Fletchers Group News Update – 23 October

October 22nd 2013

The REIV recorded a clearance rate of 71% over the weekend, compared with 59% on the same weekend last year. Fletchers achieved an above average clearance of 74%, continuing the strong performance seen in recent months.

There were many fantastic sales for all agents last weekend, including the delightful two storey, four bedroom plus study home at 20 Bright Place in Blackburn South. Offering two spacious living rooms and a superb alfresco area, it’s easy to see why this property was so popular. There were four bidders throughout the auction which concluded with a great selling price of $830,000, a pleasing result for vendors, buyers and managing agents Maurie Walters and Chris Chrysos.

Another outstanding sale for director Jason Salan and agent Ebony Driscoll was the immaculately maintained two bedroom home at 31 Corby Street in Balwyn North. Offering the potential to renovate, extend or build new this home is bursting with opportunity. With a northern orientation and mountain views, five bidders fought to secure this property, pushing the eventual sale price to $1.222 million.

The tastefully renovated two bedroom villa unit at 8/180 Surrey Road in Blackburn was another gratifying result for managing agents Brooke Warwick and Tim Heavyside. With a bright and sunny courtyard, stylish new kitchen and bathroom set in a prime position at the front of the block, the interest in this property was clearly apparent on auction day. Seven participating bidders were seen at the auction and the property sold over reserve for $485,000.

Heading into the busiest auction weekend of the year, the REIV is expecting a whopping 1,600 auctions to be called around Melbourne. Fletchers agents will be working hard with 40 auctions to be called throughout the group.

The 2013 REIV awards for excellence were held last Thursday night at Crown Palladium. It was terrific to see such a great number of the Fletchers team attend to support Fletchers 7 finalists. A special congratulations goes to Chris Chapman who was awarded the REIV Salesperson of the Year (non-principals). Fletchers were also honoured to be awarded the REIV Website of the Year for 2013 (4th time). It was a great night enjoyed by all.
