Today the Baker Administration issued guidance for Realtors® during the COVID-19 State of Emergency. Thank you for your patience as we worked toward formal guidance from the state.
Showings and open houses are permitted and are subject to Governor Baker’s order limiting gatherings to ten or fewer people. If open houses are held, they must be limited to ten people at a time and social distancing must be enforced. Additionally, MAR recommends the use of hand sanitizer and thorough and frequent cleanings.
Although allowed, MAR strongly encourages members NOT to host open houses in order to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.
Real estate closings can continue, with social distancing for any in-person transactions.
Finally, because real estate has not been deemed “essential”, meetings with clients and prospective clients cannot take place at a real estate brokerages’ physical (bricks and mortar) offices but may take place with social distancing or remotely by phone or video.
