In response to concerns about COVID-19 and in the interest of public safety, the Vancouver Island Real Estate Board's Directors elected this morning to strongly advise REALTOR® members against holding open houses during the ongoing pandemic.
Many REALTOR®'s have voluntarily adopted protocols for Open Houses to help ensure visitors and homeowners are protected from exposure, such as implementing hand washing and social distancing requirements. However, as this situation continues to evolve, we are now advising that all REALTOR® Members completely discontinue holding open houses and instead rely on virtual tours and other online alternatives.
Members should discuss COVID-19 preparedness with clients and make decisions about whether to proceed with showings based on the latest public guidance. Bear in mind that there is an increased risk of more severe outcomes for Canadians who are 65 years of age and older, have compromised immune systems, or have underlying medical conditions.
All members are asked to act responsibly and do their part to keep our communities and the public safe.
However, personal home showings can still be requested subject to the approval of the Seller and with certain restrictions. Contact us for more information.
