Legal Q&A | New Onsite Preview Addendum Released
QUESTION: My real estate firm is located in an area where a local "stay at home" order restricts showings of listed properties. I have seen several attorney-drafted forms that make it possible for a buyer and seller to put a property under contract "sight unseen" and that give the buyer a short period of time to then conduct an onsite visual inspection of the property before deciding whether to continue with the transaction. That would be a helpful form for my agents to be able to offer to their clients, and I was wondering if the NC REALTORS® is giving consideration to creating a form like that?
Over the past several days, NC REALTORS® has received questions from members across the state regarding the COVID-19 pandemic. Here are examples of some of the questions we have received, and the guidance we are giving in response to those questions.

Being on the ground in communities across the state, we want to hear from you, our members. We will be conducting these surveys every few weeks while these orders remain in place. We are starting with understanding the residential market, but we will be releasing surveys looking at other sectors of the market soon.
