Realtors in Austin are being told they can show properties again across the metro under a new statewide coronavirus order.
After Central Texas' first shelter-in-place orders were announced March 24, the Austin Board of Realtors strongly discouraged its members from in-person showings in certain locations.
"It's our interpretation that showing activity may be allowed in Williamson County, but it's clearly not allowed in Travis County and the city of Austin," ABOR said in a March 25 update.
But now ABOR says things have changed after a March 31 executive order from Gov. Greg Abbott on the state's efforts to contain COVID-19, the disease caused by the novel coronavirus.
"Realtors can show property across the market but should exercise great caution in doing so," ABOR said in an April 1 update.
