July was a record-breaking month for real estate sales across the GTA. Not even a nearly 17 per cent price spike in Toronto prices seemed to stop homebuyers from making offers.


Sue Heddle Homes certainly noticed the uptick in market activity and ended the month of July as the top realtor in the Century 21 Miller Real Estate Ltd. brokerage. Sales activity was very strong for the first full month of summer! With buyers continuing to compete for homes as they are being sold faster than new listings are added, we don’t see a slowdown happening any time soon.

Most of Ontario has now entered Stage 3 of the COVID-19 re-opening plan, with the final few regions likely following shortly. This next phase brings several changes, one of which is the ability to host gatherings of up to 50 people. As larger groups are now allowed, Oakville realtors prepare to host Open Houses once again.


It’s important to note that although Open Houses are now possible, they will still look different from Open House events we knew before the global pandemic. Signs displaying health precautions, hand sanitizer, and masks will be a part of any Open House for the foreseeable future and realtors will be required to manage capacity and enforce social distancing.


Safely Buy Or Sell A Home During COVID-19

Oakville real estate agents deal with a wide variety of housing needs. From clients looking for a home to renovate, to those wanting a central location that supports an easy commute, there are plenty of different reasons that drive someone to want to buy or sell a home.


However, with people being at home more than ever before, what home owners want in a home is changing. COVID-19 means that people are working from home, working out at home, teaching their children at home, cooking and baking more, and relying on their outdoor space to provide a change of scenery.

Oakville realtor Sue Heddle has been using high quality 3D virtual tours as part of our listings for the last six years.


Not only does this increase the marketability of any listing, it also supports buying and selling properties for out of town clients, and makes it much easier for prospective buyers to really get a feel for any property they’re interested in, from the comfort of their own home.


At Sue Heddle Homes, we’ve always considered 3D Virtual tours a top level service that was important to provide to our clients, but in the current climate, we’d argue it’s now critical. COVID-19 has changed the way real estate transactions are being conducted and your property’s online presence is now more significant than ever before.


Don’t Be Fooled - Not All Virtual Tours Are Equal
