Open Houses Prohibited

As of Saturday, April 4, 2020 – Open Houses are no longer allowed in Toronto due to the impact of Covid-19.  The Ontario Government has deemed the trading of real estate as an essential service, but it’s far from “business as normal”.

To ensure we’re all assisting in the practice of social distancing, in-person Open Houses are currently prohibited.  

Virtual Open Houses Encouraged

Realtors are encouraged to turn to online methods for showcasing a sellers property. Video tours, floorplans, high def photos and 3D walkthroughs are all viable ways to market the home while ensuring rules are being followed. Below is an example of a condo we prepared for online viewing.
