Auctioneer Tim Fletcher held the gavel today, and a decent sized crowd gathered all round this corner block. Whether it was strategy or cold weather, it looked like it was going to be slow going from the onset. An opening vendor bid of $1,150,000 was upped by a bidder to $1,175,000, but here things crawled along. A rise of $5,000 was offered, and deemed too small 'I'm sorry, I will take it later though', suggested Mr Fletcher, and this raised a chuckle from the crowd. However, when no other bidders emerged, the modest rise was accepted. Two were in it now, slow deliberating each bid. The sun was getting ready to call it a day, when at $1,200,000 a third bidder emerged, 'Where have you been all this time?' asked Mr Fletcher. The property passing into the new bidder for $1,220,000.
we sincerely appreciated the level, style and timeliness of communication delivered in preparing us for auction day and beyond.. Dear Gina and Adam
We spent the rest of Saturday on Cloud 9 - hoping we weren't going to wake up - and shared the news with family the following day.
Ben and I really have much to thank you for, from the beautiful flowers, and lovely photo card (nice touch!) received yesterday, the auction photos...
