REALTORS® are considered essential service providers during the COVID-19 pandemic by the Alberta provincial government. However, this does not mean that real estate continues as normal. For those consumers who move ahead with buying or selling properties, there are specific steps REALTORS® and consumers should take to protect their health and the health of the greater community.
While the Covid-19 virus causes concern for many, some people see it as an opportunity to buy property while for other people it may be a necessity as they need a place to live and must buy at this time. Many people also want to sell for financial or practical reasons, particularily given the unemployment rate and the current economic conditions cause by Covid-19.
As we navigate these uncharted times we will continue to provide real estate services and expertise as best we can. How we do so may change day by day as the situation is rapidly changing and we will continue to honour the direction provided by our government and the medical community. We have taken many steps and are exercising extreme caution while continuing to provide real estate services to those who require it.
