Keep up the COVID-safe activity: REIA

REIA president Adrian Kelly

Australia’s leading real estate body has called for continued vigilance from the industry to maintain its COVID-19 transmission-free status.

“We are a fortunate and proud industry in which there has not been a single recorded transmission of the virus due to real estate activity,” Real Estate Institute of Australia (REIA) CEO Adrian Kelly stated.

“Let’s keep it that way.”

While congratulating agents who have remained diligent throughout the restrictions by heeding safe workplace practices, Mr Kelly reminded agents to “keep up with the social distancing, management of open homes, use of hand sanitiser, no shaking hands, etc”.

“Compared to events in other countries at this time, we are certainly fortunate to be a part of the Australian real estate industry,” he said.

The president is also encouraging agents to make sure their COVID-safe workplace plans are up to date and being reinforced, especially given a number of state borders are set to open over the coming weeks.

Safe workplace practice materials are available from each state’s real estate institutes at this time.  

Mr Kelly said that, in many cases, the lifting of travel bans “will mean more freedom of movement around the country, particularly in regional locations which are already experiencing higher buyer interest and demand for those wishing for a change of lifestyle”.

Looking ahead, he expects these areas to see a sizeable influx of potential purchasers, while the real estate industry’s “continued uptake of technology is now the new normal”.
