Safer at Home Guidelines

The real estate industry in Steamboat Springs is beginning to take steps towards resuming a more normal state of business. As of Monday, April 27th, Colorado is now under a “Safer at Home” order, which has loosened restrictions on the activities that are allowed. These changes, guidelines, and precautions being taken by Steamboat Sotheby’s International Realty and all agents are outlined below.


They ARE allowed with a maximum of three people, including the agent. Social distancing is still required.

There is NO carpooling with buyers to showings. The agent must meet the buyer at a property.

Face coverings ARE required at all in-person showings.

Agents will provide sanitization materials – disinfectants, wipes, and will properly wipe down any surfaces touched before leaving the property.

Professionals such as photographers, appraisers and inspectors ARE allowed to conduct business for active and pending listings.

Open houses are NOT allowed at this time.


Many businesses in Steamboat Springs are also trying to resume normal operations while still maintaining social distancing and safety guidelines. Several restaurants and retailers are offering curbside service, online ordering and purchasing, or other contact-free methods of conducting business. Up to date information can be found on the Steamboat Springs Chamber website.

Property management companies are still maintaining vacant properties through May 31st, and until June 1st, the Routt County Board of Health Public Health Order prohibits visitors in hotels, motels, and short-term rentals, including Airbnb and VRBO. Property management companies are taking reservations beginning June 1st.
