The COVID-19 pandemic has made the process of showing a home more challenging in 2020 than in recent years. Although open houses have not been a viable option over the last several weeks, the majority of buyers want to step inside a home before they can even think about placing an offer. With this, here are a few safe practices when showing a home during COVID-19.


  1. Open all cabinets and doors to prevent buyers from touching surfaces.
  2. Use disinfectant to wipe down handles, doorknobs, countertops, and other surfaces that buyers came into contact with once they leave the property.
  3. Wear face coverings or protective masks during showings.
  4. Have extra hand sanitizer, hand wipes, and face masks for buyers.
  5. Turn on all lights to prevent buyers from touching surfaces. 
  6. Ask buyers to remove their shoes when entering the home. 
  7. Offer booties at the door to avoid buyers from contaminating the home with their shoes.
  8. Limit the number of attendees at one time (in respect to social distancing guidelines).
  9. Space out home showings to prevent any overlap.
  10. Consider offering virtual showings/video tours as an alternative.
