COVID 19 FAQ

HOW HAS COVID AFFECTED THE BUYING/SELLING PROCESS?

Currently there are no restrictions on how many viewers per showing, however masks are required while viewing a property.  It is important that you wear a mask throughout the entire showing, or you could be at risk of a large fine.  I update this section regularly as the rules of Alberta are ever changing.

IS IT SAFE TO LET BUYERS INTO OUR HOME?

If you are vaccinated, yes it is very safe. It is encouraged to bring sanitizer to apply before and after a viewing, and be respectful inside peoples homes. Virtual tours are available if the seller chooses to opt out of showings.

ARE PEOPLE BUYING DURING A PANDEMIC?

Yes!  In the Spring of 2020 no one knew what the future of Calgary real estate would be.  The pandemic has prompted a lot of people to reevaluate their living situation, and people are realizing that their space no longer works for them.  Combine that with record low interest rates and a reduction of supply, the number of transactions in 2020 surpassed all expectations.  Lots of sellers held off listing their home last year, which in turn has created an inventory shortage. Buyers need to act quickly if they are serious about a property.
