Chatham, NJ, June 23, 2020 --- We are pleased to announce that our in-person open houses are now available to buyers interested in seeing homes in the areas we service, including Essex, Morris, Somerset, and Union counties.

Despite changes, we have experienced in recent weeks, demand for homes remains strong. As seasoned real estate agents, we have successfully navigated the challenging 2020 real estate market with focused safety measures and early adoption of a virtual platform to help clients identify properties that match their unique needs. As businesses reopen, our online options continue allowing home buyers to prioritize listings that interest them so that we may efficiently schedule in-person showings and open houses. 

Buyers are now in a good position to purchase a home or an investment property. Historically low-interest rates and appealing list prices make today’s real estate market especially attractive to first-time buyers as well as buyers who don’t need to sell a home.

The health and safety of each of our clients, guests, and sales associates is our priority. For this reason, we will be strictly following Centers of Disease Control (CDC) and Prevention Guidelines, including:

  • Confirming that all occupants of the home are feeling well, free of symptoms, 
    and do not have COVID-19 
  • Posting a sign on the front door with health screening requirements
    and other open house policies / requests
  • Posting directional interior traffic-flow signs to maximize safe distancing
  • Disinfecting all common-touch surfaces, including door knobs, drawer pulls / knobs, 
    and counters
  • Providing two sales associates per open house to ensure safety requirements 
    and allow for a house tour with answers to guests’ questions
  • Registering all guests who wish to enter the home
  • Requiring that all sales associates and guests wear a mask
  • Requesting that guests refrain from making contact with common-touch surfaces 
    unless they are wearing gloves
  • Limiting guests to one party at a time and asking other guests to wait outside 
    until the previous party has exited the home
  • Ensuring that guests and sales associates maintain a safe social distance of 6+ feet

We are consistently committed to accomplishing many goals to help you purchase the home of your dreams, including:

  • Being readily available by phone to answer all your questions
  • Directing you to virtual tours that can help narrow your choices for in-person showings
  • Scheduling in-person showings and updating you on open houses
  • Conducting FaceTime or Zoom appointments as needed
  • Helping you with the online mortgage application process
  • Guiding you about closing options

It is possible to achieve your goals and stay safe. Although health and safety will continue being our greatest priority, physical distancing and safe hygiene need not prevent us from making progress with real estate.

Given the many advantages our areas offer, including outstanding schools, safe neighborhoods, beautiful homes, and easy access to New York City, local real estate continues to be a sound investment.
