Fletchers Group News Update 20 October

We enjoyed some lovely weather over the weekend, perfect for getting outside and enjoying some auctions!

The REIV reported a clearance rate of 74% over the weekend, with 1,101 auctions scheduled and 682 of those selling on the day.


 In Ringwood, 15 Maidstone Street went under the hammer. Sitting on a block of approximately 448 sq m, the neat home offers a lot more than meets the eye. Ready for its new owner’s personal touches, the three bedroom, two bathroom home features two separate living areas and a spacious kitchen with access to undercover outdoor courtyard. The perfect opportunity for a growing family or investment, this home had four eager bidders on auction day. Reaching well over reserve, the home sold for $725,000.

Offering the perfect beginning for a new family’s dream, 44 Pakenham Street in Blackburn had plenty of attention throughout its campaign. Sitting in a tree-lined pocket, the three bedroom home features a lounge room with open fireplace, open plan dining and kitchen fitted with stainless steel appliances. The attractive residence is located within walking distance to schools, transport and shops.  On auction day, the home sold for an impressive $1.16 million.

In a perfect parkside location, 29 Parkside Avenue attracted a range of interest and on auction day had four keen bidders hoping to secure the home. In an enviable position on approximately 723 sq m, the existing home is comprised of three bedrooms, light and spacious living and dining rooms, large kitchen meals area and a generous rear garden. With such a large allotment on offer, there is the opportunity for a prestige new home or town house development (STCA). At auction bidding reached $156,000 over reserve, with the home selling for $1.631 million.

In Box Hill South, offering serenity and warmth along with a golf course vista, 45 Wellard Road is ready to accommodate a new family. The four bedroom home sits in a quiet pocket that backs onto Box Hill Golf Course. Awaiting an enthusiastic entertainer, the home features a lounge with open fireplace, sun filled dining with French doors to a north facing deck and a superb kitchen. Three prospective purchasers were hoping to call Wellard Road home; the property eventually sold for $1.340 million.

Located in a premier locale, 12 Iramoo Street in Balwyn offered buyers a luxurious single level home. This sophisticated property has been elegantly rendered and features a lounge and dining room, French doors that leads to a private courtyard and a granite kitchen that overlooks an appealing open plan living area. Flooded with sunshine, this home has three double bedrooms, zoned refrigerated air conditioning and a double auto garage. Its desirable location attracted four bidders and was sold at auction for an overwhelming $2.21 million!

At 8/19 Trent Street in Glen Iris, those who inspected where destined to be impressed. The new townhouse combines a double storey floorplan and generous proportion creating impressive living space and accommodation. The three bedroom home is quietly positioned in a development of just 8, close to Camberwell junction and the Monash Freeway. There is a very spacious living and dining room, skylit staircase and a private rear courtyard. Auction day saw the property reach $127,000 over reserve, selling for $827,000.

We had a great day at the Our Lady Primary School fete in Surrey Hills on the weekend. Director and Auctioneer Tim Heavyside called an energetic auction and it was a great day for the whole family with plenty of stalls, yummy food and lots of rides to enjoy.

This Thursday, the REIV ‘Awards for Excellence’ will be held at Crown Palladium. We are looking forward to recognising and celebrating the fantastic work our colleagues have achieved within the real estate industry. Fletchers are finalist in two categories, ‘Large Residential Agency of the Year’ Award and ‘Best Website’ Award. Todd Lucas from our Manningham office is also a finalist for ‘Outstanding Young Agent of Year.’ We are looking forward to a great night and hope we can come away with a win!
