Auction Wrap – 27 May 2013

The REIV recorded a clearance rate of 71 per cent on the weekend, compared to 60 per cent on the same weekend last year.

Fletchers achieved a success rate of 80 per cent, a strong follow up from the 88 per cent the previous weekend.

The fantastic weather certainly brought the buyers out with it, and I was pleased to be able to contribute 2 out of 2 properties sold to the company tally (can’t get better than that)!

My colleague Jason Salan and I were thrilled to achieve the fantastic price of $1.665 million for our lovely vendor, Fay, of 26 Bamfield Close in Templestowe. On an acre block in an exclusive Templestowe location, there wasn’t much not to like for the eventual purchasers!

The north facing, open plan living at 4/140 Nelson Road, Box Hill North was a real drawcard for potential purchasers, with three bidders competing to secure the as-new unit. It eventually sold for $510,000 with all parties thrilled with the result!

Last weekend I auctioned six properties, including the four units at 84 Winfield Road, Balwyn North. The process of auctioning one unit after another in the development went smoothly, with all selling under the hammer – a fantastic outcome for our vendors.

A highlight sale came from the auction of 29 Boisdale Street in Surrey Hills, which defied all expectations and was declared sold at $1.115 million. Five bidders pushed the property an impressive $215,000 over reserve!

Next weekend I am auctioning two properties, as one sold before – 18 Sutton Parade, Mont Albert North for $1.508 million…after only 9 days! Our vendors were thrilled with the oustanding sale price achieved.

Hope to see you at some of our open for inspections or auctions on the weekend!

Again I would like to thank all my clients, my infallible team and colleagues at Fletchers for all their support over the years.

It has certainly been a fantastic year so far and I look forward to what the rest of 2013 has to bring in the world of real estate!

A New Chapter

Last year, the REIV approached me to participate in a new chapter within the REIV. The purpose of the REIV Sales Chapter is to fill a void; to be an ear and voice to the REIV members, providing solid general practice and guidelines to the REIV from the perspective of sales people.

I was delighted to be appointed as Chairman of the board at the first meeting and look forward to this ‘new chapter’!

Here I am with the Vice-Chairman, Tamara Lloyd and current REIV Director, Richard Earle in an article from the The Estate Agent, the Journal of the REIV.

Auction Wrap – 13 May 2013

The REIV recorded a clearance rate of 72 per cent on the weekend, compared to 61 per cent on the same weekend last year.

Fletchers achieved a success rate of 90 per cent, with the market definitely surging forward. The interest rate cut last week is certainly assisting!

It was one of those beautiful Autumn days in Melbourne on Saturday, with plenty of colourful leaves everywhere. We sold 10 Station Street, Burwood under the hammer for an undisclosed amount, with five bidders in contention.

The auction of 14 Ryeburne Avenue, Hawthorn East prompted two bidders to put their hands up, with the period home selling under the hammer for $2.4 million.

During the week, my colleague Thomas Lo and I also sold 13 Winmalee Road in Balwyn for an excellent price of $2.4 million.

Next weekend, around 670 auctions are expected in Melbourne. Fletchers have 19 auctions scheduled and I have a big day calling six auctions, including the four units at 84 Winfield Road, Balwyn North from 11am.

Hope to see you at some of our open for inspections or auctions on the weekend!
