‘There Is Not One-Size-Fits-All’: Gov. Tom Wolf Says Southwestern Pa.’s Lower Prevalence Of Coronavirus Cases Will Be Factored Into Regional Reopening – CBS Pittsburgh

HARRISBURG (KDKA) — The governor has promised to reopen the state region by region.

Since Allegheny County’s numbers continue to fall, there’s increasing pressure for him to lift restrictions on businesses like home sales.

The coronavirus shutdown has slowed real estate and home sales to a crawl. Agents aren’t permitted to show houses in person and must rely on videos to convince buyers.

“How can we people in real estate, how can buyers start to look at properties again? And there are just countless, countless folks who are in limbo right now,” said Hoddy Hanna of Howard Hanna Real Estate.

He has 2,000 employees and 7,000 independent contractors says by observing social distancing, CDC guidelines and requiring buyers and sellers to wear masks, sales could be conducted safely.
