The Real Estate Institute of Australia is urging real estate agencies to continue being vigilant as COVID-19-related lockdowns continue.
REIA President Adrian Kelly said that from the outset of the pandemic, real estate agents and agencies have been diligent about taking precautions and following community health rules. Kelly said that to date, there had been no cases of community transmission due to real estate agencies.
He also urged agents to contact their state or territory Real Estate Institute should they have any questions about current public health orders in their areas.
“COVID-19 has been a rollercoaster time for property agents, investors and tenants, so we are encouraging all to look after yourselves and each other and consult with your institute should you need anything at all,” Kelly said. “While the real estate industry has benefitted from strong property growth during the pandemic, it has not been without its challenges, and we continue to provide support and guidance to help real estate agents and agencies protect their clients and community.”
