Open Houses During a Zombie Apocalypse [Video]

 

Residential real estate is considered an essential service, but we no longer host public open houses during health crises.

You may wonder how realtors show properties these days. Well, we do this mindfully with our clients’ health and safety in mind. Firstly, before entry, all visitors must sign a PEAD-V form and we schedule a private tour with agents. All buyers/visitors need to sign the PEAD-V every day they tour properties. 

 

The rules outlined by the new posted pictogram which are posted in homes simply state everyone to:

a) wear a mask

b) stay six feet apart

c) wash your hands upon entry

d) discard all PPE after visit

e) Do not touch anything unnecessarily

 

The PEAD-V form includes an eight page “Best Practices Guidelines and Prevention Plan for Showings.”

It requires all listing agents to ensure:

1) That the “rules” are followed during showings (no touching surfaces, masks worn, ext.)

2) That handrails, light switches, clipboards, knobs, toilet handles, keyboards, and other commonly touched areas need to be wiped down with disinfectant before and after showings (soap/towel, Lysol wipes)

3) Soap or sanitizer needs to be available

4) Doors must be left open to outside to allow for fresh air

5) Doors throughout inside must be left open to decrease need for opening by visitors.

Be Well!
