The GMAR has received several calls and complaints from sellers, explaining that the directives for showing their properties are not being followed.
If the seller requires visitors in their home to wear a mask or shoe coverings, then you must wear a mask or shoe coverings.
Cooperate agents need to remind their buyers that it is the seller’s right to make reasonable showing requirements. If the buyer refuses, you cannot let them see the property. Nanny cams are also watching!

Plus, the Federal Reserve has increased the printing of money since the crisis began, raising serious concerns about the U.S. dollar and how we can protect ourselves if its value continues to drop.

The good news? Real estate can be a hedge against currency devaluation.
