COVID-19 Guidelines for Showing Property

key west modern house

Real estate has been deemed an essential service by the most current orders from the Governor, City of Key West and Monroe County and they permit continuance of the activities necessary to perform real estate services to include showing property to qualified buyers.

CBSREC has chosen to keep all of its offices open and staffed every day, working to promote our sellers’ properties safely and responsibly along with the full range of our services to buyers. This includes our office at 1201 White St in Key West.

We have been instructed on how to follow the COVID-19 protocols as specified by the Center for Disease Control. Our office has been amply supplied with hand sanitizers, disinfecting wipes, gloves, and any other required materials. Social distancing is being practiced in our offices.

We have established the following guidelines concerning the showing of listings.

  • We are prequalifying Buyers to a greater extent than usual, especially in the realm of financing
  • Following that, prospective Buyers will be shown as much property information as possible remotely.  Search the Florida Keys MLS here and view Video Tours of our featured listings at Sean Farrer P.A. YouTube Channel. Video in addition to full-screen photos of each property listed by CBSREC is available on and Coldwell Banker Schmitt’s YouTube channel.  We also selectively publish seller disclosure statements, surveys, elevation certificates, insurance costs, etc., so that they can determine if the property fits their needs.
  • Buyers will be offered the opportunity to view the property via video-sharing app prior to physically visiting the property
  • We will follow CDC safe practices protocols when Buyers who are inside the Keys are visiting the property. (it will be difficult for Buyers outside the Keys to gain access without a contract in place before showing which will give them the legal right to inspect the property prior to closing.
  •  All steps to be taken will be discussed with the Seller in advance.
