Boroondara Weekly

A quieter (and wetter!) day in the Boroondara $1m+ auction streets today. Pass-ins (and waiting around) seemed to be the order of the day, and one needed to have an umbrella handy.

Solid results were -

19 Florence Avenue, Kew (Diana Healy, Jellis Craig)  – selling over $3.6m. This was a quality new home in good location – ‘A’ graders continue to perform well, and this property is testament to that.

2 Monomeath Place Canterbury (Richard Earle, Jellis Craig) – A-grade package selling over $3.1m – one bidder.

93 Liddiard Street,  Hawthorn (Lachie Fraser-Smith, BenMac) – selling under the hammer for $1,807,000 – 3 bidders. Renovated doubled fronted Victorian over a single level with prized northern backyard  - yes it is located on a busy street but discrete  rear access did compensate for that somewhat.

These properties do represent an exception to the rule however as there were plenty of pass-ins, and many properties remain on the market as we speak. Of the 33 properties scheduled for auctions yesterday over $1m, about 60% of these passed in and 16 remain for sale as we speak.  You can add of course a handful that were not reported. Still a buyers market? We would think so.

Design Smart, Adam

"Wow! What an auction! If anyone needed a masterclass on how they should bid at auction they should have come to this one! Auctioneer Lachie Fraser-Smith, ever-the-gentleman, chose to stand out in the rain to allow the crowd of about 60 to fit in the family room. This is where the pleasantries ended however as a confident $1,400,000 opening bid was made followed by a vendor bid of $1,500,000 to keep things going. One bidder became two and then three towards the end as each bidder tried to play out their different strategies. All the conventional rules of bidding were thrown out as all manner of bids were made including a huge $44,000 increase at the death knock in attempt to shut the competition out. However the original bidder was un-swayed and triumphed in the end by not finishing on a round number and the property was knocked down at $1,807,000." (Joshua Bong)

 

Biggest Sale: CANTERBURY, 2 Monomeath Pl
Richard Earle (Jellis Craig); After Auction, Bought range: $3,020,850 - $3,323,250 - 1 Bidders

"A nice sized crowd of about 50 turned up to this auction despite the weather turning sticky and humid. Auctioneer Richard Earle was at the helm and, despite his enthusiasm, the crowd was shy and only one bidder put their hand up to bid. This bid was good enough for Mr Earle as he promptly passed the property in to begin negotiations with the sole bidder. Bought after for an undisclosed amount." (Joshua Bong)

 

Biggest Pass In: HAWTHORN EAST, 452 Barkers Rd
Mark Dayman (Marshall White); Passed In: $2,000,000 - 0 Bidders

"A subdued auction, with a small crowd of about 20 in attendance. Auctioneer Mark Dayman began proceedings with a vendor bid of $2,000,000 and passed the property in not long after for the same amount. The crowd mostly made up of neighbours quickly dispersed into the rain." (Joshua Bong)
