November 8, 2019 Leave a comment

A large crowd braved the windy conditions for the opportunity to secure the blank canvas on offer at the auction of 2 Eley Road in Burwood.

On approximately 868 sqm, the existing home is a classic but the future for the new owners is filled with the possibility of building a five-star residence or townhouse development (STCA).

Five bidders took the auction from the opening bid of $1,200,000 to the final result of $1,570,000. An excellent outcome for our vendors, Anne & Andrew, and the lovely purchasers.

Results. It’s a Fletchers thing.

Auction Snapshot | 2 & 3 November

November 4, 2019 Leave a comment

The Melbourne Cup long weekend saw fewer auctions take place on Saturday. With a mere 146 properties scheduled under the hammer, buyers braving the cold helped deliver some big results across the state, culminating in a clearance rate of 74% and a healthy start to November.

Despite the pouring rain, Fletchers Partner & Auctioneer, Mark Fletcher, said that bidders were still out in full force, with an average of between 2 to 5 bidders seen at each Fletchers auction over the weekend. ‘It really shows the strength of the market since last year,’ he said.

Melbourne’s increases in house and unit values last month saw the 2.3 per cent jump become ‘the largest month-on-month gain since November 2009,’ according to data from CoreLogic Australia. With price rises tipped to continue into 2020, prospective buyers are being told not to wait to make their next move.

‘Values have risen now in the city for five straight months. Before that, they fell for 18 in a row. Victoria’s capital notched the nation’s highest quarterly growth of 5.5 per cent to a $650,197 median. This is shaping up to be a more rapid recovery than expected,’ according to the REA Group.

A standout result on Saturday included the auction of a 3 bedroom home at 24 Compton Street in Canterbury, which had five bidders fighting it out for the keys. The one-of-a-kind single level residence was sold by my team and I, who brought the selling price up to an incredible $286,000 more than reserve.

Results. It’s a Fletchers thing.

Listing Your Property With Fletchers

November 1, 2019 Leave a comment

Ever wondered what happens once you list your property with Fletchers? Whether you’re looking at selling now or early in the new year, this guide will give you a step-by-step of what to expect.


What happens behind the scenes?

This is a very busy time for us. Our entire team is immediately notified of the listing and clients on our database are informed.

Floor plan artists, photographers, copywriters and videos are booked (where appropriate), letters and flyers notifying your neighbours are prepared and disseminated and advertisements (including internet) are booked as per your advertising schedule. Additional brochures detailing what you love about your property may also be prepared.

Signboards and pointer boards are arranged and the property will be added to our weekly electronic email bulletins.

Most properties will be submitted to various media for possible editorial coverage.

We write to your legal representative requesting the necessary documentation on your behalf.

In most cases, you will be supplied with a calendar of events so you know what will happen throughout the entire campaign.

Fletchers team inspection of your property:

Each week, the Fletchers team discuss new listings for sale that are either viewed online or, where appropriate, inspected to enable them to promote your property to buyers.

Group team inspections when completed, more commonly known as ‘caravans’, are usually by prior arrangement with you and take no more than about 10 minutes.

Property keys:

When your keys are left with us, they are stored in a secure alloy locked box called a “Keysafe” which is secured at the property, or security coded and stored in a locked cabinet. Only Fletchers agents will know the code to your property.

Open For Inspections/Open Homes:

In most cases we recommend holding advertised ‘open for inspections’ to ensure that we get as many people as possible through the property, and so buyers feel more comfortable looking at the home without pressure. Also, the more people at the inspection the better, as people realise they have competition.

Rather than disrupt you on numerous occasions, you can also plan ahead for these scheduled inspections to ensure the presentation is 100%.

Buyers are only permitted to inspect the property when they have provided us with their contact details.

A consultant will always be there to speak to everyone who is in attendance allowing us to gain as much feedback as possible that we will report to you.

Our team closely observe people inspecting the home and though theft is extremely rare, we recommend that you remove small valuables from sight. ‘Out of sight, out of mind’ is always a good philosophy to consider.

The ‘For Sale’ board – how important is it?

A large number of buyers live locally or have been told about a property by a local resident so boards are very important.

The success of a board is reliant upon quality photographs, a concise and simple description including important attributes not obvious from outside, with clear contact details.

A well lit For Sale board gives your property 24/7 exposure – in rain, hail or shine!

Important: This general advice may not be relevant to you. You cannot rely on the legal aspects of this general advice; it is provided for information purposes only and you should please seek specific legal advice for contracts, sale documentation and settlement, and other legal issues.
