#PH3 -409 Bloor Street East/Realtor.ca

With open houses still temporarily prohibited in COVID-19 hotspots — which includes Toronto, Peel, Ottawa, and York Region — in an effort to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus, online open houses are the next best thing.

It’s no secret that Toronto’s real estate market has seen a dramatic shift in how homes are purchased and sold this year due to COVID-19. And while the real estate industry is considered essential, the traditional ways of doing business — in-person showings, open houses, and one-on-ones with agents and potential buyers — are no longer feasible… at least until daily case numbers in local hotspots improve.

As a result, many brokerages have pivoted and are utilizing digital tools to put on online open houses and tours.
