Covid 19 and Real Estate

The recent outbreak of Covid 19 is having a profound effect on the real estate market across the country.

Here in Massachusetts, recent government orders have significantly curtailed real estate open houses and other social gatherings. In addition, inspections of smoke and carbon monoxide detectors normally required prior to a closing may be deferred if the buyer contractually assumes responsibility for installing the detectors and the subsequent inspection happens within 90 days of the conclusion of the COVID-19 emergency.

For our part, due to the Governor’s advisories, our business office at 145 South Main Street in Bradford, Massachusetts will be closed to the public until further notice. However, we are actively advising clients (long-term and new ones!) on the real estate market via phone and e-mail. So, if you have any questions you’d like to talk about, please feel free to contact us. We look forward to hearing from you!
