Auction Snapshot: Saturday 29 April

May 1st 2017

What’s happening in the market…

The Domain Group highlighted that, although Melbourne is experiencing a constant incline in auction listings, many of these auctions are in the outer suburbs. Buyers may be influenced to purchase in the outer areas, as there is currently a lack of supply in inner areas, without a comparative slowing in demand.

May is now here, and the way that residential real estate can be marketed in Victoria has changed considerably. To read more about the changes to the Estate Agents Act 1980, click here.
