Business As Usual

By Kris Matthews

Our ongoing investment in flexible working options means the Ray White Toowong team is still 100% available and working hard. We continue to work with our buyers, sellers, and future clients whilst remaining contact conscious – remote working, emails, phone calls and FaceTime open homes, as well as one-on-one private inspections, valuations and meetings as required.

Our market so far in 2020 has produced some outstanding results with the number of buyers attending open homes up, enquiry levels via online portals up and also the number of offers being submitted on listed properties also up. Our outlook for the immediate future is quite positive. Effective tomorrow, 20 March, the official cash rate will be slashed to a new record low of 0.25%, which intern will drive new buyer groups into the market. Unfortunately, we don’t have a crystal ball to tell us what the market will do in 6-8 months time, however what we do know is that the first few months of 2020 has created solid momentum for the Brisbane real estate market and now is the perfect time for sellers to maximise their returns.

We are committed to providing the same level of excellent service to all our clients and friends, so please get in touch if you need any assistance.

Ray White Toowong remains committed to the preservation of the health and wellbeing of our team and customers. In light of the World Health Organization’s categorisation of COVID-19 as a pandemic It’s important that we take measures to mitigate the spread of the virus to ensure the safety of our communities, particularly the elderly and immunocompromised.

The following summarises the steps we are taking in response to the challenge of COVID-19, and doing all we can to provide a clean and safe environment for our team and clients:

  • We will ask clients on entering our business and open homes if they have been overseas in the last two weeks. Clients who have travelled to any high-risk areas will be asked not to attend our business or open homes for 14 days. Before attending tenancies for routine inspections, we will make inquiries.
  • Our staff will wash hands and sanitise A-frames, flags and digital devices between open homes.
  • Hand sanitiser (where we can access) will be available throughout our business and open homes and all bathrooms will be stocked with disinfectant hand wash/soap.
  • Signs will be put up in open homes discouraging physical contact and suggesting norms of conduct.
  • In our office, all door handles, phones, reception desks, and common areas will be wiped with sanitisers regularly throughout the day.
  • We work on the run much of the time so are used to using technology to stay in touch – we will prioritise these types of communication given the COVID-19 circumstances.

We look forward to continuing to provide our customers with great service and excellent outcomes in the weeks and months ahead.
