Since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Australian real estate industry has been in the headlines for record property prices but we too have had to run our own unique course.
In March 2020, our workforce of Australian property managers were handed a government policy to implement: rental eviction moratoriums.
Property managers in every single jurisdiction did the heavy lifting in working with tenants and investors to single handedly deliver this policy on behalf of National Cabinet.
These efforts were met with little thanks and often a lot of criticism from the tenant’s lobby.
As an industry, we were asked to step up and we willingly united to play our role in fighting the virus.
More than a year on, its beyond comprehension that we’ve come full circle on many of these policies, but half of the nation is once more living under lockdown.
Agents and customers in both Victoria and the ACT are now unable even to list properties in advance of spring sales.
As REIA president and owner of seven real estate businesses, the consequences of these ongoing lockdowns need to be urgently addressed.
