In order to understand how shelter in place and stay at home orders are impacting the real estate industry across the country, the Redfin legal team has put together a resource that tracks state and metro area orders, what they mean for real estate, and where real estate is considered an “essential service.”
Thanks to Kelly Lennox, Jane Leuchter, Adrienne McKelvey and the entire Redfin COVID-19 Service Response team for putting this data together to help us understand the impact of essential service lists, shelter in place orders and stay at home orders on real estate.
This map and list will be updated as the situation changes.
