As the spread of novel coronavirus has changed the ways people work, brokerage firm Ideal Properties Group has announced a new “Showings on Demand” system. The virtual and remote listing viewing option is available to all Ideal clients for all of the company’s sales and rental listings.
“As we launch our ‘Showings on Demand’ virtual listing viewing capability, we are strongly encouraged by the opportunities it affords to everyone involved in the home showing process,” stated Aleksandra Scepanovic, managing director of Ideal. “Our engineers have been working on developing a full-cycle digital alternative to rental and sales transactions. The fluid and rapidly evolving situation surrounding the coronavirus outbreak in and around New York City has seen our team quickly ramp up the effort.”
For rentals, clients will have the ability to see their selection of homes on their phone or computer.
“In a city of renters, we believe this digital procedure is going to be extremely valuable to everyone involved,” Scepanovic said.
Ideal said the new system wasn’t just about the virus; it’s also for the convenience of clients who are out of town, sick or just unavailable. Virtual showings are available to be scheduled at any time, just like in-person live showings.
