Visiting Properties with COVID Precautions

Updated: Mar 23

(This post was updated in Spring 2021)

I recently answered a question submitted to my Google site - about how properties are being shown with COVID precautions. I talked mostly about properties for sale, and Open Houses, but rentals are even easier. Most are being shown empty, and rentals are usually shown to only 1 party at a time. Still, certain procedures are common to both.

So here's how I'm ensuring maximum safety for homeowners and the open house attendees:

1 - Upon entry, I am collecting contact information for all attendees should we need to alert that an attendee has tested positive.

2 - Everyone must use hand sanitizer upon entry and wear a face mask for the duration of their time in the home.

3 - Lysol wipes are available to use as a barrier to open closets, cabinets, and handrails.

4 - Depending on the property's size, no more than 2 or 3 parties in total in the house at any time.

5 - Social distancing practices include ensuring attendees keep 6-foot distance while touring the house and not viewing the same rooms simultaneously.

6 - Lastly, when possible, have all attendees use a "one-way" system; entrance through the front door and exit by back or side door to ensure a smooth flow of traffic.

If you have any questions about how you can safely list a property, or go apartment or house hunting, please be in touch. I am always happy to arrange private showings or make other accommodations!
