The Estate Agent – April 2014

I was featured in industry magazine The Estate Agent, the Journal of the REIV, in a special report about an agent’s ability to negotiate for their vendors.

Take a look at my new auction profile, featuring the sale of the delightfully renovated home at 219 Prospect Hill Road in Surrey Hills.

The marketing campaign culminated in an energetic auction with four bidders, and an excellent result for our vendors!

Auction Wrap – 29 June

The weekend of 29 June was crammed full of auctions, I had a total of five, including one on the Sunday. On what was a very cold and uninviting day we still had plenty of people venture out to be amongst the property action. There were again good numbers at auctions, with many people participating, resulting in big numbers under the hammer.

The REIV recorded a clearance rate of 73 per cent with Fletchers performing above industry average achieving a clearance rate of 80 per cent.

A great sale was the classic four bedroom plus study home at 12 Highview Road in Balwyn North. Tasteful updates to this home over the years have resulted in a warm and welcoming residence that is ready to move straight into and enjoy. With room for a growing family, a rear garden that presents a paved alfresco area and undercover terrace with a spa, this home has it all! Gail Logan and I were pleased- as were our vendors with the eventual selling price of $1,108,000!

The sun-filled period timber home at 19 Loudon Road in Burwood was another great sale for the day. The three bedroom home offers the opportunity to renovate, extend or build new (STCA) and four bidders battled for this property which sold for $945,000 an impressive $75,000 over reserve.

Another pleasing sale for the day was the three bedroom, single level town residence at 2/57 Thea Grove in Doncaster East which sold for $660,000.

The Sunday auction at 43 Wattle Vallet Road in Mitcham was also a great success! Six bidders competed for the property which eventually sold for $639,500.

It was a successful weekend all round, I achieved a 100 per cent clearance selling all the properties I had scheduled for auction.

Auction Wrap – 19 June

The REIV recorded a clearance rate of 71 per cent on the weekend, compared to 53 per cent on the same weekend last year.

Fletchers had a relatively quiet auction day, although there were generally good numbers seen at auctions and open for inspections. Demand is still outweighing supply!

My colleague Stephanie Michael and I were thrilled to sell the contemporary Art Deco inspired home at 4 Tanami Court in Bulleen, under the hammer. Four bidders saw the price sell for $37,000 above reserve, with an eventual sale price of $1.187 million.

We passed in the two bedroom unit at 7/52 Union Road in Surrey Hills and whilst we received a later offer on the day, the property is still available at an asking price of $560,000. The unit will be open for inspection this Saturday, from 10 – 10.30am.

Next weekend the REIV is expecting 750 auctions to be called.

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

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!
