Australian College of Professionals Rosy Sullivan Underquoting
eac-insight-2017-real-issues-real-experts-real-answers-industry-expert-australian-college-of-professionals eac-insight-2017-real-issues-real-experts-real-answers-industry-expert-rosy-sullivan We have now been living with the Underquoting Reforms for over a year. Whilst almost every professional in the industry believes that the underlying philosophies are warranted and reasonable, there has been much confusion within the industry as how to best implement the actual requirements of the reforms. This ranges from the price ranges, preparation of comparable sales reports, changing your opinion of price, offering the property to market, keeping a record of people with whom you have spoken about price, and the list goes on. This session aims to simplify the logistical requirements of the Underquoting Reforms, whilst still providing a good service to your vendors and being transparent with your purchasers. It is tightrope that you need to balance on every day of the week. We will provide a checklist for your file that will assist salespeople to avoid “the land of temptation”.

Imagine having deep level insights into the total number of owners versus renter, incomes, or even personas specific to a group of 200 homes? Or having the ability to track what property addresses have been searched on Google? What about being able to target individual homes via mobile device advertising? Something of the future? Think again – it’s here.
