REIWA welcomes the McGowan Government’s announcement
to allow the number of people who can attend a home open to be increased
from two people (including the agent) to a maximum of 10
REIWA President Damian Collins said with sales
transactions sitting at a record low of less than 300 per week in Perth in
recent weeks, this is positive news for the property market.
“There are many people who are still required to buy,
sell or rent a property during the COVID-19 pandemic and this decision will
help remove some of the limitations to viewing a property and will be a
positive step in helping to increase transactions,” Mr Collins
In addition, current social distancing and hygiene
rules will still apply with real estate agents required to also maintain a
register of people who attend each home open.
“While Western Australia seems to be past the worst of
the outbreak, we still take the current restrictions seriously and will be
working closely with our members and the government to ensure that we do our
part in helping to reduce the spread,” Mr Collins said.
“The cautious relaxation in restrictions coupled with
the announcement to provide rental assistance for those in financial stress, is
most welcomed by REIWA and we hope this is the beginning of things starting to
look up – not just for real estate but for the wider WA economy.”
REIWA looks forward to working with the State
Government on other initiatives over the coming months in relation to COVID-19
support, including the Commercial Code of Conduct.
