COVID Killed My Open House! | KT Confidential E88

On today’s podcast, episode #88, we discuss the changes that have evolved over the last few months pertaining to open houses in the local real estate market.

With open houses becoming illegal in province of Ontario since COVID, many agents have had to quickly adopt new ways to inform and educate the public and potential buyers on the availability of their listings. A couple practices that are being adopted by the industry are virtual open houses, 3D tours of the properties, and overall extensive coverage online via marketing materials such as photos, videos, and social posts.

We feel there will always be the debate over the purpose of traditional open houses and how effective they really are. We believe that in this industry, exposure is extremely important when it comes to getting your home seen by any potential buyer. So despite the changes that have taken place in the past months, we believe that the value of traditional open houses is too much to pass up. With things slowly getting back to “normal” it will only be a matter of time before we see things return to that way they were, with the addition of all of these new methods of online marketing remaining just as important.

Traditional open houses have stopped, online marketing has taken over, and despite the change homes are still selling like hot cakes! All of that and more on today’s episode of KT Confidential – Real Estate Podcast.

The founders, Ariel Kormendy and Adrian Trott, started The Kormendy Trott Team, a real estate team based out of Halton region in Ontario, after both being in need of a change from their successful careers in the automotive industry and both experiencing the lack of service being provided in the real estate industry. They kicked off their careers in 2011 and quickly became a top-performing team in the country, ranking 17th of approximately 200 for Century 21 in 2017; as a team of just the two of them compared to much larger teams. They decided that they needed to take their team from being real estate agents in Milton to the rest of the GTA and beyond by expanding and servicing more areas. The team has since grown to have an administrative arm, media department and successful sales team operating a smooth running and successful business.
