Designed to Sell 2020 COVID-19 Precautions
As one of your dedicated partners in business, Designed to Sell is taking the following precautions to ensure the safety of you, your customers and our team during these challenging times. We understand the current health concerns may make some of us feel reluctant to meet in person for staging consultations, vacant property previews or staging / showcasing installations. We are open for business, providing you or your clients have not travelled or been in contact with someone who has travelled within the past 14 days. Here are the measures we are taking to ensure everybody’s safety:
Designed to Sell will follow Health Canada’s guidelines on all safety measures including regular hand washing, overall proper hygiene etiquette and the use of gloves as required / requested. For a vacant home, we will preview the home through use of a lockbox or security code in order to turn around a quotation to you and list the appropriate items / rentals required. If at any time a DTS member is feeling symptomatic, we will be halting any in-home consultations over the 14 day self quarantine / isolation period.
If you or your clients would prefer an e-consultation versus an in-home consultation, we are happy to provide this service and will forward the necessary documentation with steps to follow on taking appropriate photos to submit for review and recommendations (occupied or vacant properties). For occupied properties, we will prepare a detailed report / summary and email it to both you and the homeowner within 24 hours, so they may begin preparing the property for sale. For vacant properties, we will submit a proposal within 24 hours highlighting DTS design plan & pricing options.
HOME STAGING / SHOWCASING
DTS will continue to stage occupied and vacant properties during this time. We will be quarantining our inventory for a minimum of 3 days before delivery, increasing our disinfecting process of our inventory, and taking precautions in properties by wearing gloves during the delivery. If at any time a home owner of an occupied staged property becomes ill and is required to self-isolate / quarantine, additional daily rental charges will be waived. We will work with you to make this work! If at any time a DTS member is feeling symptomatic, we will be halting any in-home showcasing activities over the 14 day self quarantine / isolation period.
If professional photos are available (no smartphone photos please), and rooms are vacant or uncluttered and minimally furnished, we can virtually stage your property without bringing inventory into the home. All photos will be shared with you to post on MLS and any of your branded sites.
There’s a lot of uncertainty in the world right now – but there’s also a lot of good too. We can’t wait until this all passes and we get to celebrate next to each other again.
