Back in March 2020, Open Houses were not recommended and suspended in an effort to protect everyone from spreading this virus. While open houses were taking place over the summer months, they will no longer be allowed until further instruction from our public health experts. Virtual open house will continue to be part of the new normal and actual home visits can still occur. Real Estate has continued to evolve throughout this pandemic and if any of our listings are of interest to you, please reach out or have your realtor connect with us as there is a way to continue to do this safely while adhering to all guidelines set out by our government.
