General Guidelines:

The CDC urges individuals to take these measures to protect themselves and others:

  • Wash your hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water aren’t available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Practice social distancing by staying out of crowded places, avoiding group gatherings, and maintaining distance (approximately 6 feet) from others when possible.
  • Avoid close contact with anyone who is sick.
  • Stay home if you have a fever, cough, shortness of breath or any other cold or flu-like symptom.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze, or cough or sneeze into your sleeve.

Showings will be held by appointment only and will continue as allowed by Seller clients.  Social distancing guidelines and best practices must be followed.  Use of hand sanitizer and gloves is encouraged.

Sellers should turn on all lights and open all closet/cabinet doors to keep touching to a minimum. Sellers may also want to have a selection of personal hygiene products like hand sanitizer available for buyers to use while they are viewing your home.

Buyer agents should leave the house as it was found and wipe down all doorknobs, light switches etc., with a disinfectant wipe if contact is necessary.

Use teleconferencing to negotiate contracts.  There are several video options including Facetime, Zoom, Google Meet, etc.   We have an e-signing program available to sign documents relating to listing your home or completing the sales contract.

Our partners have also taken steps to encourage social distancing and protecting health.

Security 1st Title is our title company partner with offices in each of our locations.  They have set forth these guidelines:

Closing Process:

  • Security 1st Title has e-sign capabilities available for documents that do not require a notary, subject to lender approval.
  • For documents requiring a notary, we provide the following options:
  1. ON PREMISES – We ask the signor to wait in their vehicle until the time of their signing. When they enter our office, they will be escorted directly to the closing room. Our closing staff will remain at the recommended safe distance from all parties at all times and perform the closing and notarize the documents in the room. New pens will be furnished for each closing.
  2. CURBSIDE – The signing parties may choose to remain in their vehicle. They can call our office to notify our closing staff where they are parked, and a member of our closing team will greet them at their vehicle, witness the execution of their documents, and notarize their signature after verifying their ID.
  3. MOBILE NOTARY – The signing parties can inform our closing staff of their location, and a mobile notary will be employed to greet them at that location, when available in that area. Additional fees will apply.

Sierra Pacific, our mortgage partner has initiated an electronic closing process so only the notary pages need to be signed at closing. Buyers still have to sign loan docs the day of closing, but we will send them first thing the morning of. This will speed up the closing process and keep clients and closers safe.  For more information contact one of our Mortgage Lender partners:
