What’s happening in the market…

From 1 May, the way that residential real estate can be marketed will change considerably in Victoria. The changes to the Estate Agent Act 1980 put in place several new requirements that real estate agents must adhere to when engaged to sell residential property in Victoria. We certainly welcome these changes as the desired outcome is to ensure that all agents across the state are complying with current legislation, to give potential home buyers confidence and help maintain the integrity of the industry.
