The Return of Auctions and Open for Inspections
The news that restrictions on Victorian real estate auctions and open for inspections have been eased is a cause for optimism and should inspire confidence among buyers and vendors.
Up to 10 people are now permitted to attend auctions in person in Victoria, while at open for inspections as many as 10 people are allowed inside a property at the same time.
At Jellis Craig, clearance rates have remained strong and we have continued to achieve excellent results throughout the lockdown period, which is testament to the work of our agents and their ability to adapt during what has been a very challenging time for the industry.
While the lifting of some restrictions is welcome news, Jellis Craig will continue to set a high industry standard by maintaining a number of key measures to ensure the health and safety of our clients, staff and the wider community.
Our open for inspections require attendees to register beforehand, to allow us to manage numbers, and we continue to encourage interested buyers to request private appointments where possible.
Similarly, attendance at Jellis Craig auctions is by pre-registration only, so that crowds can be kept to a minimum.
At all Jellis Craig open for inspection and auction events the highest of hygiene standards apply, including the continuation of social distancing guidelines.
We look forward to continuing to service the needs of our customers and achieving many more outstanding results throughout this period as we welcome buyers back to our auctions.
