As all of us at HUNT Real Estate Corp continue to manage through the COVID-19 crisis, we feel it important to keep our customers and clients — buyers and sellers of real estate, mortgage and refinance customers, property and casualty insurance customers, title insurance customers, and the tenants and landlords of the building we manage — updated as to how we can and will always continue to serve you.
Our offices are closed until the New York State mandate is lifted. Almost 100% of our employees — the support staff that serve our real estate, mortgage, and insurance professionals — are working from home. Cleaning protocols in all of our facilities have been increased to include hospital-grade disinfectants. We have worked with many business partners to ensure that we can remotely and virtually make sure real estate closings happen, mortgage financing closes, and your insurance needs are met. Thankfully, many of the technological tools needed to accomplish were already in place.
Our Sales Professionals are adapting to the new way of doing business — virtually, at least for the time being. We have designed roadmaps so that any HUNT Sales Professional can list a home virtually, host a virtual showing of any house currently available for sale, and how they can help a client navigate purchasing a home — all 100% virtually. While the real estate brokerage business has not been deemed essential, certain components of the transaction have been so designated. Appraisers can still appraise properties, but they will be “drive-by” rather than interior inspections. They may ask the home seller to complete a questionnaire or provide interior photos of certain aspects of the home. Our HUNT Mortgage Consultants remain 100% accessible to our Sales Professionals and our clients for our exclusive Pre-Purchase Commitments, “Second Looks”, purchase money applications and refinances.
At HUNT, we remain, Always There for You.
