    Kevin do you feel that agents are under quoting or that in the current bull market they are having trouble pricing property for sale? In Newcastle a property that had a guide of $850k, which was then raised to $930k, sold under the hammer for $1.61m.

      Hi David. A very good question. That seems like an extreme case and it is hard to imagine how an agent could get it so wrong so I understand why you would think it is ‘underquoting’. I am not sure if there are any extenuating circumstances but with such a huge variation, my recommendation to any buyer is that they have an independent valuation done before bidding. Kevin
