Inside this issue
  NVR serving as leader to get real estate industry back on track in Nevada  
  The Nevada REALTORS®, has been working in conjunction with the Real Estate Division to create a plan to prepare a Roadmap to Reopen Nevada for Real Estate Licensees.  We remain on the forefront of bringing the real estate industry back as well as rebuilding the economy of the State.  Some of the critical areas we have considered are the reopening of Nevada's brokerages, educating the industry's licensees and, most importantly, protecting the general public. 
Our goal of preparing a well thought out plan of action, early on, from the beginning, is to reduce the economic hardship of those Nevadans in the real estate sector quicker.  This will not only benefit our communities and state but also preserve the strides that all Nevadans have made in mitigating the COVID-19 pandemic. This will allow for real estate licensees to create a pathway forward towards the reopening of the industry and return of the marketplace.
We are asking that you be patient as we navigate the coming weeks and months and as always keep you up to date on information as it comes available.  Please check your emails for a Special Edition E-News TOMORROW where we will answer your questions about open houses and in-person showings. Check your messages from us weekly so you are sure to receive updates.  You can always email the legal information line at with any questions. 


  COVID-19: Workplace Re-Entry Checklist from NAR  

Businesses should devise a multi-faceted and phased approach to the workforce's re-entry to the workplace, which takes into account guidance, regulations, and orders issued by federal, state and local governments and agencies, including the World Health Organization (WHO), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), and The White House

Consider establishing a cross-functional COVID-19 Task Force, with representatives from across the organization, including human resources, legal, and facility operations, to prepare and monitor the re-entry of the workforce, as well as the evolving circumstances surrounding COVID-19. This checklist provides an overview of some of the key considerations the COVID-19 Task Force should consider when developing the organization's plan for the workforce's re-entry to the workplace.

  Senator Rosen shares insights during webinar with NVR members  
  Nevada REALTORS® was proud to host Senator Jacky Rosen (D-NV) for a Town Hall meeting to discuss issues impacting its 18,000-plus members statewide, specifically issues arising from the current COVID 19 crisis. More than 300 NVR members registered and attended a ZOOM webinar, featuring the Senator Monday.

Rosen, Nevada's junior U.S. Senator after being elected in the fall of 2018, fielded many questions but hot topics certainly focused on the federal Paycheck Protection Plan and the hurdles that have come in its implementation. The Economic Injury Disaster Loan program was another key issue. Rosen also invited Joe Amato, the District Director for the Small Business Administration's Nevada District, to attend the webinar as her guest and help field questions. 

The webinar was not recorded for playback however the Senator said she welcomes follow-up questions. View Rosen's website here.   


  REALTORS®: 77% of potential sellers prepping to sell after end of stay-at-home orders  

More than 3 in 4 potential sellers - 77% - are preparing to sell their homes following the end of stay-at-home orders, with half completing do-it-yourself home improvement projects, according to a new survey from the National Association of Realtors®.

"After a pause, home sellers are gearing up to list their properties with the reopening of the economy," said NAR Chief Economist Lawrence Yun. "Plenty of buyers also appear ready to take advantage of record-low mortgage rates and the stability that comes with these locked-in monthly payments into future years."
