From the Office of Emergency Management in the Borough of Point Pleasant Beach
On March 16, 2020 the Office of Emergency Management in the Borough of Point Pleasant Beach declared a local state of emergency due to the COVID-19 pandemic outbreak nationwide. In order to continue to protect the residents of Point Pleasant Beach the following restrictions will go into effect immediately:
We regret taking these steps, but must in light of the need to enforce the Governor's Order for our residents to stay home and for visitors to refrain from coming to the Jersey Shore. We will be able to relax this restriction as soon as we know it is safe to do so. We will revisit this decision by May 1, 2020, however if the COVID-19 pandemic continues to pose a threat to the residents we will act accordingly to protect human life.
We have had members ask if MORMLS can pause Days on Market. This is FBS’s position on it and we at MORMLS agree.
“The problem, however, is that pausing DOM distorts the accuracy of the data in the system. Years from now when the pandemic is hopefully a distant memory, we should be able to look back at the data and see the effect the pandemic had on days on market. If we see some markets where there’s no effect (because DOM was paused) and other markets where it wasn’t, that’s going to create a misleading picture. Another reason not to pause DOM is that no competitive advantage or disadvantage is created for any agent, the pandemic is impacting everyone the same. Lastly, the way DOM works in Flexmls, pausing DOM is way more complicated than one might think, so not messing with it really helps us out, too, and creates less of a chance for problems.”
