Here are some thoughts from Henry Wong of Harcourts Beyond on Covid-19.
“Hi, I’m Henry Wong from Harcourts Beyond. Look, with this whole changing environment and the rules and regulations that are imposed on us by the government with COVID-19, real estate is an essential service at this point of recording, where people still have to rent a place, people still need to buy, people still need to sell. So all this is still going on. A few things have changed right now, no more open homes. However, we do have private inspections, it’s one group at a time. Also, there are restrictions as to the spacing as well, the social distancing. There are no more auctions. We do have online auctions so we can actually do our auctions online where the physical presence of buyers isn’t necessary.
You know, for us, I suggest we do our part to come to comply with the suggestions by the government and also the chief medical officer of Australia, to help slow down or to hopefully eliminate this virus as soon as possible, so we all can get along with our lives.
Now, I just want to say big thank you to everyone that’s doing their part, as well as to the healthcare workers that are doing their part as well to help beat this virus. And my heart really goes out to people whose jobs are lost, as well as to local businesses who are finding it really, really, really tough.
One thing I know for certain is that with the Aussie spirit, we can adapt, we can adapt to the changing environment. That’s all we can do. Don’t get bogged down about things that you can’t control. Focus on things that you can control. So if you have any need at all, just want to have a chat, feel free to just contact me via social, or just give me a call, or send me a message, and all the best and stay safe.”
