Proprietary ‘Make an Offer’ Feature Extends Virtual Tools Available on Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices New England, New York and Westchester Properties Websites

 

Virtual residential real estate experience is now fully integrated, robust and consumer-friendly

 

NEW YORK, NY (April 16, 2020) – Today, Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices New England, New York, and Westchester Properties launched a new feature across all company websites: the ability to make an offer directly to the owner via the listing agent. This interactive button enables consumers to instantly Make an Offer on a property, allowing them to start the process, whenever, wherever, while also reducing the need for in-person interactions.

“We are as committed as ever to being sure our technology is superior in every way allowing agents and consumers to connect,” said Candace Adams, President and CEO of BHHS New England, New York, and Westchester Properties. “The magnitude of our resources, coupled with the reputation and stability of the Berkshire Hathaway name, positions our agents to provide the most digital exposure and the highest level of opportunity to convert online views into completed transactions.”

The BHHS New England, New York, and Westchester Properties websites are armed with features that offer consumers a complete real estate experience; from searching for a home using the ‘Location Based Search’, instantly connecting with a local agent using the ‘Text Me’ feature, visiting a property virtually, moving forward by placing a virtual offer, and ending the process with signing and sharing transaction paperwork through a secure online portal.

“With the new resources added for both buyers and sellers, property views on our websites have significantly increased as well as the number of consumers contacting our listing agents directly,” adds Kathryn Redican, Vice President of Operations at BHHS New England, New York, and Westchester Properties. “The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the way we do business, and it has exponentially furthered the virtual residential real estate experience for our agents and their clients.”
