Re: Opening Open Houses | KT Confidential EP 145KT Confidential EP 146

On this podcast, episode 146, Adrian and Ariel talk about how Open houses are reopening under the province of Ontario. They discuss different parts of the OREA Guidance on Re-Opening in Step Three.

After being halted last summer owing to COVID-19 concerns, open houses have been absent from the real estate sector for more than a year. However, under the new Step 3 indoor gathering limits, which take effect at 12:01 a.m. on Friday, July 16, you can have up to 25 people inside.

With the new Step 3 criteria in place, aspiring homebuyers will be able to resume in-person home viewings after relying heavily on virtual ones for a long period. However, because the area is still recovering from this wave of the pandemic, purchasers may be hesitant to congregate in person.

Some buyers will be hesitant to visit open houses at first since these events tend to draw a lot of “window shoppers” and curious neighbours. Serious buyers like to see properties on their own time so they can get a real sense of the place without feeling rushed or crowded.

All of that and more on 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.
