COVID 19 Update

Dear Valued Customers & Clients,

  We understand that everyone may have concerns about the COVID-19 Pandemic. We are all closely monitoring the situation, as it changes day by day.

  Summer Rentals: COVID-19 is certainly beyond our control, and it is too soon to know the impact that it will have for the upcoming summer rental season. If you have purchased travel insurance, as we encouraged tenants to do on all short-term rental leases, then you should contact your travel insurance carrier to ask specific questions, regarding their coverage for this particular virus. Please refer to travel guidelines and information on the CDC website:(https://coronavirus.delaware.gov//), World Health Organizations, and State of Delaware website: www.delaware.gov for all the latest information in regards to COVID-19. As always, we are continuing to monitor the Coronavirus Pandemic and will update you as more information becomes available.

  Real Estate Sales: Customers have been inquiring as to whether we are still able to show property and work on real estate sales in general. The Governor of Delaware has issued specific guidelines to all Real Estate professionals, stating that we are able to show property, so long as we take the recommended precautions in order to reduce the spread of the virus, including social distancing. Please be sure that you are not sick and/or running a fever before setting appointments, and we will not accept appointments from clients/customers that have had known contact with a person who has been diagnosed with the virus. We are keeping our office CLOSED TO THE PUBLIC and strictly sanitizing all areas. We also have reduced the number of staff that have access to our office. We can work by appointment, and we are able to execute contracts and many other necessary real estate documents via the internet, by electronic signature. We are not permitted to do Open Houses or to have any large gatherings. Everyone's safety and health is our primary concern. We will make further changes to our policies and procedures in compliance with the State and Federal guidelines as necessary.

As always we thank you for your business and hope that you stay safe and healthly!
