Conklin supports the expansion of real estate business activities

HARRISBURG, April 28 – In response to updated guidance announced by the Pennsylvania Department of State, state Rep. Scott Conklin applauded the regional expansion of allowable business activities for real estate professionals, including appraisers, notaries, home inspectors and title companies.

The updated guidance would allow for in-person activities, including real estate showings, appraisals and inspections, in areas of the state deemed to be in the “Yellow Phase” of reopening, provided that all participants follow guidance from the Pennsylvania Department of Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

“These professionals can and should be allowed to conduct business, and I am confident they can safely do so, following the guidance from state and federal officials,” Conklin said. “Our entire commonwealth has been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, and that includes the real estate sector. Pennsylvanians who have been unable to sell or buy a home will now be able to do so, and these professionals can resume their work and help get our economy back on track.”
