Open House Update

COVID-19 Staged Relaunch of Open Houses

The Alberta Real Estate Association is easing restrictions on members hosting open houses in a staged approach.

Stage 1: Limited Open Houses (now)

  • Open houses are permitted in vacant properties.
  • Open houses viewings should be limited to one or two members within the same family group in the property at a time.

Understanding that Alberta will continue to experience public health emergency restrictions for months to come, going forward, the open house policy will be linked to stages 1, 2 and 3 of the government relaunch strategy and restrictions will lift – or be reapplied – based on which stage Alberta’s public health officer declares Alberta to be under.

Stage 2: Conditional Open Houses (June 12)

  • Poster – Stage 2 COVID-19 Open House Protocol Notice
  • Open houses are permitted in all properties.
  • Open house viewings should be limited to one family group in the property at a time.

Stage 3: Open Houses Resume (TBD)

  • Poster – Stage 3 COVID-19 Open House Protocol Notice
  • Open houses are permitted in all properties.
  • Open house viewings should be limited to fewer than 15 people in the property at a time.
