Protect yourself and your clients by wearing reusable face masks when you show homes
Now that what we all hope is the worst of the coronavirus outbreak is behind us, we can now show homes more freely in most areas of the country than before. That is why having a supply reusable face masks is essential since the virus is still out there.
I know in my market, open houses were forbidden. Though showing homes was allowed, it hard to do due to not getting proper masks, gloves, disinfectant wipes, etc.

I know in my market, open houses were forbidden. Though showing homes was allowed, it hard to do due to not getting proper reusable face masks, gloves, disinfectant wipes, etc.
In my market, it’s mandatory to have forms signed to confirm compliance with CDC guidelines by both the real estate agent and their clients.
Those coronavirus safety forms have to be signed by both buyers and sellers and their representing agents. The forms have signatures before any home showing, no matter the situation or urgency.
Now that spring market is upon us and the coronavirus, though still an obstacle, is more manageable, many of us have begun showing homes.
In the past, I have been able to secure disposable masks like the ones seen below, but I’m considering an “upgrade” to keeping a supply of reusable masks.
- This is a general use face mask.
- This mask is not intended for medical use, and not proven to reduce the transmission of disease.
- Pack of 50 masks. These masks should be disposed of after each use.
- Keep the blue-side outside and the nose clip on the upper side.
- 3-ply, with a melt-blown polypropylene filtration layer.
One reason is that I can express a bit more of my personality in wearing one of these reusable masks. Another reason is that since they are reusable, it may be a bit less expensive as I find myself out and about in public more often. I am using a mask daily instead of just a couple of days a week.
One style of mask I am considering is one of the “Realtor” themed masks like those below.
I feel that when showing property, having one of these on could be even better security, as well as safety.
You can wear these in public places like the grocery store, on a walk in the city, or maybe a trip to the mall. These would be great for my real estate business’s “passive” marketing, much like when wearing your Realtor or real estate brand logo on your lapel when out and about.
The masks below are seven (7) of the best sellers on Amazon. Click on this link or any image below to see the many other available styles and options.
I plan to buy more than one since they will see the laundry more often, so having a backup or two would be necessary.
Reusable Face Masks with the Realtor Branding or Logo
Of course, there are many instances that you may not want to “advertise” that you are in real estate.
The more generic or plain masks below are some of Amazon’s best selling masks that fit those criteria.
They will allow you to protect yourself and others when in public. Yet, they will go with any outfit, and you can wear on any occasion.

Not as popular, but a mask style you may be considering if your health situation warrants it may be a reusable mask with a filter. Here a few of the best-sellers below, but there are many others here at this link.

Our spring real estate market this year is much different than last year or any other. Yes, we must take precautions like disinfecting surfaces and wearing masks, but that is our client’s safety.
Yes, it is a challenge, but if done correctly, it can become part of your real estate showing “routine” and can become just another task to do.
One of the easiest ways to get to that point is to start now by having ample supplies on hand of anything you might need to keep yourself and your clients safe from COVID-19.
Having proper safety items on hand makes it quick and easy to get back to helping people buy and sell houses.
Do you have other suggestions? Perhaps you have experience of wearing masks, any tips making it more comfortable you want to share? Maybe you are making masks yourself, let us know how you are doing that? Please post your comments in the space below, and I will look forward to reading them.
