Fletchers Group News Update – 12 June

June 11th 2013

Auction numbers were down due to the long weekend, but Fletchers still achieved some impressive results on auction day. The REIV recorded a clearance rate of 69 per cent, compared to 58 per cent on the same weekend last year.

The most outstanding sale of the day was the four bedroom, two bathroom home, set on a corner allotment of approximately 717 sqm at 11 Boisdale Street in Surrey Hills. Auctioneer Tim Heavyside said that, ‘a four bedroom house on a corner block with a north-facing backyard was as rare as hen’s teeth in Surrey Hills’. Eight bidders agreed and battled it out for 25 minutes to secure the property. Featuring mid-century bathrooms, a new kitchen and a lounge room with an open fire place this was one not to be missed. Marketed for $950,000, after an amazing 99 bids the home sold for $1,060,500 – $110,500 over reserve!

The superbly located home at 3 Milton Road in Rye, was another great sale for agents Rebecca Marshall and Joshua Callaghan from our Blairgowrie office. Just a moments stroll to Bay Beach, this beach inspired brick veneer home, set on approximately 1020 sqm features open plan living, family room opening to a sun drenched, paved patio entertaining area and a shed fit for a king!

Situated in a convenient Greensborough location, 16 Cam Street is an ideal first home or investment. The home features three, recently renovated bedrooms with robes, an inviting kitchen and spacious lounge/dining and rumpus rooms. In a pleasing result for agents Craig Maskell and Dean Wolfe, this property sold for $466,000.
