“There can be no more than six people plus an agent at any one time and we have to obey the 4sq m proximity rule and the 1.5m social distancing requirement,” Ms West said. “But we’re pretty excited.”

There have still been plenty of inquiries but the relaxing of rules by Queensland Health, effective from May 1, provides more than a glimmer of hope.

“Open homes get us more people inspecting, and quicker sales and ultimately better prices for the owners,” Ms West said.
