3/30/2020 Update: Real Estate is an Essential Service, Now What?

Hey All,
Hope Everyone is Doing Well!

Real Estate is an Essential Service, Now What?

You should have received an email from your local association early Saturday evening, real estate in California is now listed as an Essential Service. However, if city or county has an order that is more restrictive on activities, those guidelines will still govern the activities of a licensee.  For us, the following still applies: Seniors and those with pre-existing conditions to be self-quarantine, Safer-at-Home Order (until April 19th) and Social Distancing (until April 30th). Most importantly, real estate licensee must take into account the health and safety of their clients and fellow licensees.  We are waiting for an updated FAQ on the CAR website.
Activities NOT allowed:
1.) no open houses
2.) no in-person showings
3.) no inspections – vendors who provide inspections are not exempt this includes appraisers
4.) your non-licensed assistant cannot be running around for you or work out of the office

REALTOR® Relief – For Agents | Tuesday, March 31, 11 a.m. – 12 p.m.

The president just signed the new Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Stimulus (CARES) Act into law which includes a number of financial resources available to benefit business owners and independent contractors — including REALTORS® —  who are dealing with the financial fallout from the COVID-19 pandemic. This webinar will discuss how the new legislation, along with prior state and federal stimulus programs, can provide relief to real estate agents.

There will be someone who is collecting mail and sorting it to your mailbox on a weekly basis.

On a personal note, 

The reality is the number of deaths doubled in just over 2 days at 2400 and we are expecting 100,000+ people to die from this virus in the US.
Health is not replaceable.
There will always be opportunities.
Stay safe and healthy.
Sincerely,
Kuan Sung, Jenny Liu and RE/MAX 2000 Management Team
