COVID-19 and Seattle Real Estate

We are complying with Governor Inslee's Stay Home, Stay Healthy Order


With regards to conducting real estate business in Washington state:

- All in-person activities are conducted by appointment only. Showings, inspections, appraisals, etc. 

- No more than two people, including the real estate agent, may be inside of a property at any one time. When these activities happen, all parties are practicing social distancing and staying a minimum of 6 feet apart, per CDC guidelines.



Frequently Asked Questions


Q: What is NOT permitted at this time?
A: Open Houses. All showings must be done by appointment, and only two people at a time inside the property.

Q: How will I sign documents?
A: Electronically, using our safe and secure electronic signature program Authentisign.

Q: I need to sell my home. What can I do to limit the number of times someone else has to come into my home? 
A: We will use professional photos and a listing video to show off the selling features of your home online. In accordance with the Stay Home, Stay Healthy order, Open Houses are not permitted at this time. If your home is vacant, we may choose to conduct a virtual Open House and stream it live for potential buyers to attend. Additionally, we will do our best to limit in-person showings to buyers who are pre-qualified with a lender. All appointments will be scheduled ahead of time, and we will provide guidance to anyone who enters your property that they are required to wear a non-surgical mask and gloves.

Q: What about closing? Don't I have to sign a big pile of documents?
A: Thankfully, our preferred title company, First American, has a brand new eClosing system that allows our clients to do a fully remote closing. The documents that need to be notarized will be signed by you during a video conferencing session called a Remote Online Notarization (RON).
