14 Lisbuoy Court, TOORAK

BOUGHT* RANGE - $4,760,000 - $5,305,000
In this leafy, “blue chip” cul-de-sac in one of Melbourne’s premier suburbs, Toorak, the crowd gathered out the front of this property, ready to watch the hammer slam down with a big “Sold!” yelled out. Rather than a “sold” yelled out, it was “passed in” instead. Auctioneer John Bongiorno was his usual cheery self, engaging the crowd with a burst of banter on occasion. In his usual style, Mr Bongiorno kicked things off with a vendor bid of a “low-ball” $4,500,000. Asking for increases of $50,000, Mr Bongiorno ensured that this bid wouldn’t win you the keys to the property, just first choice at the bidding table. Also, by bidding now, it would give you access to bragging rights at tonight’s dinner that you “gave bidding a go at a Toorak auction”. The one and only bidder of the auction thought this was a pretty good deal and offered an additional $50,000. Refusing to take a half-time break, Mr Bongiorno asked for any further advances, received none, and passed the property in at $4,550,000.
