THIS JUST IN FROM NEW YORK STATE:
EMPIRE STATE DEVELOPMENT HAS DEEMED SPECIFIC REAL ESTATE BROKERAGE ACTIVITIES AS “ESSENTIAL“. LIMITED OPERATIONS MAY RESUME IN COMPLIANCE WITH "NEW YORK STATE ON PAUSE"
The following functions of real estate and/or REALTORS are considered essential: residential home showings; home inspections; and residential appraisers.
This designation is a recognition by the state that real estate licensees, real estate home inspectors and real estate appraisers provide a critical service to New York, which is vital to the wellbeing not only of New Yorkers but also for New York’s local and state economy. However, as you prepare to conduct those services for your clients that have been deemed essential, NYSAR reminds all its members that they must fully comply with Governor Andrew Cuomo’s New York State PAUSE directive, which says that “essential businesses must continue to comply with the guidance and directives for maintaining a clean and safe work environment issued by the Department of Health and every business, even if essential, is strongly urged to maintain social distance to the extent possible.”
