Ontario real estate regulations to offer alternative to blind bidding

Ross Romano, Ontario minister of Government and Consumer Services, said on Tuesday the regulations would enable home sellers to disclose details of competing bids on their properties if they choose. He said the province wants to give sellers the option of what it calls an "open offer" process.
