BREAKING NEWS – Today Gov. Polis and the Department of Public Health and Environment are releasing an updated public health order in accordance with yesterday’s executive order implementing a statewide stay-at-home order.
Script from the Video
Your REALTOR Voice Has Been HEARD!
As a direct result of CAR’s regular communication and appeals to Governor Polis and his staff, the governor has amended his executive order to include real estate as a critical business. Please read the executive order in the text below.
Open Houses are not allowed and REColorado has disabled that option on their site. This by no means is business as usual.
SMDRA has received questions about photographers and other ancillary real estate services as to whether they are part of a “real estate transaction” and it is not proper for the association to provide legal advice to these ancillary services. Please contact your real estate attorney for guidance.
Please practice safety and diligence and convey this information to your clients. As we have any further information we will let you know. Our thanks to CAR’s staff and Scott Peterson for their hard work and lobbying efforts for our Realtor members. This truly is a reflection of our RPAC dollars at work. Your REALTOR voice has been heard.
All services included in the public health order are subject to social distancing requirements and professionals are still encouraged to implement telework options and staggered schedules when possible. Read the updated order here.
Our commitment is to continue, as we have for decades, to be a part of the solution for our clients and our communities – limiting exposure, risk and helping to save lives through our actions.
Some additional recommendations:
- Implement the new COVID-19 Addendum on all current real estate transactions by checking BOTH boxes. Access the Covid-19 Addendum Here.
- Contact clients to inform them of what they can expect during this period.
- Focus on organizing your business and checking in on the health and wellness of your clients.
- Contact your professional service providers to see what changes they have made due to the Coronavirus.
- If you are encountering or are anticipating personal hardship, go to your county website and contact your mortgage company to see what tools and resources they have to assist you at this time.
- Follow COVID-19 Stay-at-Home orders and safety guidelines.
- Help others- volunteer in your community according to the COVID-19 guidelines.
Thanks, and stay safe!
2020 Chairman of the Board
