Michigan Requirements for Real Estate

Friday, May 15, 2020

Requirements of Executive Order:

  1. All in-person meetings with sellers and showings must be done by appointment.
  2. All persons must maintain a 6-foot social distance at all times.


 Additional mitigation measures to consider:

  1. Use photographs, virtual showings and floor plans to help buyer clients narrow down their housing needs and wants prior to any in-person showings. Provide marketing materials electronically in advance of a showing. Encourage buyers to be pre-approved.
  2. Avoid consecutive multiple showings and overlapping appointments.
  3. Encourage sellers not to be present during the showing and to turn on all of the lights and leave interior doors, drapes and blinds open before leaving.
  4. Recommend that sellers clean and disinfect all frequently touched surfaces prior to and after the showing.
  5. Agents are encouraged to meet their clients at the home for a showing and clients are asked to wait in their cars until the agent arrives.
  6. The use of masks and gloves are encouraged while viewing a home and buyers are asked to refrain from touching any surfaces.
  7. Limit attendance at showings to those who need to view the home. Properly dispose of show covers/gloves in an appropriate receptacle provided by the seller before continuing to another showing. Avoid hanging around to discuss a home while outside the property.
