Agents in Silicon Valley, California and throughout the United States are scrambling to learn what they can and cannot do for clients during the time of Coronavirus 19, AKA COVID-19. To help agents, on March 20, the California Association of REALTORS published the "COVID-19 Guide for Open Houses and Showings (see below)." Here is one important excerpt for Bay Area agents: "Know that the decision to host an open house remains at the discretion of you and your seller. In addition, local government and health authorities may alter what is permissible in a given area at a given time. For example, in the Bay Area there should probably be no open houses held for the next three weeks." CAR also produced a new Addendum/Amendment form for use with current contracts specifically addressing COVID-...

The local MLSListings suspended the accrual of all DOM (Days On Market) Through April 7, the current expiration date of Silicon Valley's "Shelter in Place" order, which was established to prevent the spread of Coronavirus 19 (AKA COVID-19).While I personally know of home showings and sales still occurring, I'm curious to learn if this is this happening in other parts of California and different states as well. See the recent update below."In light of the Shelter in Place (SIP) order, the MLSListings Board of Directors approved a policy to suspend the accrual of days on market (DOM) on all listings from March 17, 2020 until the SIP order is rescinded. Specifically, this means that: All Active listings will stop accruing DOM effective March 17, 2020. Any DOM accrued prior to March 17, 202...

Can real estate agents legally engage in face to face, in-person real estate activities, such as listing appointments, showing houses, hosting open houses and meeting inspectors at homes with California's current "shelter in place" order?As readers of my post,"Are Real Estate Agent Activities Essential Services?" know, I reached out to our California Association of REALTORS Legal Hotline to speak with an attorney for the answer and interpretation of the law under the state's mandatory "shelter in place" order. While many of us in real estate equate housing with shelter, it's important to know the California law does not. "As I interpret it, the order says to 'shelter in place', meaning stay in whatever shelter you are currently in-not seek new housing or a different shelter unless you a...

Facts to Protect Against COVID-19 in Silicon Valley, Calif.As Santa Clara and other Bay Area counties mandate "shelter in place" orders to help limit the spread of the pandemic Coronavirus 19 (COVID-19), it's important to know and share the facts to protect friends, family, colleagues, neighbors and loved ones. When emotions get high (as when in a panic), intelligence goes down. Take a deep breath, remain calm, read these facts, and of course, wash your hands.    Information About COVID-19 From CDC, CDPH, Red Cross The Centers for Disease Control (CDC), California Department of Public Health, Santa Clara County Health Department and the Red Cross all provide valuable information for ways you and your families can best protect yourselves at home, at work, and at school in the Bay Area co...

Part-Time Jobs, Second Jobs and Your Mortgage Application I remember thumbing through the Recycler in Los Angeles when I first moved out there as a teenager.  Living on a shoestring budget, I was especially intrigued by the ads that promised the ability to make thousands per month while sitting in the comfort(?) of your home.  In my mind, that meant I could keep my day job, practice guitar eight hours and day and still have some other check rolling in without too much trouble.  Who wouldn't like that?  I never actually pursued any of these trinket-making, envelope-stuffing, part-soldering side hustles, but the reality of part-time income, either as a primary or supplemental source of monthly revenue, is appealing to many and necessary for some.  But what happens when these individuals m...
