Virus Compels Real Estate To Get Creative At Virtual Marketing

If necessity remains the mother of invention, the needfulness borne of the pandemic has given birth to innovative developments in marketing and selling real estate.

Hamstrung by pandemic-era travel restrictions faced by both domestic and international buyers, real estate agents have had to go beyond their usual reservoirs of creativity to engage with prospects. Virtual tours are being used to showcase to these would-be buyers properties that in some cases have not been fully constructed.

An example is found at 2000 Ocean, the 38-story coastal luxury residential project tucked away in the Miami suburb of Hallandale Beach, Fla. Scheduled for completion later this year, the development is engaging with foreign and stateside buyers in a way that would have been considered unnecessarily avant-garde a little over a year ago.

The property features half-floor residences, full-floor penthouses and a duplex sky villa with private pool deck and 360-degree unobstructed panoramic perspectives. Three-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bath residences include dens, floor-to-ceiling glass walls in main living areas and sprawling terraces east and west. Prices start at $2.7 million.

5 Creative Ways to Expand Your Design Business in 2021

In response to the economic downturn, some interior designers have reevaluated their design services and considered alternate revenue streams. AD PRO consulted with several who have expanded their offerings beyond traditional interior design services; some made these professional pivots even before the pandemic struck, and others as a result of it. Here, they share their experiences and provide insights for others who might be contemplating secondary money-making means.

Sell real estate

“Creating multiple streams of income is becoming almost trendy, and it’s an intelligent approach to adding to the success of any business,” says Kelly Collier, founder of Plot Twist Design and a licensed real estate agent since 2009. She says she has taken a break from real estate several times, most recently to launch her design studio at the beginning of 2019. By December of that year, she added real estate services to her design business.

“Real estate makes perfect sense for someone who is equally passionate about it as they are about design,” says Collier, who recently helped an investor friend with renovating a property to flip. “I assisted their construction team in selecting flooring, kitchen and bath tile, and other finishes. Once the work was completed last

Comedian and Interior Design Masters presenter Alan Carr says he is ‘in complete awe of interior designers who just go for it’ but admits he’s ‘just not that brave’ when it comes to his own home.

‘Get me on stage at the O2 Arena to perform to thousands, no worries but get me to decide on a roll of wallpaper, I come out in hives,’ he quips.

Series two of Interior Design Masters follows 10 talented new designers all looking for their big break in the fast-paced world of commercial interior design, as they compete to win a career-defining contract with one of the UK’s top boutique hotels.

Every week sees author and former Elle Decoration editor-in-chief, Michelle Ogundehin, set the designers a different design challenge. ‘There was a lot of upscaling going on, we had a lot of contestants who loved a rummage through a skip,’ says Alan.

‘I would see these knackered old chest of drawers on a Monday that they’d bought for a pittance, and by the end of the week, with new knobs and a lick of paint and a whole load of TLC, they were transformed into something so beautiful that
