Three bidders leap into the fray as Mark Earle opens auction proceedings. There's quite a large crowd of about 90 people with heaps of neighbours and dogs enjoying the ambience of the coffee cart and expecting some stellar action and no-one is disappointed. There's no vendor bid needing to be cast around as Bidder 1 jumps in immediately with $2,250,000 and Bidder 2 raises the stakes with his $20,000 bid. Bidder 1 is strong and rounding up his bids to the nearest $50,000 as we leap to $2,440,000 before Mr Earle is able to catch a break to declare the property well and truly “On the Market” and it had been since $2,350,000. Both Bidders 1 and 2 are standing quite close to each other on the other side of the road bidding furiously until at $2,530,000 a well-dressed gent behind him politely interjects with an "Excuse me" and becomes Bidder 3. At this point Bidder 2 drops away and it becomes a bit of a tussle between Bidders 1 and 3 with both at one stage saying “No” but changing their minds and re-joining the action. The bidding advances in $10,000 rises and Bidder 1 is asked at $2,660,000 for his confirmation. "Oh alright" he says with little enthusiasm. After a short pause Bidder 3 raises him $5,000 which was met by another $5,000 and Bidder 3 folds his cards. The home is bought at $2,670,000 and there's much congratulations and jocularity between the winning bidder and the neighbours in the crowd and the dogs all wander home for a nap.
