Waterloo Region will move to Step 3 of Ontario’s Roadmap to Reopen effective 12:01 a.m. on Friday, July 16 12, 2021. 

 

Property Showings and Open Houses

Open Houses will be permitted in Step 3 with capacity limited to permit physical distancing of 2 metres.

 

REALTORS® should continue to follow all existing public health guidelines, limit in-person business as much as possible, use virtual tools and conduct scheduled showings only.

 

KWAR continues to promote the use of virtual open houses, virtual showings, and digital documents first and to the greatest extent possible.

 

The Ontario Real Estate Association has provided guidance for Ontario REALTORS REALTORS® here:  https://www.oreacovid19info.com/orea-guidance-on-re-opening-in-step-three

Our Office

The KWAR office remains closed and all store purchases can be made online and picked up at a designated time.

 

Many Realtors are now using special pre-screening and consent forms (like this one developed by CREA) prior to potential buyers viewing a property for sale or rent.

Did you know you can attach these forms and other documents in Matrix and ShowingTime so that all Realtors booking an appointment will receive them automatically?

We have created this 3-minute tutorial to walk you through this simple process.
