Hello @weknowphilly clients and friends!
Today, Governor Tom Wolf issued an order that allows real estate to open on a statewide basis effective Tuesday, May 19, subject to certain guidelines:
“All businesses in the real estate industry, which includes real estate professionals, appraisers, notaries, title companies, settlement service providers, escrow officers, home inspectors, mortgage loan originators, processors, and underwriters, and other necessary office personnel including IT professionals, and back office staff necessary to maintain office operations, are permitted to conduct in-person operations for properties located in counties which have designated as being in the Red and Yellow phases, so long as they strictly adhere to the requirements of this guidance.”
Our team, brokerage and Pennsylvania Association of REALTORS are reviewing the guidance documents so that we can be informed on what we will need to do moving forward to sell real estate safely and responsibly. Feel free to get in touch before you hear from us next.
