Restrictions are Easing – What does that mean for Real Estate?

*Update: The State Government announced on Sunday, that Private inspections for residential & commercial rentals and sales are permitted for Metro Melbourne, as well as Auctions.

This move comes earlier than expected, but is an excellent breath of life back into the Melbourne property market!

Private Inspections Guidelines:
