With the coronavirus disrupting every aspect of day-to-day life, even deciding on a new home can be a challenge.
However, real estate agents are coming up with adaptive ways to show and sell properties.
Harrison Humphreys property consultant Jessica Bryant, for example, utilised FaceTime to sell a Trevallyn property for more than $1 million.

The property, called Barralong, had been on the market for six days when Ms Bryant showed to a buyer inquiring about a different property.
The only obstacle was the buyer had recently returned from an interstate trip, and was in quarantine in a Launceston hotel.
"I think it was her sixth day into quarantine and she saw the house and rang me the next day saying she'd love to have a look by Facetime," Ms Bryant said.
"We did a 40-minute inspection over the phone through FaceTime, I showed her the whole property and she offered on the spot."
Not longer after, the vendors accepted the offer.
"It happened within an hour of taking the phone call," Ms Bryant said.
This was the first time in Ms Bryant's career that she sold a house this way.
She said it proved that property sales were still possible during the coronavirus pandemic.
"Especially in this climate, everyone's so negative about whether properties will go down in price or if there's enough demand," Ms Bryant said.
"From my perspective, I've still got plenty of buyer inquiries and I'm still doing many inspections a week.
"We're still allowed to show property but we need to work with the restrictions."

Ms Bryant said effective marketing was key to selling property under the current climate.
"Making sure that you have great photography and video, it does help people that can't physically be there to inspect," Ms Bryant said.
"Marketing has a huge impact on the result."
The five-bedroom home includes a spa, was built in 1903 and covers 1654m2 of land.
The name Barralong is apparently Indigenous and refers the meeting on the North and South Esk rivers over which the house looks.
