A major real estate brokerage is taking precautions in the DC region in the week leading up to the Inauguration. 

Compass has recommended that its DC-area agents consider not holding open houses until after Inauguration. Some agents are also considering removing their name riders from their listings to avoid being targeted by white supremacists and anti-Semites.

Thousands of armed disruptors are expected to follow up last week's insurrection with additional advances on the Capitol building and other locations downtown, as well as government buildings in all of the state capitals, as soon as this weekend.

Yesterday, Airbnb announced that it will cancel all reservations in the DC region during the week of the inauguration as a response to officials asking people not to travel to the city.
