8 of the 9 James rated homes sold at auction today

, 12 Parlington St: Alastair Craig () stands centre stage, in front of an audience of around 55. Bought under the hammer, $2,015,000, 2 bidders. (Watch our auction video)

Key Points:

  • Bigger crowd numbers out there today.
  • I attended 5 auctions  and there were  3 bidders at 4 of these. Partly prices have altered (for the better) and partly due to better stock on the market today. There will be even better offerings next weekend – May 28.
  • Buyer advocates out in some force.
  • Some bidding for themselves seemed very timid – one bidder was like a mouse and unsurprisingly missed out buying the property.
  • James Tostevin, Marshall White Hawthorn “The market is fickle and hard to get a read on at the moment. My team involved in 6 today and 4 sold”
  • Geoff Hall, Noel Jones Camberwell “Sold 4 from 4 today – multiple bidders at most of those – 46 Auburn Parade quoted at $1.05-$1.15m – no bids at auction but four parties approached after the auction and property sold at reserve price.  Market is looking a bit subdued this winter, good time to take a holiday”
  • Balwyn 13 Campbell – James Tostevin – Bought for $3,200,000 – see our report
  • Hawthorn 28 Fordholm – Desiree Wakim of Marshall White – A smidgen under $3,000,000.

"The sun is on my back and boy this is a lovely place to be for an auction. Nice little single fronted with a rear upstairs master, parking at rear and lovely north garden. In any market this should rock along fairly nicely from a conservative quote. Should be multiple bidders and a result today. Auctioneer Clayton Smith starts off in front of a crowd of 90. There is bit of a buzz, I feel sure this will sell here and now. And so we start with a suggested bid of $1,000,000 from Bidder One. Bidder Two is in and we are away in $10,000’s very quickly to $1,180,000. This was strong bullet bidding and after a pause we are at $1,200,000 with two more bids. Still only two bidders. Somebody yells out the question “are we on the market” ( well done) and the answer is no. Bidder Three enters and it's announced “on the market” at $1,230,000. Bidder Four joins in with a strong bid and quickly we are at $1,280,000 breaking down to dribs and drabs until we reach $1,330,000 and bidder 4 is out. Looks like Bidder Three is going to win this little beauty. Bang it's sold - great little auction. Really good home, sensible price and guess what? - bidders responded. " (Mal James)

 

Biggest Sale: BALWYN, 13 Campbell Rd
James Tostevin (Marshall White); After Auction, $3,200,000 - 2 Bidders

"A lovely Melbourne autumn afternoon and the setting couldn't have been better for auctioneer James Tostevin and his Marshall White team. An expected crowd of around 120 attended this auction - the house has wonderful presence and the land size is very good. Opening with a vendor bid of $2,850,000 and looking for $25,000 rises, one bidder joined the fray at $2,900,000. Bidder no.2 then joined in and this auction was underway with a series of $25,000 increments. An unusual bid of $3,011,000 was offered by the original bidder (was that all left in the tank?) and the second bidder then finished at $3,050,000, and the property was passed in. Bought after for an undisclosed amount about 5% over the pass-in figure." (Adam Woledge)
