I would like to sell my property. Can I work with a real estate broker in this current situation? Yes, absolutely. As of May 11, the provincial government has lifted the suspension applicable to real estate brokers, allowing the full resumption of residential and commercial real estate brokerage activities.
Real estate brokers respect all Quebec government directives and hygiene and distancing measures decreed by Public Health to minimize the spread of COVID-19. They also have the technology tools to ensure proper follow-ups and to support you throughout the process of selling your property. Open houses and in-person property visits are once again allowed for marketing a property. Note that there other remote marketing options are possible, such as holding virtual visits and virtual open houses.
During this period of resumption of real estate brokerage activities, your real estate broker will be able to inform you and discuss the various options while safely continuing to respect the social distancing and hygiene measures in effect.
