Other sectors of business have slowed down due to COVID-19, commonly known as coronavirus, but the U.S. real estate market is still strong, spurred in part by historically low mortgage interest rates.

While Otter Tail County has been diligently combating COVID-19, we are also monitoring the situation closely. We are operating under an abundance of caution for the health and safety of buyers, sellers and our staff.

We’ve always provided safe and clean office environments for our clients and we remain committed to upholding the highest standards of cleanliness so you can feel at ease when you visit us at the office. Plus, there is enough room for us to spread out and practice social distancing when we do meet.


coronavirus safetyIn addition to Department of Health recommendations, there are a few things we will do specific to our industry. When we are showing you a property, you are welcome to drive your own vehicle. We would be happy to open doors for you to avoid surface touching (you are also welcome to bring your own hand sanitizer). If you or someone in your party is not feeling well, we would be happy to reschedule your appointment.

Of course, there is much we can do together electronically- over the phone and internet with both buyers and sellers- this is a normal part of our process. We ask that you do stay home if you are sick or think you may have come in contact with someone with the coronavirus.

Please visit the Minnesota Department for Health for the most up to date information on Covid 19.
