In really great news and a victory for common-sense, property inspections are now permitted again in Melbourne. One on one inspections can now be booked and new listings can be listed and photographed. In another sensible variation to the rules, another member from the same household can inspect simultaneously, along with children under the age of 18.
This applies to both selling and rental properties. Strict hygiene rules as far as masks and not touching any surfaces still apply of course. So, expect a rapid rise in activity for an industry that has been completely shut down for the last couple of months. The pent-up demand on both sides of the equation will be strong, with approximately 16,000 homes normally having been sold in this time in a typical year.
If looking to get ahead of the rush to list, please read our guide to “Rainbow Listings”, or to see current properties For Sale or For Lease, please click either of the links. This will likely change quickly over coming days, with new properties already progressing through the marketing preparation process.
