  CNBC: CDC banned evictions, but some renters still vulnerable  

Landlords are also concerned that the eviction ban wasn't paired with rental aid to tenants.

When the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced last month that most evictions nationwide were banned until the end of December, it came as little relief to Eric Smith. All the single father can think about now is what will happen when the moratorium lifts.

"How do we come out of this tunnel?" Smith, 49, said. " Homeless? Hungry? I worry about it every day." Smith hasn't been able to work during the coronavirus pandemic and has quickly depleted his small savings.

  September is NAR Safety Month  

Situations Where REALTORS® Feel the Most Unsafe

On the heels of two recent incidents-one involving an armed man hiding in a vacant home and the other involving the attempted abduction of an agent-it's important for real estate professionals to understand the types of situations in which they are most vulnerable and how to protect themselves. As September is REALTOR® Safety Month, the National Association of REALTORS® has released its 2020 Member Safety Report, showing that practitioners feel most vulnerable when meeting with unknown clients at vacant properties. "Being aware of potential dangers and empowering themselves with precautions and preparations will help REALTORS® avoid risky situations on the job-and could mean the difference between life and death," according to NAR's report.

This year's survey revealed the situations where real estate professionals feared the most for their personal safety. Click here to read all about those.
