It was a quieter weekend of auctions due the ANZAC day long weekend. The weather started out chilly but the welcome afternoon sunshine warmed us up. We spent ANZAC day reflecting on the service and sacrifice of all Australians who have served in war or on peacekeeping operations, both past and present.
The REIV posted a clearance rate of 77% over the weekend with 472 auctions reported to the REIV, 365 of those selling.
Fletchers network of offices achieved a success rate of 67% over the ANZAC day long weekend.
In the perfect location, 2/6 Dunlop Avenue in Bayswater North appealed to first home buyers and downsizers. Sitting on a generous allotment of 474 sq m, this two bedroom unit features an updated bathroom, lounge and family room which borders the kitchen. The sunny backyard offers a covered patio and established north facing gardens. Its quiet yet convenient location is close to schools, shops transport and parkland. Auction day saw two committed bidders looking to call Bayswater North home and the property was sold under the hammer for $400,000.
Located in Burwood East, 12 Inga Street offered an exciting opportunity to redevelop (STCA) or build a dream family home. The generous block of 630 sq m is located within the MWSC zone and is conveniently located close to shops and transport. The existing weatherboard residence has been partially updated and features original floorboards throughout, a cosy front lounge, functional kitchen and three bedrooms. Auction day saw this home reach well over reserve, achieving a fantastic sale price for our vendors.
The colonial style weatherboard home at 29 Boisdale Street in Surrey Hills offered prospective purchasers family living close to Wattle Park’s unique urban bush environment. The charming home features large windows with garden views and polished boards, whilst the generous kitchen opens to a meals/living area. With opportunities to further renovate or build (STCA) in a prime location, potential purchasers were keen view this property. On auction day there were two competitive bidders that helped this colonial style home sell for $1.518 million.
