To help agents navigate practicing real estate during these challenging times, C.A.R. has released these best practice guidelines that reflect C.A.R.'s understanding of Governor Newsom’s stay-at-home order. This document details recommended best practices for marketing, showing and closing on properties while maintaining compliance with CDC recommendations.
To compliment new guidelines released by CAR yesterday, today two new forms were released:
- One is a Listing Agreement Coronavirus Addendum or Amendment (RLA-CAA) for sellers and listing agents to sign, and
- The other is a Property Viewing Advisory and Declaration (PEAD) that is to be given to and signed by the seller, buyer, agents and anyone else who will be entering a property.
The forms can be accessed here. These forms will be added to Zipforms.
Successful non-essential businesses, while remaining open, are changing the way they do business. For example, while they remain open, restaurants may not serve food. The first priority needs to be safety. If the public, the client and the Realtors is careful and safe, we will get through this crisis more quickly.
