Surviving Stonnington Heritage

Surviving Stonnington Heritage

Stonnington’s own residents are being heavily impacted by Stonnington’s “one-off, one-out (random)” Heritage Strategy. It’s the “one-off, one-out” that is the key.

However James Bidderman, that is bidders per auction, was only 2.1. What does this mean? Well it may just be a statistical anomaly – we had a lot of bought befores and we record [...]
