Council calls in real estate agents to be transparent

Update: 1:36PM THERE is a very high demand for residential properties but the supply is low such that some unscrupulous real estate agents are taking advantage of the situation by inflating prices and pressuring local homebuyers.

The
statement by Consumer Council of Fiji CEO Premila Kumar today followed concerns
raised by consumers of pressure selling practices by some real estate agents
and lawyers.

“The
council is calling on real estate agents and lawyers engaged in real estate
business to be transparent and provide the necessary disclosures to clients in
