Sedgwick County Mask Mandate

Friday, July 10 2020 9:30 AM
Categorized In REALTORS®

Dear Members,

 

As you are all likely aware, the cities and counties in our region have established mandates requiring masks in public spaces.  As REALTORS®, we firmly believe that these guidelines should be strictly adhered to while performing all real estate transactions.  Since it is our duty as public servants and professionals in our community to provide a commitment to the health and safety of others, this mandate should be followed to protect our clients and ourselves. 

 

As published during the initial onset of the Coronavirus pandemic, please revisit the following guidelines for showings:

  • Provide suggestions to sellers on how to prepare their home for showings: lights on, closet doors open, and hand sanitizer, gloves, and booties available at the front door
  • Suggest that the seller cleans surfaces before leaving, and again when returning home
  • Instruct the buyers to refrain from touching surfaces in the house
  • Leave the house the way you find it
  • Restrict house viewings to the decision-makers only

 

We also encourage you to visit with your sellers to establish requirements that they would like to have in place for the safety of all parties involved.

A general recap of the mandate requires that individuals must wear masks or face coverings:

  • Inside any indoor or outdoor public space where social distancing of six feet is not possible
  • In line and waiting to enter an indoor public space
  • Obtaining services from the healthcare sector
  • Using public transportation or in a taxi or ride-sharing vehicle


You can view Sedgwick County’s requirements, exceptions, inclusions, and the entire emergency health order here.  The order was effective 12:01 a.m., July 10, and will be in place until at least Sunday, August 9. The order also calls for Phase 3 of the Ad Astra Plan to be adopted and incorporated into this order, thereby limiting mass gatherings to no more than 45 individuals in one location where social distancing is not possible.

 

Thank you for your commitment to the health and safety of our community.  The groundwork that we implement now will have a ripple effect for days and years to come. 

 

Please contact us directly if you have any questions.

 

Thank you.

RPAC Enables Legislative Wins for REALTORS® During Pandemic

Tuesday, June 16 2020 8:34 AM
Categorized In REALTORS®

Policy response to COVID-19 has been swift and the advocacy arm of your REALTOR® Association has been busy representing your interests at all levels of government. 

Here is a brief overview of polices benefiting our membership:

Local
  • RSCK was successful in its efforts to lobby the Sedgwick County Commission to include Real Estate Services as essential during the original county-imposed stay at home order in late March. This meant REALTORS®, as well as all of the additional service providers necessary to complete a transaction, were authorized to continue business operations.
State
  • KAR was successful in its efforts to lobby the Governor to include Real Estate Services as essential in her Executive Order that superseded local authority across the state also in late March.
  • Recently, KAR was a part of a consortium that pushed a property tax relief, and reform, bill through both houses of the Kansas legislature. If signed by Governor Kelly, among others, this bill will do the following:
    • Delays interest and penalties for the May 10 property tax payment until August 11; and
    • Repeals the current property tax lid in favor of a truth in taxation concept (if a local government wants to increase revenue they receive from property taxes, they would need to provide notice, hold a hearing and make a specific vote to accept any new revenue).
Federal
  • NAR was absolutely essential in securing the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) and Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA) Programs provisions of the CARES Act for REALTORS®.
  • The PPP loans are intended to cover expenses for a business during any 8-week period between February 15, 2020 and June 30, 2020. They can be used for payroll costs, rents, mortgage interest, and utilities. Those eligible include sole proprietors and independent contractors.
  • The PUA program is a temporary program that provides assistance to individuals, including self-employed and independent contractors, who are fully or partially unemployed as a direct result of the COVID-19 public health emergency, beginning January 27, 2020 through December 31, 2020.

 

If you have benefited in any way from one, many, or all of these measures, please thank your fellow REALTORS® who invest in the REALTORS® Political Action Committee (RPAC).  Undoubtedly, RPAC has been the mechanism to enable across-the-board REALTOR success in attaining these benefits.  RPAC gives our industry political credibility and provides access to lawmakers.  Without it, these legislative wins during time of crisis absolutely would not have been possible.

Updated Guidance on Open Houses May 22nd

Friday, May 22 2020 12:57 PM
Categorized In REALTORS®
Based on the revised Kansas reopen plan issued by the Governor this week, Phase 2 begins today, May 22nd, and is limited to gatherings of 15 people (not 30). Phase 3 is scheduled for June 8th, and will increase to gatherings of 45 people.
 
Based on the revised plan, South Central Kansas MLS has re-enabled the ability to schedule in-person open houses in Paragon. You should continue to observe the gathering limits as well as maintaining 6-foot social distancing. Frequent disinfecting of commonly touched surfaces and signs requesting that visitors refrain from touching surfaces in the home can also help prevent the spread of COVID-19.
 
See the following link for detailed guidance from the Governor on the reopen plan:
 
You can still use live streaming open houses as an alternative to in-person open houses. The ability to hold an open house is ultimately the decision of the broker and the seller. We will continue to offer guidance at the local, state and national level and continue to convey the requirements set by our state and federal governments.
 

Application for Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA) benefits is now open in Kansas

Tuesday, May 12 2020 6:35 PM
Categorized In REALTORS®
The Kansas Department of Labor (KDOL) announced it has begun accepting Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA) applications as of today.  
 
PUA is a broad program enacted by the Federal CARES Act that expands access to unemployment, in addition to what state and federal law already pay. This includes those who traditionally are not able to get unemployment (e.g. REALTORS®).
 
As a reminder, make sure you have already applied for and been denied for regular unemployment insurance benefits.
 
All PUA applications will be completed online at  http://PUA.GetKansasBenefits.gov.
 
KDOL is expecting payments to be issued starting May 25.
 
Please review the following information prior to applying to understand this process:

Updated Guidance on Open Houses May 6, 2020

Wednesday, May 6 2020 5:57 PM
Categorized In REALTORS®
Based on evaluation of the Kansas reopen plan issued by the Governor last week, South Central Kansas MLS has concluded that open houses do not meet the guidelines established in Phase 1 of the reopen plan. As expressed in Phase 1, mass gatherings of no more than 10 individuals are allowed and individuals must maintain 6-foot social distancing. Open houses have the potential to contradict both requirements.
 
SCK MLS has determined that marketing of open houses in the MLS system will continue to be suspended until Kansas enters Phase 2 of the reopen plan, which is currently projected to start on May 18th. 
 
In Phase 2 of the plan there continues to be a requirement to maintain 6-foot social distance, but mass gatherings are increased to no more than 30 individuals. Once we enter phase 2, SCK MLS plans to begin marketing open houses in the MLS system.
 
See the following link for detailed guidance from the Governor on the reopen plan:
 
We recommend live streaming open houses as an alternative. The ability to hold an open house is ultimately the decision of the broker and the seller. We will continue to offer guidance at the local, state and national level and continue to convey the requirements set by our state and federal governments.

RSCK CARES Act Webinar Continues

Thursday, April 16 2020 2:37 PM
Categorized In REALTORS®
As you may have heard, the Small Business Administration’s $349 billion Paycheck Protection Program officially ran out of money this morning (April 16, 2020). Our CARES Act webinar will continue to be offered as scheduled to provide education on these programs so that you can gear up and be prepared to apply once additional program funding is available.
 
From SBA website-

“SBA is currently unable to accept new applications for the Paycheck Protection Program based on available appropriations funding. Similarly, we are unable to enroll new PPP lenders at this time."

 

Handout #1 for Webinar

Handout #2

Handout #3

 

 
The CARES Act webinar continues to take place tomorrow, Friday, April 17, 01:00 PM Central Time (US and Canada).
 
The 2020 CARES ACT provides STIMULUS funds for individuals, business owners, and the self employed. Accountants know very little about the funds available to their clients and that is why you must attend this webinar.
 
Dale and Chris have completed over a dozen of these webinars and have
had their material posted to the National Association of REALTORS® website, Residential Real Estate Council (RRC), and local REALTOR® Associations in various locations nationwide. Many REALTORS® have been told that they do not qualify... Dale and Chris will dispel those myths.
 
In this 1 and 1/2 hour webinar, you will leave with an ACTION PLAN on the steps you must take immediately to access your share of these funds before they run out.
 
The four programs that will be discussed in depth are:
  1. Stimulus payments and timing
  2. Economic Injury Disaster Loans and Grants
  3. Paycheck Protection Plan Program Loans
  4. REALTOR® access to State Unemployment Funds

Pandemic Unemployment Assistance Program Update

Tuesday, April 7 2020 4:20 PM
Categorized In REALTORS®
In today’s daily update with the Kansas Department of Labor (KDOL), Secretary Delia Garcia and Unemployment Insurance Deputy Director Shawn Yancy, shared the following:
 
 1.    KDOL has received guidance from the United States Department of Labor regarding implementation of the Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA) program.
 
2.    The PUA program is not yet operational at KDOL.
 
3.    KDOL is advising the self-employed to file an unemployment claim to demonstrate ineligibility for traditional unemployment insurance (UI). When asked for employment information, put your information. You should receive a denial in the mail. Though perhaps counter-intuitive, in this case, receiving a denial is positive because in order to be eligible for the Federal PUA program, you must be ineligible for traditional UI.
 
4.    Tomorrow, KDOL is hosting a Facebook live event at 3:00 p.m. CST to provide further details around their intended administration of the PUA program. All interested in PUA program benefits are encouraged to watch.

SBA Paycheck Protection Program - Independent Contractors Apply April 10

Monday, April 6 2020 5:00 PM
Categorized In REALTORS®
The SBA released its interim final rule for the program, which provides much-needed clarity on a point relevant to many real estate brokerages and REALTORS®: how should a business account for independent contractors?  
 
The final rule explicitly states that since independent contractors can apply for their own loans (beginning April 10), they should not be counted toward another business's employee headcount or its average monthly payroll costs.
 
Eligible borrowers should reach out to their lenders. 
 
To learn more about the program – who is eligible, how to apply, what borrowers need to provide to lenders, and other resources – please visit NAR's "SBA CARES Act FAQ," which has been updated with the new information from the interim rule.

CARES Act: Unemployment Benefits for Self-Employed

Friday, April 3 2020 3:00 PM
Categorized In REALTORS®
The CARES Act provides a temporary Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA) program that extends unemployment benefits to those not traditionally eligible, including self-employed individuals.
 
Here is a summary of the program that will be updated with guidance anticipated from the U.S. Department of Labor (USDOL).
 
All indications suggest the State of Kansas intends to participate in the PUA program. This morning, the Kanas Department of Labor (KDOL) Deputy Secretary, Brett Flachsbarth, stated Kansas is waiting for the aforementioned detailed guidance from the USDOL to determine how the state implements the program.
 
 
If you are self-employed and intend to apply, what you can and should do now:
 
File an initial application for benefits. It will show as a not entitled claim at first; however, the KDOL wants self-employed filers to submit claims so once the State has the additional Federal benefits, they will already have verification on file. Although awaiting guidance, the State knows there will be a requirement to file as a part of the process. Applying now and getting in the queue should help expedite the process versus waiting to apply.
 
 
Please know the KDOL is receiving an unprecedented volume of unemployment benefit applications and related questions. They are answering those questions during the KDOL morning video update held daily at 9:30 a.m., Mon-Fri.
 
For additional information, please visit the KDOL website.

CARES Act FAQ Provided by NAR

NAR’s Federal Advocacy team has been working closely with Congress and the Administration to ensure the interests of REALTORS® and their clients are protected in any federal action in response to COVID-19. Many REALTORS® are small businesses, or work with them as clients. In the most recent relief package passed into law, the "Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act" or CARES Act, there were significant provisions aimed at assisting small businesses during this difficult time. The CARES Act appropriates more than $360 billion total for new Small Business Administration (SBA) programs - the 7(a) Paycheck Protection Program loans and the Economic Injury Disaster Loans (EIDL) advance grants program. 
 
Here are a number of Q&As to address frequent questions about who is eligible and how to apply for these brand new programs created by the Administration. We continue to learn more about these relief measures daily and will update this document as events warrant. Application for the SBA PPP loan begins tomorrow, April 3, 2020.

COVID-19 Guidelines & Best Practices

Wednesday, March 25 2020 4:56 PM
Categorized In REALTORS®

RSCK’s priority is the safety, health, and well-being of our members, staff, and community. We are committed to driving REALTOR® business and economic vibrancy of our communities. As we navigate this evolving emergency together, we urge all members to consult with their leadership, managing brokers, and attorneys. The COVID-19 pandemic and response are incredibly fluid. Members are urged to monitor our communication channels for changes and updates.

 

COVID-19 Guidelines & Best Practices

As of 12:01 a.m. Wednesday morning, the citizens of Sedgwick County are under a Stay-at-Home order for the duration of 30 days. Real Estate Services are considered essential business in the order. This means real estate professionals may conduct business outside the home only if absolutely essential, and only while continuing to take proactive measures to ensure compliance with social distancing requirements. While this order is specific to the citizens in Sedgwick County, RSCK strongly encourages real estate professionals in Butler, Cowley, and Harvey counties to follow the guidance below for the health of our entire South Central Kansas community.

SCKMLS and RSCK Board of Directors issue the following guidelines and recommendations. Our goal is to provide you a better understanding of what the Stay-at-Home order means to your business.    

This document consists of two parts: guidelines and best practices. The guidelines are specific measures to maintain compliance with the “Stay-at-Home” order. The best practices are recommendations to serve the needs of your clients while complying with the order. Our classification as essential business and our ability to provide essential services are dependent on our collective actions and precautionary measures taken during this time. Please adhere to the following to the strictest degree possible.

 

PART I: GUIDELINES

Specific measures to be followed:

 

Open Houses

Open houses and broker opens are strongly discouraged. Open houses strictly contradict the health and safety guidelines currently provided by our local, state, and federal authorities to minimize the spread of the COVID-19 virus.  Marketing of open houses in the MLS system will be suspended until the “Stay-At-Home” order is lifted.

Showings

Many homeowners are not allowing in-person showings due to coronavirus concerns. If showings are not allowed, use one of the following options:

  1. The listing remains active. MLS private remarks must state that no showings are allowed and related details (reason and timeframe) and a showing block must be set up in ShowingTime. Days on market will accumulate as normal.
  2. The listing goes in withdrawn status and is no longer active. Days on market will not accumulate.

ShowingTime has implemented a “No Overlapping Showings” default so two agents will not be scheduled to be in the same property at the same time.

Property Inspections

Inspections necessary for the closing of transactions are allowed. Social distancing requirements (6 ft. separation) must be followed.

Property Appraisals

Appraisals necessary for the closing of transactions, purchase, or refinance are allowed. Social distancing requirements (6 ft. separation) must be followed.

Closing Process

Most title companies have implemented new guidelines for closings including limiting attendance at those appointments. Please contact the title company for updates on their policies.

 

PART II: BEST PRACTICES

Recommendations to provide essential services to your clients:

 

Buyer and Seller Consultations

We recommend that members refrain from face-to-face appointments, unless deemed absolutely necessary, until the “Stay-at-Home” order is lifted.

  • Arrange for online meetings or conference calls with prospective buyers and sellers
  • Email presentation materials to buyers and sellers
  • Set up automated home searches for buyers
  • Ask sellers to provide video walk-throughs of their home for listing potential
  • Obtain electronic signatures on listing or buyer agreements

Showings

In-person showings should be conducted only for serious buyers who are in a position to write an offer. Social distancing requirements (6 ft. separation) must be followed.

  • Provide suggestions to sellers on how to prepare their home for showings: lights on, closet doors open, and hand sanitizer, gloves, and booties available at the front door
  • Suggest that the seller cleans surfaces before leaving and again when returning home
  • Instruct the buyers to refrain from touching surfaces in the house
  • Leave the house the way you find it
  • Restrict house viewings to the decision-makers only

Contract to Closing

Business related to the closing of transactions is considered essential. Best practices during this process are critical.

  • Sign all contract paperwork electronically and use online meetings or conference calls to review
  • Limit attendance at inspections to essential persons only and maintain social distancing requirements (6 ft. separation)
  • Encourage inspectors to wear gloves
  • Encourage inspectors to deliver inspection reports to buyers electronically
  • Make necessary arrangements for appraisers to inspect homes alone

 

This is not an all-inclusive list of real estate activities, nor should this replace the recommendations established by your company.

We are here to answer your questions. RSCK staff can be reached at (316) 263-3167 or you may email CEO, Sheila Rumsey, or Government Affairs Director, Dennis Clary, with inquiries about our guidance and the county order. Please visit the Sedgwick County website for detailed information about the Stay-at-Home order and the latest updates about the county’s response to the virus. Further, a bevy of information about coronavirus can be found on the National Association of REALTORS® website.

RSCK and SCKMLS are immensely grateful to everyone doing their part to flatten the curve, slow the spread of this virus, and save lives. Our industry is no stranger to adversity. As we have demonstrated in the past, our unity and care for each other will help us emerge from this challenge stronger than before.
