5 Toronto Properties Holding Online Open Houses This Weekend
With open houses still temporarily prohibited in Ontario 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 past 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 host online open houses and tours.
If you’ve been thinking about upgrading your current living situation, whether that means you’re on the hunt for more space or perhaps just want to see what’s currently available on the market, join us for an online open house of five listings in Toronto you can tour from the comfort of your own home.
These listings include an upgraded, 2-storey penthouse in Mimico, a charming detached 2-storey townhome in Forest Hill, and a bright and well-maintained home in The Junction that’s perfect for first-time homebuyers.
For all of the chosen properties, there are multiple available live stream dates posted on the listing page that you can add directly to your calendar. Just click on the listing and you’ll see a ‘live’ button just above the price, click that and it will shoot you down to a YouTube link where you’ll find the stream.
Keep in mind that there are more online open houses taking place this weekend, you can find the full list here.
