Stonnington Snapshot This weekend has been the first real test of the market this year, with a solid number of $1 million plus homes bought to auction in Stonnington. But it’s been more about auction numbers rather than quality of choice. We’ve been seeing mostly low level quality stock and lower priced stock, and the good [...]
