Gov. Baker's Order to Close All Non-Essential Businesses

Earlier today, Governor Charlie Baker ordered  all non-essential businesses to cease in-person operations from noon on Tuesday, March 24 until noon on Tuesday, April 7. MAR is urgently seeking clarification on this order as it pertains to real estate.

If real estate is not recognized as an essential service, all real estate offices must close for the required period effective Tuesday March 24th at noon. However, Realtors® can continue, within the guidelines of public health and safety officials, to conduct business remotely. Please note that new state health and safety guidelines now cap each gathering at 10 people.
