The ban on Public Open Houses continues to be lifted. Depending on seller instructions and REALTORs® recommendations we are seeing a combination of open houses booked by appointment and some that are 'old school'.
For now I suspect 'Opens By Appointment' will continue to be more popular, even though it is more difficult to ensure all buyers are able to view the homes they want to view.
For many new listings, particularly those in high demand, REALTORs® are typically open Saturdays and Sundays over the weekends. Properties are available to view in slots of 15 mins. Appointments must be booked in advance, or if you do not have an appointment you can wait and to see something opens up. Space can be limited for high demand homes with offer presentation dates.
Before booking a showing, buyers are encouraged to be working with a REALTOR®, to be pre-approved for a mortgage and to have reviewed all marketing material (thoroughly) prior to their showing. Masks are still required but not provided.
Whether you are buying or selling, I’m happy to help you navigate the waters through these interesting times. Feel free to get in touch.
