Real Estate Open Houses Resume

BRANTFORD – Virtual showcases and live streaming have become the new normal for real estate agents, home buyers, and sellers, replacing traditional open houses during the COVID-19 pandemic.

But for regions entering stage 3 of the economic reopening plan, the provincial government has lifted the hold on real estate professionals hosting open houses.

Paula Tysoski with the Platinum Living Realty Team at Sutton Team Realty says in Brantford and Brant, along with and 23 other regions, open houses are allowed to resume with new protocols and procedures.

Those planning on attending an open house are requested to sign-in upon arrival, consider physical distancing, and wear a face-covering. Realtors will also be sanitizing high touch areas in the home.

Tysoski says she will also continue to do virtual tours and live streaming as it continues to be a beneficial tool.
