David MorrellWith all the talk of the market overheating – it’s incredibly property specific.  We continue to see many examples of reserves not being met and cooling of sentiment  in certain sections of the marketplace.

Whilst the agents, media and vendors are on green lights, smart buyers have the caution light blinking.  Smart buyers realise Christmas is approaching and the pressure is on the vendor to conclude a sale.

Don’t get caught up in the hype.

Following my report about the Monstrous Blackburn underquoting I spoke with Jon Faine on 774 ABC Melbourne, listen to the full interview.

I have now received formal replies from Consumer Affairs Victoria, the Minister for Consumer Affairs and the Real Estate Institute of Victoria regarding the complaint.  I do not envy Consumer Affairs enforcing the unenforceable.

In the interest of balance, here are three examples of highly accurate agents.
