As Ohio adapts to the new stay at home order we are all learning a new way of living.
The Clinton County Board of Realtors wants you to know that while these are difficult times, we are still here for you. We recognize that there are those who still need to list, buy and sell property and we are here to help!
Yes, real estate professionals are deemed as essential and there is much we can do while still keeping ourselves and our clients safe.
The following quote was taken directly from a recent announcement from the Ohio Board of Realtors:
“Professional services, including real estate services, have been declared an ‘essential business’ and therefore are not subject to the order. This means REALTORS may leave their homes to perform routine duties that fall under the umbrella of ‘real estate services’ such as going on listing appointments, showing properties, meeting with clients, attending closings, providing property management services, etc.
“When performing these services REALTORS must adopt required measures outlined in the order and the social distancing guidelines. These include maintaining at least six-foot social distancing from other individuals, washing your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds as frequently as possible or using hand sanitizer with the suggested percentage of alcohol content, covering coughs or sneezes (into the sleeve or elbow, not hands), regularly cleaning high-touch surfaces in properties, your car, office, etc. and not shaking hands.
“In addition, brokerages must take the following required measures, where possible: Designate six-foot distances. Designating with signage, tape, or by other means six foot spacing for employees/agents, clients and customers in any line to maintain appropriate distance (i.e. at an open house); hand sanitizer and sanitizing products; having hand sanitizer and sanitizing products readily available for employees and customers; separate operating hours for vulnerable populations; implementing separate operating hours for elderly and vulnerable customers; and online and remote access; posting online whether a facility is open and how best to reach the facility and continue services by phone or remotely.” (Read more at: https://bit.ly/3eDoOcC )
