Selling your house without an agent is doable but what exactly does it take?
Australia's property boom is keeping real estate agents busy, but could you buy or sell a property without one? Brisbane man Philip, who did not want to use his surname, thought as much and sold his Fairfield home without an agent. "I have an aversion to paying someone else to do something I can do myself," he told ABC Radio Brisbane.In his mind, real estate agents do three things: put an advertisement online, show potential buyers through the property and negotiate a price. "I can do that, and you can do that too," he said.
Johnny and Winona were engaged for three years between 1990 and 1994.
The pair starred alongside each other in 'Edward Scissorhands' in 1990 and were known for their mutual love of poetry.
The 49-year-old actress - who recently defended her ex-fiance at court after he was accused by ex-wife Amber Heard of physical and verbal abuse - previously said of her romance with the 57-year-old actor: "It was absolutely like nothing before.
"We hung out the whole day… and night, and we’ve been hanging out ever since. I love her more than anything in the whole world.”
The first NFT auction commences at 9am ET today (04.05.21) and ends 5pm ET on May 5, 2021 on OpenSea at the official Johnny Depp auction.
