Market Update, April 23, 2020
Governor Polis outlined the state’s “Safer at Home” Plan this week, which begins to open the economy and aims to protect people, especially vulnerable populations, from exposure to the coronavirus. Real estate showings will be permitted starting April 27, but we don’t know what rules will be in place regarding showings and other real estate services. The Colorado Association of REALTORS® has recommended that, at minimum, the following be permitted while maintaining physical distance:
- Scheduled listing appointments with prospective buyers, sellers, landlords, or tenants where virtual meetings are not feasible.
- Placement of lockboxes and signage on properties.
- Furniture staging and real estate still and virtual photography by licensees or professional photographers.
- Private, scheduled showings with no more than 3 people present in-home at any one time.
We expect to get details about what is allowed and what isn’t very soon. We’ll update you when we know more. Follow us on Facebook for timely updates about the current situation.
Our goal is to keep clients and staff safe and healthy. We expect to continue to meet virtually with prospective buyers and sellers whenever possible during the “Safer at Home” phase of re-opening.
Connect with us anytime. If you have real estate questions or if you want to start planning for a purchase or sale once things settle down, call The Principal Team at 720-408-7409.
