Victoria has been hit harder by Covid-19 than any other state; in fact, Melbourne’s lockdown is one of the longest and strictest in the world.
With that, the property market has also been in total lockdown, until recently. People can now attend one-on-one, 15-minute house inspections and rental viewings. That means one person plus another from the same residence along with the agent can be inside the house at the same time. People can also travel further to check out properties they’re interested in. Plus, auctions are back on – now up to 10 people can attend.
Since the announcement of these changes, Victoria has seen an influx of properties hitting the market, with Domain reporting an increase of more than 240% in the first week of October¹.
But the welcome news doesn’t mean buying and selling property during a pandemic has been easy. If anything, it’s become even more stressful. It’s why we’ve worked hard to make the conveyancing process simpler. We’re here to help you buy and sell property with ease and confidence during these difficult and unique circumstances.
