Above: 20 Westfield Drive

We spoke with Len Iannuccilli, broker/owner of RE/MAX Professionals, and he said he’s been evaluating each request to put a home on the market depending on individual circumstances. The most important present consideration, he said, is “safety for all parties.”

Following trends throughout the country, Len confirmed homes are being sold. “People are putting offers in on homes using platforms like Matterport that allow for a detailed 3D view,” he said.

The residing theme of real estate at this time is “go virtual.”  Statewide Rhode Island MLS is responding by encouraging realtors to include a live-streamed “open house” or walk through of each home. Additionally, the limit on photos in each listing has increased from a maximum of 40 to 50 to allow the consumer greater remote opportunity to view a home.

In East Greenwich this week there are two new listings and one sold property.
