Stay at home order

dated 3.24.20

To our clients at Kermath Realty. We believe this will be short live. Storms come and go. This is a severe storm... I would use this short period wisely to get my poperty in the best possible condition. When the order is lifted, you should be ready to sell. Place sanitizers about. Post notes telling possible buyers that will come in a few weeks what you've done to sanitize your home. Instill confidence in buyers. Before we know it the storm will pass.  I believe there is pent up demand / spring market / low rates for real estate deals to take their natural course of buying and selling.

When given lemons we can either think the glass is half empty and look for excuses or we CAN MAKE LEMONADE :).

Just a few of my thoughts as we weather this storm.

Stay safe, stay positive. As my mother used to say, "This too shall pass".

Your caring flat fee mls broker.

Stay home. Stay safe. Save lives.

Stay Home. Stay Safe. Save Lives. Link to combat the spread of COVID-19 in Michigan, Governor Whitmer signed the “Stay Home, Stay Safe” executive order. For at least the next three weeks, all Michigan businesses and operations must temporarily suspend in-person operations that are not necessary to sustain or protect life, and all Michiganders must stay in their homes unless they’re a part of that critical infrastructure workforce, engaged in an outdoor activity, or performing tasks necessary to the health and safety of themselves or their family, like going to the hospital or grocery store.


  • Go to the grocery store or pick up take-out food.
  • Go to the pharmacy to pick up a needed prescription.
  • Engage in outdoor activities like walking, hiking, running, biking.
  • Go to the hospital or secure any care necessary to address a medical emergency or to preserve your health or the health of a loved one.
  • Fill your car with gas.
  • Return to Michigan to a home or place of residence from outside the State.
  • Leave the State for a home or residence elsewhere.
  • Walk your pets and take them to the veterinarian for needed medical care.


  • Leave the home to work unless your employer designates you as a critical infrastructure worker.
  • Participate in any public gatherings.
  • Visit someone in the hospital, nursing home, or other residential care facilities (with limited exceptions).
  • Go to the mall or to restaurants.
