With fear of coronavirus forcing "social distancing" around the country, real estate brokerages are creating policies to protect everyone involved in buying and selling a home.
The National Association of Realtors recommends the following protocol for Open Houses around the country:
We are in the early stages of this public health emergency, and there is a ton of misinformation flying around. Suffice it to say, we should be more concerned with germs than ever before. Shaking hands when greeting one another is no longer recommended, and we are supposed to stay outside of a 3-foot range of those near us.
I'll continue to monitor how the coronavirus is affecting the real estate industry and write articles when appropriate. For now, I hope everyone stays healthy.
