Ray White Group’s reaction to latest Federal Government statement

By Dan Sowden

It appears the scope of new business operating practices we proposed earlier today to support the flattening of the COVID-19 infection curve has been endorsed as appropriate, according to tonight’s announcement from the Prime Minister Scott Morrison.

The Prime Minister said on-site and in room auctions, along with open for inspections, are banned as of midnight Wednesday March 25, 2020.

While these restrictions will no doubt provide us with some challenges, we view them as necessary to face the current crisis and welcome the opportunity to continue to support the many Australians who rely on us to support them in renting, buying, selling and managing their homes. We are well prepared to do this.

No other restrictions were announced for either property management or sales businesses, subject to other restrictions on physical distancing and hygiene.

The key message to take away is that all real estate onsite and in room auctions and open house inspections will be cancelled as of Wednesday night, but our members will still be able to host virtual property tours, private inspections and on-line/digital auctions, as we have been encouraging.

We can take heart from the statement that “all workers in the economy are essential” and we will carefully adhere to the latest restrictions.
