COVID-19 Update: Permissible Real Estate Activities
While in-room auctions and traditional open homes are still not permitted in Queensland, some restrictions have been eased as of 1 May 2020. The following real estate activities are now permissible:
- Private appointments for inspection (as previously advised); and,
- Open inspections with a maximum of six (6) people including the real estate agent inside the home at any one time, with no more than one person per 4 square metres.
If advertising an open inspection to attract two or more group showings (with a maximum of six people including the real estate agent), a second real estate agent will be required outside of the property to manage social distancing and strict hygiene protocols which must still be observed.
