Newsletters

Since January 2006, The Essential Information Group have sent our clients a newsletter every month detailing the previous months auction data. This includes an in-depth look at both national and regional auction statistics, splitting the figures into residential and commercial lots.

Below are those newsletters for all to see. If you have any suggestions as to what content you would like to see added to the newsletters then please contact us.
