Changes on the condominium advertisement market until December, 1st, 2012?Since November 17th, 2012 until December 22nd 2012, 1474 advertisements of the Viennese condominium market, listed in the IMMO Kurier were analyzed. The IMMO Kurier is a supplement of a well-known Austrian daily newspaper, which appears every Saturday. Due to the investigations it could be identified, that the total amount of advertisements decreased whereas the quantity of advertisements including the calculated heating demand increased. Therefore real estate agents are fulfilling the legal requirements of EAVG 2012 and do not risk penal provisions.
