COVID-19: BUYER GUIDELINES FOR PROPERTY SHOWINGS


While it is not 'business as usual', we are here to support our clients who have a critical housing need: those who have sold their home and not yet purchased, or those who must sell or buy to meet their personal financial obligation or provide shelter for their family.

NewGen Realty Experts is committed to the health and safety of its clients, REALTORS® and the communities that we serve. We continue to take action to help keep you safe as we face this unprecedented global crisis together. The safety measures we are taking are being guided by Public Health Authorities and the Government.

  • Before scheduling or attending a showing, please complete the NewGen Realty Experts showing Health Disclosure provided by your REALTOR® which captures information confirming that NO ONE attending the showing (Buyer, REALTOR® or Buying Clients, or any occupant of the property) has:
    • recently traveled anywhere outside of Canada or has been in contact with anyone who has traveled outside of Canada.
    • has any of the following symptoms in the last 14 days: Fever, Dry Cough, Shortness of Breath, or Difficulty Breathing. Refer to the Government of Canada Coronavirus site for an up-to-date list of symptoms.
    • knowingly come into contact with anyone experiencing the following symptoms in the last 14 days: Fever, Dry Cough, Shortness of Breath, or Difficulty Breathing.
    • come into contact with anyone with a presumptive or confirmed COVID-19 diagnosis in the last 14 days.


The criteria on the Showing Health Disclosure Declaration form is subject to change should the government and health authorities guidelines change.

  • Understand the importance of following current direction from government and health authorities and the risks that come with attending in-person showings.
  • Limit viewing only to those who are/will be specifically named on the offer:
    • Additional family members, friends or children should not be in attendance. There are no exceptions.

    • Practice social distancing measures when traveling to the showing by driving in separate vehicles.
