John Janus: Hello. This is John Janus with Telluride Realty & Investment, and welcome to day 35 of shelter in place here in Telluride, Colorado. Frankly, things are pretty much looking the same as they usually do this time of the year. It’s off season, after all, and so things are generally very quiet this time of the year. The difference is that we are all sheltering in place, instead of going off on vacation. And, we are taking better care of each other than ever before. Telluride Realty & Investment is still doing business, and we would love to help you through these difficult times.
We are proceeding with a real estate, not as usual, but with a new, enhanced pandemic response to this, and that is to perform our real estate duties with an abundance of caution. We do nothing to put you or your loved ones in any way, shape, or form, harm’s way. We can still do almost everything that we normally do, except now we do it virtually. We can do virtual tours. I can give you a virtual listing presentation. We can do high-quality video conferencing. We can even do remote closings, including notary. The State of Colorado now allows remote notary, so that all aspects of real estate can be done. We just are doing them in a new and different way.
We’re being cautious, we’re erring on the safety side, and I think that in the end that this will be to the benefit of all. And we’re not missing a beat, as far as crossing every T and dotting every I in the process of all real estate transactions.
So if you’re looking to sell your real estate here in the San Miguel County or Western Slope, we can certainly help you with that, and it’s a great time to do so. There’s a lot less competition going on right now, and there is a lot more focus and attention that will be placed upon your home, your property, your land, your condo than there has been in the past, due to the particular situation that we’re all living under.
If you’re looking to buy, I could do virtual tours of homes, of condos, of land, and we can do it live, so that you can ask questions and you can be the director of the show. It’s almost as good as being there. And, it’s a lot more relaxed. Nothing like going to a home showing in your pajamas.
So, please, if we can do anything for you in terms of real estate, don’t hesitate to contact us. We’re here to help. We want to keep you safe and healthy and happy in these trying times. And, before you know it, this will be over and there’ll be an awful lot of pent up energy, and I believe real estate activity. So now is the time to begin the process, so that when this does break, you won’t be left out in the cold.
I thank you, and look forward to hearing from you. Take good care.
