Although the weekend’s weather wasn’t as sunny as we would have liked, the rain stayed away for most of the weekend which is always a bonus!
As expected, auction numbers have gone up since Cup Weekend, with a total of 720 auctions reportedly being held in Victoria last weekend, 567 of which sold. The REIV released the clearance rate of 79%, the other 21% being made up of 153 passed in auctions, 68 of which were from a vendor bid. Fletchers eastern suburb offices had an impressive success rate of 84%, with 21 of their 25 auctions resulting in a sale.
Proposing unlimited opportunities, 284 Elgar Road, Box Hill South sits on approximately 918 sq m of land, complimenting the 1940s, solid brick home which is still in its original condition.

The perks don’t stop there, as the home also features a double garage with workshop and a location that is surrounded by schools, transport and shops. On auction day, there were five bidders after this property, resulting in a sale well above the vendor’s expectations at $1.451 million.
