Just a question.. Are real estate agents running under a different law in regards to advertised price? My understanding is when a price is advertised for a product, you must honor the price when the item is sold. Companies have been in trouble for not doing this. However I looked at a house, which had a 'For Sale' at $369500 price.. no 'plus' or price range etc.. however the property sold for $381,000.. Wouldn't that consist as false advertising? Since you had no way of purchasing the property at the advertised price? Secondly many times agents advertise a property as 'a fantastic investment opportunity' 'calling all investors' and I have even heard them say how the area is a growth area, prices double every 10 years, 'perfect investment' etc.. So basically the real estate agent is offering a investment, and is also giving financial advise to the public.. Now doesn't this mean that a PDS must be lodged with ASIC and offered with the investment, along with the agent needing to have a financial planner license?
