Governor’s Executive Order and How it Affects Real Estate

New Jersey Realtors has advised that if we receive questions about Governor Murphy’s latest executive order, please know that NJR is currently seeking guidance. The following response details their current position:


We have been working to get clarification from the governor’s office on how Executive Order 107 affects real estate. We have, as we have been all throughout this pandemic, been in contact with the governor’s office with regard to clarification on what real estate practices are allowable during the time period the Executive Order is in effect. Click here to read the letter sent to the governor’s office earlier today that outlines our understanding of the order.


If a real estate office does choose to open for Realtors®, we strongly advise you follow all guidance recommended by the CDC. As a reminder, all businesses must accommodate their workforce for telework or work from home arrangements wherever possible, “except for those members of the workforce who cannot perform their functions outside of the office.” If your office is open, it should operate with the smallest number of individuals as possible. 


Again, thank you for your message and keep following our Facebook page or Instagram for the latest updates.


We are working to provide you the most up-to-date information, and the situation is rapidly evolving. Please watch your email for additional updates as we receive them.
