Here it is 15 minutes after Whaleoil

The Joneses real estate agency in liquidation – 18 Feb 2008 – NZ Herald: New Zealand Business, Markets, Currency and Personal Finance News

Here is the first MSM mention of The Jones’s going into liquidation, posted at the herald’s website a full 16 minutes after me. What makes it worse for them is that I knew at 1.00pm and couldn’t get near a computer until 2.14pm.

Nevertheless guess who gets the blame for their demise?

Again the MSM don’t seem to have these details but they site according to the emails I have got, that the higher interest rates, downturn in the housing sector and the general malaise that is settling over the Real Estate industry at the moment.
