Today, we are faced with several new challenges regarding how Real Estate will be affected due to the worldwide Coronavirus pandemic. We should expect that property showings will be slow since we are required to social distance and in some cases “Shelter in Place”. We will see our market get a later start to our Spring Listing Season as in years before, we would see that would have just begun.
We are still out showing properties, however, we are following strict guidelines to comply with social distancing. We are following our clients instead of riding in the same car to ensure the 6-foot rule, using hand sanitizer frequently before and after entering a property, refraining from touching surfaces, and staying home if we are not feeling well.
In South Lake Tahoe currently, the Casinos, restaurants and bars, some hotels, and other local business are closed until further notice. It will be interesting to see when our town will be back up and running!
Until then, wash your hands and stay well!
