COVID-19 Protocols & Precautions
Buying, selling, renting, or leasing property can be challenging and complicated, even in normal circumstances. COVID-19 has created new questions for consumers and can add significantly to the challenges of a real estate transaction. We are here to support you through these challenges.
Real Estate is a non-Health Essential Service; our Agents are taking precautions to ensure all parties involved feel safe. At HomeLife, we are taking guidance from the Real Estate Council of BC, Work Safe BC, and the British Columbia Ministry of Health. You can find answers to frequently asked questions regarding COVID-19 & Real Estate by clicking here.
Work Safe BC has provided guidance for REALTORS® and Real Estate Brokerages for us to operate safely. At our office, you will find plenty of hand sanitizer upon entry and throughout the office, protective barriers at our reception, sanitizing wipes/sprays and more. We request that if you are coming into our office, to wear a mask or face covering. You may not be able to tell, but we are smiling under our masks!
Whenever possible, our agents take advantage of the technology we have available including WEBForms and E-signatures for paperless transactions, virtual tours, walk-through videos for properties and video-calling to name a few.
As of November, 2020 Open Houses are not recommended by RECBC and the BC Public Health Officer. Private in-person showings operate by following the Work Safe guidelines. If you are interested in booking a showing, please contact your REALTOR® and be prepared to answer a few questions prior to your appointment. We recommend viewing the virtual tours and driving through the neighborhood of your prospective property prior to booking a showing. More questions on showings? Contact your favourite HomeLife REALTOR®.
While we miss having clients and agents in our office, safety is our priority. We will get through this together!
