Frequently Asked Questions
General FAQs (rev. 8/2/2021)
Most COVID-related rules directly affecting real estate have been rescinded by Federal, state and local governments. PAR recommends remaining current on updated CDC guidance regarding issues like testing, quarantine and mask usage, as well as any local government policies that may still be in place.
Businesses, of course, are still permitted to impose additional restrictions if they care to (as is always the case), and it is certainly possible that clients - particularly sellers - may wish to set certain restrictions as part of their business relationship.
Please read through our current FAQ for more information. These materials have been updated to reflect the current status of rules & restrictions. If there's something you remember hearing about that doesn't show up here, then it's likely not in place any longer.
