Despite the sunshine, temperatures were icy over the weekend and we struggled to warm up.
The REIV reported a clearance rate of 74 per cent over the weekend, with 462 auctions scheduled and 341 of those selling under the hammer.
In Ringwood East, the elegant three-bedroom home at 22 Nicholson Street was sold before auction. The home is situated on a large allotment of approximately 777 sq m, in an ideal court location and is ready for a new future. The home features open plan living and dining with spacious kitchen. Located close to a range of amenities such as schools, transport and shops, this home is perfectly suited to a growing family. Both the vendors and purchasers were thrilled with the result.
