On Sunday night, the Prime Minister made it very clear that all Australians should immediately cease unnecessary travel and cease all unnecessary social interaction in order to limit the spread of the Coronavirus.
With this in mind, the Real Estate Institute of Australia is now calling on all real estate agents across Australia to make significant changes to the way they conduct their business particularly in relation to house inspections and the conduct of public auctions. Past practice with open homes and public auctions needs to cease.
We need to take the Covid-19 Virus seriously. The deliberate organising of a gathering of people by a real estate agent flies in the face of the directives of the Prime Minister. To continue to arrange unmodified public open homes and auctions is clearly irresponsible.
