Keeping our sellers, buyers and team safe during the Covid traffic light system is extremely important to us. We are following real estate industry guidelines and as professionals operating within the protection framework like all other industries, we have a legal and moral obligation to implement the rules.
Under the current Traffic Light System the limitations around appraisals and open homes is less. Here’s a few key things you need to know.
Appraisals - now is a great time to get your property valued or listed
Vaccine passes are no longer required. If you have underlying health concerns or are not comfortable with having a fully vaccinated salesperson come into your home our sales team will work with you to do a comprehensive online review of your property. We have delivered over thousands digital appraisals over the lockdown period - rest assured we can provide a service to suit your needs. When you choose to list, we have a completely contactless admin process to ensure you stay safe.
As restrictions are easing here is what is now required under the Government guidelines:
Buying a property
If you are eager to buy a property under the Traffic Light System then this will not stop you from carrying out purchaser due diligence or pre-settlement inspections. The same requirements apply to those listed above. Please liaise with our sales team to learn more.
If you buy a home, congratulations! The good news is that settlement and moving can all occur under the Traffic Light System - this includes those moving between regions if it’s a permanent relocation of home or business.
We are able to hold in-room auctions at the Sapphire Room, Ponsonby, and our Takapuna auction room from Wednesday 4th May. Auctions are still running until this - they are just online. My Vaccine Pass will no longer be needed to attend but mask-wearing is required. If you are not able to be in the room due to health concerns you are able to view and bid at auction via our online platform or over the phone with the assistance of one of our salespeople.
