Interest rate cut and Spring bring more top listings

With interest rates tipped to fall again before Christmas and Spring upon us, Fletchers is already seeing increased buyer activity and every day the agency is listing new properties as vendors take advantage of the strengthening market. Traditionally this is a time when many houses come on the market as owners capitalise on the warmer weather, flowering gardens and leafy surrounds to sell their homes.

This year is no exception and Senior Associate, David Taylor says several properties stand out. One of these is 6 Phillip Avenue, Box Hill North. Listed at $460,000 this is a beautifully designed 2 bedroom single storey home. David says the property features its own street frontage, a high secure front fence and compact low maintenance gardens.
“Boasting bright rooms, this property includes a generous living room with raked timber ceilings and fans and a spotless fully equipped kitchen/meals area,” he says.
“With gleaming polished timber floors and built-in robes in both bedrooms, this home has a lot to offer. The main bedroom has a split system air-conditioner, while the central bathroom has a spa and separate toilet.
“A large laundry with ample storage, remote controlled garage door, gas ducted heating, and alarm system means this home has many features. Close to Springfield Park, the bike path and bus, this property also has quick access to several schools, Box Hill Central’s shops, restaurants, buses, tram, trains and the Eastern Freeway,” David says.

He also recommends another listing at 808 Canterbury Road, Box Hill South. On the corner of Wellman Street, this 1940s double-storey brick veneer home possesses panoramic northern views over Surrey Park towards the Kinglake hills.
David says this home is in need of renovation and is an ideal site for a new home or a second residence subject to council approval at the rear entered from Wellman Street.
“The house includes a basic kitchen and bathroom on each floor, 3 bedrooms, an L-shaped living-dining room plus a large enclosed verandah upstairs.”
Near the bus, park, Aqualink, Kingswood College and the shops at Station Street, this property is only a walk to Box Hill Central’s shops and restaurants. It has a multitude of transport options. An elevated 720 sq m approx. corner site it is a rare redevelopment opportunity (subject to council approval).
