James Private Client Briefings contain far greater and more client-specific detail than what you see below and are available for full service James Search and Negotiate clients throughout Melbourne.
Contact us: For a private, confidential and no obligation discussion on what is really happening in your street, precinct and suburb from a buyer’s perspective, contact Architect Adam on 0413 318 079 or Gina on (+613) 9804 3133 or 0457 835 255 or Mal on 0408 107 988 from James Buyer Advocates.
Alternatively if you see us at an open for inspection or an auction please feel free to come over and say hello – perhaps we could send you a buyer rating, a result or simply open diaries and work out a time to sit down and talk about the market, values, negotiation, alternative homes or your needs from a buyer’s perspective.
For the record each of us is involved in 2 to 3 homes, around 20 inspections and attending/assisting/bidding on up to 4 auctions on a weekly basis – all in that specialist $M+ price range.
A sample of testimonials from satisfied clients http://www.jamesbuyeradvocates.com.au/testimonials.php
ELWOOD, 36 Tennyson St | Tony Pride (Pride Real Estate )
Under Hammer: $1,525,000 - 2 Bidders (Photo: Debbie McTaggart)
"Many of the crowd gathered to watch auctioneer Tony Pride sell this family home were there as much for the theatre of the auctioneer's skills as they were to find out the outcome of this hotly anticipated auction. Even the sun tried to break through on what had otherwise been a bleak day and the crowd delighted in the auctioneer's eagerness to weed out potential bidders. A genuine bid of $1,400,000 wasn't enough and a vendor bid of $1,450,000 quickly followed. A further bidder took the bait and raised the bid by $25,000. Referral to the vendor was time enough for the original bidder to assess how much he wanted the home and a bid of $1,500,000 was forthcoming. However, it was not to be and as a bid of a further $25,000 was made, there was a scramble by the agents to confirm the property was on the market (which it was) and it was bought for $1,525,000" (Debbie McTaggart)
Biggest Sale: ST KILDA WEST, 229 Canterbury Rd
Claudio Perruzza (Biggin & Scott); After Auction, $1,785,000 - 2 Bidders
"As a result of the heavy rain, auctioneer Claudio Perruzza called the small crowd into the dry confines of this impressive two storey Victorian terrace in the heart of West St Kilda. After asking for bids from the crowd, Claudio suggested that perhaps some background music might be appropriate to help bidders gather strength. The music didn’t come and Claudio was quick to bid $1,700,000 on behalf of the vendor. Two bidders were starting to see value in the property and were bidding freely, taking the price quickly to $1,765,000 before half time was called. On return no further bids were made and the property was passed in. Bought after for $1,785,000." (Guy Angwin)
Biggest Pass In: ST KILDA WEST, 47 York St
Greg Hocking (Greg Hocking); Passed In: $3,800,000 - 0 Bidders
"Auctioneer Greg Hocking brought his “A” grade preamble to the auction of this fine period family home in St Kilda West, only minutes to the beach and Fitzroy Street. After asking for and receiving no opening bids, Greg placed a vendor bid of $3,800,000, calling for rises of $25,000. Still no interest and half time was called. Upon his return, still no bids and the property was passed in." (Guy Angwin)
