Update on Real Estate during the Covid-19 ...



Under the Governor's Stay at Home order, a number of businesses are listed as essential. These include real estate firms, appraisers, title companies, movers and others essential to allow home owners to complete the purchase and sale of homes. While we continue to support all of our clients, being cognizant of the need for isolation and social distancing, we are doing all we can to work virtually with our many partners to help our clients successfully navigate during this time of uncertainty. We are here to support you in any way possible.

Virtual Listing Presentations and Photography

We are leveraging virtual tours of properties for a walk through combined with a virtual meeting with our clients.

Showings of Listings with Buyers

In advance of any showing, we are confirming that both buyers and sellers are healthy per CDC guidelines. 

Sharing Compass Collections, photography, and video with our buyer clients ensures they have vetted as much digital content as possible in advance and are attending a listing with a lot of knowledge already. 

During showings, we are following safety protocols from the CDC, practicing social distancing (6' apart), removing shoes or using shoe covers, asking anyone entering a home to not touch any surface, and sanitizing surfaces upon completion of the showings. 


Open Houses 

During this current environment, and in an effort not to promote private or public gatherings that are prohibited under the Governor Stay at Home order, we are not recommending any in-person (live) public 

open houses.  In lieu of live open houses, 

we are hosting Virtual Open Houses that our agents can live stream to potential buyers and their agents.   

Inspections on Properties

Using video calls such as Facetime or Google Hangouts, we are suggesting that only the inspector be allowed into the property to perform the inspection and be sure inspector follows all recommended safety precautions. The inspector will sanitize the home upon completion of their work. 


We are working with attorneys and title companies to keep closings to the minimum of attendees necessary and to practice social distancing among those attending. 

Preparing our clients for the closing in advance allows them to know what to expect and ensures the closing is carried out successfully. 

Most title companies are preparing for entirely virtual closings.
