Couple Searching For New Home

Buying a New Home in The Age of Social Distancing

The year 2020 has changed how we do things, from the most common tasks to monumental milestones in life. With health and safety at the forefront of everyone’s minds, we put together a list of tips to make home shopping a little easier in this time of social distancing. 

Take Advantage of Online Sales Centers

Using a home builder’s website can save you time and energy by helping you gather information to narrow your home search prior to contacting a sales professional. By doing this research in advance, you can identify prospective neighborhoods and available floor plans with features that accommodate your absolute musts, such as a 3-car garage or an in-home study room. 

Our website,, is an online sales center featuring 3D views, video tours, interactive floor plans, and high-quality galleries. These resources allow you to view our floor plans and tour our model homes from the comfort of your own home.

Book a Private Tour

Although Virtual Tours and Interactive Floor Plans are engaging tools to help you find the perfect home, nothing beats the experience of the real thing. Booking a private tour can be a great way to ensure that Realtors or sales agents are prepared for your arrival and can take important steps to ensure that you and your family are safe. At Hakes Brothers, each of our model homes and sales offices are being cleaned and sanitized daily in addition to our regular weekly cleaning schedule. 

If you are interested in booking a private tour, our Online Sales Counselor is available to assist you. Simply contact us by phone, live chat, or through a sales inquiry form.

Utilize the Experts

Realtors and sales agents are effective resources to facilitate your home buying process. You’ll quickly see that they have additional information about the home, floor plan, or neighborhood that could impact your home buying decision. In many cases, these insights may help you save money, learn about a new feature, or discover locational benefits.

We understand that purchasing a new home amid our “new normal” can sometimes seem a bit overwhelming. As product experts, our New Home Sales Professionals are available to answer questions for both you and your real estate agent. No Realtor? No problem. Our sales professionals are licensed agents that can guide you through every step of the process. 

If you are ready to schedule a tour of a model home, either in-person or virtually, we can make that happen! Please send a request, start a live chat, or call your dedicated Online Sales Counselor to schedule a time at your convenience. 

Happy home shopping!
