Pandemic Safety Guidelines for Sellers

October 21, 2020

We’ve all adjusted to the pandemic in our everyday lives, but for those of you who don’t sell a home everyday, here’s a list of things you can do as a seller of a home to protect yourself, your family and our community against the spread of the virus:
  • Do not proceed with showings if you or anyone in your household has recently travelled outside of Canada or have been in contact with someone who has, if you have experienced any symptoms of illness or come into contact with someone who has, or if you have come into contact with anyone with a presumptive or confirmed Covid-19 diagnosis.
  • Your Realtor can request that all buyer’s agents provide confirmation of the above for everyone attending a showing.
  • Your Realtor can help limit the time that prospective purchasers spend inside your home by providing photos, a virtual tour and a floorplan, etc. on the listing.
  • Request that buyers limit their party to only those who will be parties to the offer contract; specifically, avoiding bringing additional family members, friends and children if possible.
  • Disinfect your home as often as possible before and after showings.
  • Keep lights on to minimize the need for viewers to touch light switches.
  • Avoid being home for any showings to avoid physical contact with the buyers and their agents. If you need to be home, wear a mask and practice physical distancing (2 metres apart).
