40 Bringa Avenue, Camberwell – Record Price!

September 10, 2014 Leave a comment

A great crowd gathered over the weekend for the auction of 40 Bringa Avenue in Camberwell – and what a fantastic auction it was!

I fielded bids from six competing parties who wished to secure the property. Competition was strong, and they pushed the eventual selling price well above both the vendors and my own expectations!

We are definitely cutting new ground with this result, $1.015 million for a 2 bedroom villa unit! The market is certainly going to be hot this spring, and I think this is a sign of many more strong results to come.

Great auction, great result, needless to say I had very happy vendors and purchasers on my hands!


The Sunday Age – 30 March 2014

I was quoted in The Sunday Age after a huge auction weekend, with over 1,000 results reported to the REIV. Fletchers performed strongly again, with an above industry success rate of 83%.

Consumer confidence is high and prices are still rising. The REIV is expecting another big weekend with over 1,000 auctions expected to be called.

Auction Wrap – 3 May 2013

The REIV recorded a clearance rate of 72 per cent on the weekend, compared to 59 per cent on the same weekend last year. Fletchers sold 11 out of the 17 properties scheduled for auction, with a success rate of 65 per cent.

We had great numbers at our open for inspections this week and called one auction. Really looking forward to tomorrow – I’m calling the auction for a landmark property at 434 Elgar Road in Box Hill (one the corner of Hopetoun Parade).

Next weekend, around 740 auctions are expected in Melbourne. Fletchers have 15 auctions scheduled, so should be a busy weekend!

Hope to see you at some of our open for inspections or auctions tomorrow!

The happy vendors & purchasers

On a beautiful sunny Saturday, this gorgeous Californian Bungalow was auctioned before a substantial crowd of onlookers, selling for the fantastic price of $1,110,000.  For a closer look at this beautifully renovated property, go to 

As you can see by the happy faces in the photo, both vendors and purchasers were pleased with the final result – although our Hawthorn scarf wearing vendor probably wasn’t as pleased with his team’s final result against Collingwood the night before!

“A big thank you to Melanie Jackson, Tim Heavyside and their team.  This was our first sale experience and we couldn’t be happier.  We were amazed by the amount of people who attended the open for inspections and the auction, which was all thanks to a very professional advertising campaign.  They were so supportive, caring and attentive to our needs.  I would highly recommend them for their personable professionalism, eagerness, optimism, honesty and integrity.” –  Joe & Jacqui

The suggested marketing campaign was very effective and we received exceptional levels of communication, being kept fully informed with the progress of the sale at all times. We would not hesitate to recommend Tim Heavyside and his team to anyone wanting a fresh and energetic approach to selling their home.”
