Huge response as lockdown eases

The arrival of the long weekend may have given a few Melbourne residents a well-earned extended break, (not that we could travel all that far).

For all those home buyers who had been forced to sit on their hands for the past two weeks, however, this weekend provided the opportunity to get out and look at some properties for sale, and they grabbed that opportunity with both hands!

Our team didn’t stop running all day Saturday, trying to satisfy the hundreds of requests we had received for private inspections of properties in all areas and price brackets.

The easing of lockdown restrictions also provided our team with the chance to catch up on a few tasks that the lockdown had delayed, like putting up the SOLD signs on properties that were sold during the lockdown.

One example of this was the beautiful double-storey four-bedroom home in Maddingley Road, Attwood which, as we mentioned in last week’s Update, achieved a terrific sale during the lockdown. Despite all the restrictions on physical inspections and face-to-face meetings, Ghizlaine Digby was able to negotiate an impressive pre-auction sale at $1.015 million. As you can see in the photo, she was able to drop in to see her vendors this week, (who are still coming to terms with the tremendous result) and take care of decorating their auction board.

If you are planning on getting out to see some of our listings this week, here’s a reminder on some of the rules that currently apply in metropolitan Melbourne:

  • Property inspections can be undertaken, but only by appointment and are limited to a maximum of ten people inside the property at any one time.
  • Whilst Inspection Times will be advertised for certain properties, similar to an Open House in the past, you MUST speak to the agent handling that property to book your attendance before arriving.
  • Due to attendance limits, you may be asked to remain in your car until others have left the property. You may also be asked to scan a QR code to register your attendance.
  • Public auctions are still permitted when conducted outdoors. There is a limit of 50 people attending the auction, and everyone attending will be asked to register by scanning a QR code, and to respect the personal spacing requirements whilst observing the auction.
  • Our offices are also now open to the public. If you are coming to one of our offices, please wear a mask and register your attendance by scanning the QR code on display.

As always, in all our interactions with you our staff members will observe the highest level of safety to protect your safety.

Don’t forget, if you need any help or advice in making your property dreams come true, why not give us a call this week at Barry Plant Gladstone Park on 9330 1088.
