After a six-week limited shutdown due to COVID-19, the real estate industry will be back hosting open for inspections from this weekend, with agents and vendors able to hold traditional property inspections and auctions.
According to the NSW Treasurer Dominic Perrottet, the relaxing of these restrictions was a sign of the ongoing success in limiting the spread of COVID-19.
“Choosing a home is one of the biggest decisions anybody makes, and easing the restrictions to ensure people can more easily inspect, buy or rent a property is an important step for NSW,” Mr Perrottet said.
“The real estate industry has been adaptable in transitioning to online auctions, property inspections by appointment or online, and now as we make the move back to a more normal mode of operation we must ensure safety measures such as social distancing remain a key part of the process.”
At Belle Property, we have a range of strategies in place to protect the health of the public and our staff. We are following the recommended social distancing and safety guidelines, such as use of hand sanitiser, ‘hands free’ open homes with all doors pre-opened for our clients and limited contact with surfaces, as well as limiting the number of people in the property at each time. We want to ensure that everyone can continue to view and transact property safely during this time.
