive and recover from the crisis.
Improvements in the third quarter
As they say, “If there’s a will, there’s a way””, the saying still holds true, especially at this point where the real estate industry starts making another comeback. With the advancement of technology and the advantages of the internet, it’s’s now possible to make a sale virtually.
This paradise has started to ease their restrictions, so real estate experts can now do visits to some properties and update possible clients through their website. With the rising fame of Zoom, a video messaging app, real estate experts are taking advantage of the app when reaching out to clients.
They set virtual client meetings, virtual tours, answering queries as often as possible. They are always available when the client’s message, which is a good strategy for the real estate industry to recover and rise again. Quotations, contracts, and sales are now made online with no risks of meeting each other to close the sale.
No one ever saw this happening that real estate sales can be made wherever you are in the world.
