In-Person Open Houses Allowed in Los Angeles County
Friday, May 14, 2021 @ 02:23 PM

Open houses are now allowed in Los Angeles County as long as social distancing and sanitation guidelines are followed.

The County Health Officer Order has been revised to update the guidance for residential and commercial real estate services to ALLOW in-person open houses so long as social distancing and sanitation can be maintained. This culminates work that GLAR and other trade associations have been advocating for within the County to bring its showings and open house guidance in line with the State's May 12th update allowing open houses.

You can read the updated Health Officer Order here. The changes are also reflected on the County's COVID-19 website. Agents are strongly encouraged to maintain proper social distancing of 6 feet between buyer parties during showings and/or open houses. Capacity limits are determined by these practical considerations as well as the state’s reopening guidance. LA County is currently in the Yellow tier, meaning that no more than 50 people should be present within a property.

In order to host an in-person open house, you must be in compliance with the regulations in Appendix A (social distancing).

C.A.R. has also updated their guidance on showings and in-person open houses to help REALTORS® be compliant with the updated regulations. A new Quick Guide has been released providing additional details on how to safely operate in-person open houses. Please note, there are still sign-in requirements on-site.

The latest open house guidance from C.A.R. is as follows:

The newly revised forms PRE, BPPP, PEAD, as well as the new Property Sign-in PSI form and new Listing Addendum LOHA form will all be available on zipForm as soon as possible.

Please check with your brokerage about any brokerage-specific guidelines or policies before scheduling any open houses.

To get ready for your Open Houses and marketing needs, the GLAR store is offering a 25% discount on all Open House products plus a free tee-shirt* with purchase through May 31st.
