Fairness to buyers, mortgage multiples, and public super

If Monique Sasson Wakelin's interest is fairness for the buyer (Underquoting rears its ugly head), why not run a campaign to make sales histories available to members of the public? This is the system in WA, where one can apply to the Valuer General's department, now part of Landgate, and for a small fee obtain the information one needs.

My daughter had the misfortune of spending and wasting frustrating months in Melbourne when she was buying because the public can't get sales history information in that town. Apparently it is restricted to licensed real estate agents.
