A Wellington home has sold during lockdown with no viewings. 

City Living Real Estate agent Chris Barnes said it’s one of a handful of properties to sell during the country’s strictly limited alert level 4 coronavirus lockdown

“This one was a little bit different because we already had all the staging and photography done in advance before the Government announcement,” Barnes said.

“At the time, we really didn’t know what we were in for … but we could certainly see things brewing.” 

Barnes said usually they’d encourage viewings – but at alert level 4 real estate agents cannot legally access properties. 

The company realised the lockdown was coming and worked to get the listing sale-ready, Barnes said.
