Covid-19 Important Tips
Real estate is listed as “essential service” by the Government. Buyers and sellers have their reasons to buy and sell properties and GTA AREA Home is here to support you in every step of the way during this difficult times! If you have your house on the market, or looking for a home, be safe! Below we included some useful tips for sellers and buyers guided by public health authorities and the government.
Limit the number of people and duration of visit for in-person showings
Before the showings turn on the lights and open interior doors
Disinfect all exterior door handles, interior door handles, and lockbox with an alcohol-based sanitizer containing at least 60% alcohol
Leave the house when there is a showing (stay in your car parked far from your house, drive around the neighborhood, or go for a walk)
After showing thoroughly disinfect all handles, lockbox, countertops with an alcohol-based sanitizer containing at least 60% alcohol
Wash your hands with soap and warm water for minimum 20 seconds after every showing
Review homes online using video, virtual walkthrough tours and narrow down your search to a few properties that meet your criteria. Ask your agent to acquire additional information on the homes for you to short list one or two homes for in person visit
Visit the property alone or with one family member only
Do not use washroom facilities during your showing
Wear gloves and mask and do not touch surfaces
Sanitize your hands after the showing
Wash your hands with soap and warm water for minimum 20 seconds after your showing
Limit in-person meetings for signing offers, mortgage documents, real estate deals with lawyers – it all could be done electronically!
