It has been brought to our attention that members are unaware of the State Executive Public Health Order that clarifies the next steps for the real estate industry. Please read through the order. We want to direct you to read page 5 "Section E" and page 18 "Appendix B." Real estate falls into "Field Services."
 
As we have moved to the new guidelines, real estate includes in-person real estate showings and marketing services, which must adhere to Social Distancing Requirements with cleaning and disinfection between each showing, but may not hold open houses.
 
Appendix B refers to the requirement that needs to be met to show the property for employing brokers and agents. A few items to point out are bullet-pointed below. Please makes sure and read the entire list as these are the requirements for showing property.

  • Must wear mask and gloves & provide them to clients
  • Monitor of agent symptoms and developing a policy for offices
  • Maintaining a detailed log of contacts 
  • Cleaning and disinfecting between showings- (A good idea here would be to put a note in your showing instructions on how this is going to be coordinated.)
  • Read full list
 
When it comes to showings, the best practice is to minimize "people to within the same household" to attend, such as decision-makers.
 
Please note that Eagle County guidelines did not specifically address real estate, which means that we should be following the state guidelines. We can't stress how important it is that the real estate community takes this seriously. Committing to following these guidelines ensures we don't move backward or get stricter regulations.
