The Block holding virtual open for inspections

As this season of The Block steers towards completion, one obvious question still lingers: how on earth will they hold their massive Open For Inspections, which usually see thousands of sticky beaks and serious buyers alike walk through the properties they have watched develop over the season?

Considering this year’s properties are in Melbourne’s bayside suburb Brighton, the obvious answer is that The Block will hold its first ever virtual open for inspection on Monday, November 16.

The whole thing will be streaming over at 9Now from 7.30pm (odd time for an open house; good time for a televised event) and interested parties can send in questions ahead of the virtual opens.

“Unfortunately, this year we don’t have the open for inspections happening live, and that was my favourite time of the year,” Scott Cam told Today.

“But, we are doing a virtual open for inspection … and Shelley and I are going to take you through every room with the contestants and answer all of those questions that you have.”

“It will be a virtual thing and there will be a dress up too,” Scott continued.

“If you get dressed up your photo is going to go on the wall, and you could win prizes.”

Interestingly, the most money a house has ever sold for on the show is $3,067,000, when Elyse Knowles and Josh Barker made a $447,000 profit on a Melbourne weatherboard in 2017.

The buyer was comedian Dave Hughes, who obviously liked what he saw on the screen.
