Auction Snapshot | 7 & 8 September

September 9, 2019 Leave a comment

Buyers were not put off by the return of blustery, winter weather conditions on the weekend, generating plenty of auction competition. Domain economist, Trent Wiltshire, said that it was another strong Saturday of results for Melbourne, with the REIV recording a clearance rate of 77 per cent.

“Auction numbers remain low, below this time last year, but they look to be increasing to more normal levels,” Mr Wiltshire said. Approximately 549 auctions were held, compared to 799 at the same time last year.

The Fletchers team ended the day with a success rate of 83 per cent, with many sales concluded in the wet weather!

I sold the property at 72A Strabane Avenue in Mont Albert North for the second time, knocking it down to the highest bidder at $1,080,000. My vendor, Amy, was featured in the Herald Sun as a great example of ‘how to present your home for sale’ by painting the home inside and out prior to selling.

Results. It’s a Fletchers thing.

Auction Snapshot | 31 August & 1 September

September 3, 2019 Leave a comment

On the first auction weekend of Spring, we relished the return of some sunshine and almost 20 degree temperature!

The REIV recorded a clearance rate of 76 per cent from 585 auctions called, a significant improvement from the same time last year, when a clearance rate of just 59 per cent was achieved.

The Fletchers team ended the day with a success rate of 86.7 per cent, with agents and auctioneers surprised at just how strong the level of competition currently is. Partner and Auctioneer, Steven Zervas commented that, “there seems to be a real fear of missing out amongst buyers”.

In conjunction with Industry Insider advocate, Andrew Date, my colleague Stefan Cook and I saw six bidders compete to secure the five bedroom Californian Bungalow at 381 Station Street in Box Hill South. On a corner block, the home offered great potential and sold under the hammer for $1,721,000.

Results. It’s a Fletchers thing.
