Practicing Real Estate during the COVID-19 Pandemic
Here in New Jersey the Governor has ordered that all "non-essential" employees remain home.
Businesses are ordered to make tele-solutions possible for employees if able. Travel is restricted to trips to the grocery store, the pharmacy, the doctor's office, etc. In NJ ALL gatherings are canceled, no church services, weddings, funerals, parties or any other gatherings are allowed. It's OK to go for a walk or a bike ride to get some exercise, but social distancing must be adhered to.
So how does this affect Real Estate?
Some offices are open. Some are closed. The ones that are opened are required to exercise social distancing as defined by the CDC. Our local and State Associations are telling us that as of now we can still conduct business such as showings as long as we practice social distancing.
The associations have instructed us to ask if anyone going to the showing (or living in the home) is sick or has been exposed to someone with coronavirus. If so they should not go and the seller should not be in the house for showings. I would recommend to our sellers that at a minimum they disinfect all doorknobs, handles, faucets, etc. before and after the showings.
