The overpriced are as cold as ice in Port Phillip right now. No bites, no action – as evidenced by the pass-ins of yesterday and the first two weeks of this market.
Overall the year has started better than anticipated but pass-in vendors will need to adjust if they want to attract buyers.
I went to [...]

A quiet day in Port Phillip in terms of auction numbers, however a majority of the properties we attended sold, with only one of the auctions we covered passing in (301 Richardson St, Middle Park, Oliver Bruce, BenMac, $1,600,000).
