From: Governor Jay Inslee
There are thousands of real estate and mortgage transactions currently pending in Washington State. Most transactions are for residential properties, with people already in transition out of/into new residences. Significant legal liability and displacement (if not homelessness), could occur if these transactions do not close. Pending/under contract sales should be allowed to close, using remote/electronic means whenever possible, and following social distancing guidelines if remote/electronic closing cannot occur. For homeowners in distress related to the COVID-19 event, it is important that they have the option to sell their home or pursue a refinance or residential mortgage loan modification.
While real estate activities along with mortgage lending activities have been approved as essential activities under the Proclamation, such activities shall only be permitted under the following restrictions and limitations:a) In-person meetings with customers are prohibited except when necessary for a customer to view a property or sign necessary documents;
b) No real estate open houses shall be permitted;
c) Property viewings, inspections, appraisals, and final walk-throughs shall be arranged by appointment and limited to no more than two people on site at any one time, exercising social distancing at all times; and
d) Except for the limited exceptions authorized above, all new real estate listings shall be facilitated remotely.
Our health and safety of our clients and our community is STILL a number ONE priority. We will be limiting personal interactions to the greatest extent possible and will engage in-person only when necessary, and by following these strict protocols.
If you or anyone you know has any questions regarding the changes that have been made today. Please don’t hesitate to contact me at (425) 446-1744 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I look forward to serving you all safely and effectively.
Stay healthy, Stay Safe!
