206 Warrigal Road, Camberwell – what an amazing auction!

‘Around 120 people attended this cracking auction at 206 Warrigal Road in Camberwell.  Heated competition from five different bidders saw the price accelerate over $1,050,000 – eventual price undisclosed.  The house was in complete disrepair and did not add any value, therefore it proves large blocks of land (1,008 sqm) are still in high demand (mathematically it equates to more than $1,000 p/s/m!!).   Vendors are thrilled and brought in these sandwiches for Clara, Albert and our team to share – how lovely are they!  BTW … delicious.’  

Auctions as public entertainment? Read on……
