To Capture Off-Market Sales, Australian Buyers Turn to Agents

21-May-2018

Armed with a specific wish list and deep pockets, an increasing number of Australian house hunters are seeking out buyers’ agents to help find their dream homes.

The prevalence of off-market sales in the Australian residential market is underpinned by declining buyer interest and sellers seeking a low-profile sale without publicity, at the same time avoiding marketing costs and open houses. Mr. Yardney said that when Sydney and Melbourne property markets boomed two years ago, vendors were more likely to auction their homes because rising buyer competition allowed them to fetch higher prices.

Trump/Russia review: Le Carré meets Mario Puzo in Moscow and Manhattan

21-May-2018

Le Carré has said on NPR that he believes “it’s perfectly possible that Trump was taken into what I call a honey trap – that he had ladies found for him, and he misbehaved in Russia.”

Like other investigators before him, Hettena, describes the astonishing web that connects the Russians who teamed up with Trump to bring the Miss Universe contest in Moscow to the notorious meeting at Trump Tower, where a motley crew of Russian conspirators offered Trump campaign officials dirt on Hillary Clinton.

German Cup final: Bayern Munich 1-3 Eintracht Frankfurt

21-May-2018

Goalkeeper Ulreich, who had stayed forward from a previous set-piece, was then left helpless as Eintracht cleared, and substitute Gacinovic raced more than 70 yards to run the ball into the unguarded Bayern goal.

Yates, who had been nominated by President Barack Obama, responded by saying that the attorney general or the deputy attorney general "has an obligation to follow the law and the Constitution, and to give their independent legal advice to the president."
