10.6 Any estimated sales cost produced by use of the Content is not intended to replace a professional valuation of sales costs through an appropriately qualified person (such as a valuer or licensed agent) as the Content does not take into account the scope for variations in sales costs due to matters such as the location and market conditions, fluctuations in availability of properties, cost information and the delivery and lead time and does not include any allowance for costs associated with content removal costs, landscaping costs, furnishing hire costs and the costs of rectifying damage caused during any demolition and construction phases to the land or improvements of the property for sale.

The Customer should exercise its own skill and judgment when considering investment decisions and seek professional advice where appropriate. Forecast Data is current only at the date of publication or supply and may change over time. Proply expressly excludes any warranties and representations that Forecast Data is an accurate prediction of future market performance.
