On Sunday, April 26th, Boulder County released an update to their stay at home order, which is currently in effect until May 8th, allowing in-person showings. (Open houses are NOT permitted.) While we are thrilled to be able to serve our clients in this way again, we take the safety of our agents, our clients and our community very seriously.
Here are the steps we are taking to make sure our showings are as safe as possible:
Prior to approving any showings, we are asking buyers to thoroughly review photographs, virtual tours, floor plans, videos and property disclosures. and if possible, drive through the neighborhood.
Buyers must also be pre-approved for mortgage financing through a reputable lender, or provide proof of funds.
We provide a COVID-19 Disclosure and Release Agreement for both buyers and sellers to review and sign, confirming that no parties are experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19 or have knowingly been exposed. These steps ensure that only serious buyers who are ready, willing and able to purchase the home are approved for showings.
Seller or listing broker will prepare the house for showing by turning the lights on, clearing paths, opening closet doors, and removing all valuables.
Masks, gloves, booties, hand sanitizer and disinfectant wipes (if available) will be made available by the front door of all listings.
If home is occupied, the Seller is also instructed to disinfect surfaces of home after showings have taken place.
No overlapping showings allowed. A maximum of three people can attend showings, and buyers should whenever possible leave children at home. All people entering the property must wear masks, gloves and booties, leave lights on and refrain from touching anything other than doorknobs and handrails if necessary.
Anyone entering the property must adhere to the safe distancing guidelines, and any discussion regarding the property should take place following social distancing rules (6’ or greater) after leaving the property, or over via electronic means.
Together we can work to keep everyone safe while still providing our world-class service to our buyers and sellers. If you have questions about how we can help you buy or sell a home during this time, please reach out!
We are here for you!
