As of Tuesday, March 23rd, Denver Mayor Michael Hancock has ordered residents of the city and county of Denver to stay at home, and all non-essential businesses to close their offices. On Wednesday March 25th Adams, Arapahoe, Douglas and Jefferson Counties have announced similar orders.
Fortunately, real estate is exempted from these order as an essential service. In any case, we are making adjustments to our processes in order to make sure that our clients in Denver can continue to rely on us while complying with the important restrictions in this order.
Here’s what this latest order means for you as a valued Trelora client:
- You can still reach your agent any time. Our team is still working remotely, and because we’ve developed agent tools that enable us to work seamlessly as a team, you still have access to the great customer service you’ve come to expect.
- Closings will still occur as scheduled. Title insurance also qualifies as an essential service, so Signloc and other title companies are still able to complete closings. Signloc’s team is also prepared to conduct closings via document drop-off, video conference, and document pickup for clients who prefer. We’ll go to any lengths necessary to get your transaction closed and funded on time while maintaining a safe distance.
- Showings and listing consultations may be conducted remotely. We know it’s not ideal to not be able to see a home in person, but we also know that distancing is paramount as we do our part to limit the impact of this pandemic. We are working with Trelora sellers to conduct self-showings over video conference when necessary. For buyers interested in viewing homes listed by other brokerages, Trelora will coordinate on your behalf with the listing agent and the seller to conduct the best possible showing experience while maintaining distancing.
- We will teach you how to show your own home. As we prepare for a potentially extended period of sheltering in place, we are developing a guide to help sellers take their own video walkthroughs and conduct remote showings for prospective buyers. We will share this with all of our sellers and make it available to the public and our colleagues in the real estate community as soon as it is complete.
If you have any questions, please contact your agent or give us a call. We’re glad to be here for you whether you have questions about your real estate transaction or are just looking for a friendly voice during the uncertainty of this difficult time.
As always, thank you for choosing Trelora.
