Selling your home is usually a challenging, stressful and time-consuming project even in the best of times – which means sellers are under even more pressure as the COVID-19 pandemic continues.

The last thing you want is to potentially expose yourself and your family to the virus by hosting open houses and multiple walkthroughs, so take your open house online with a virtual tour.

Have disposable masks at the door and insist everyone wears one throughout the viewing. Take temperatures at the door with an infrared thermometer. Offer hand sanitizer at the door too. Make sure your estate agent understands your concerns and works with you to prepare potential buyers properly for the viewing, so you are all on the same page.
Take your home hygiene to the next level to protect yourself and potential buyers by sanitizing your space before and after any viewings. You can make this easier by:
