Northern Weekly

We had been looking forward to the auction of 155 Clarke Street Northcote (Luke Sacco, ), a home we rated 659/1000 and one of the strongest looking properties I’ve seen for a while. I was quite taken by this with its link to the past, yet well renovated for the future. However, unlike the picture postcard image of this home, the auction was largely disappointing. After a long soliloquy from auctioneer Arch Staver, who was clearly enthusiastic about the , there were no more bids after the vendor bid of $1,850,000, and after a short intermission the was passed in.

Another surprising auction this weekend was for 43 Bennett Street, Alphington (John Karr, Nelson Alexander), a home we rated 713/1000. This is an almost a brand new home of very high quality. But after a festive start, the auction was somewhat of a fizzer, with just one bidder. The property sold after for $2,100,000.

Sales in the inner north-west at the have been limited in 2013, with only 25 St Kinnord Street, Aberfeldie (Rendina) and 19 Ardmillan Road, Moonee Ponds topping the $2 million mark.

Top end inner north-west buyers are reasonably insular in their of areas, mainly because the of precincts and private schools is limited compared to the eastern side. When is lower, this naturally has an effect on home at the top end.

The inner north-east has had a few more sales at the top end, with about half a dozen sales at above $2 million, another two above $3 million and one eclipsing the $5 million dollar mark just recently.

The inner north-east has a close connection to neighbouring high such as , , , Mont Albert etc, so there is some crossover there. Both areas are renowned for their private schools and their leafy streets, and quite often we find our clients considering properties on both the north and south sides of the Eastern Freeway simply for this reason.

Bidderbuzz Auction
"This was the smallest auction I attended this weekend - but by no means was it the quietest! In front of only a crowd of 50, there were six different bidders vying for the opportunity to purchase 49 Holyrood Street. Auctioneer Stephen Wigley kept things fairly succinct when describing the property, allowing the location to speak for itself. Anticipating the usual lengthy pause at the conclusion of his introduction, Steve was pleased to see a genuine bid immediately follow at $1,400,000. With six bidders and everybody spread down Margarita Street, spotting the bidders was a little more tricky. Many bidders like to position themselves close to the auctioneer however, on this occasion, they were hidden behind spectators and along the fence line on the far side of the street. The bids slowed to $5,000s leading up to $1,600,000, when the property was announced on the market. The bidding and number of bidders then started to escalate again, stalling momentarily at $1,780,000 when there was some confusion surrounding the amount. Once that was cleared up a few more bids were placed, the property was eventually bought for $1,795,000." (Kristen Hatt)

 

Biggest Sale: CAMBERWELL, 3 Fermanagh Rd
Steven Abbott (Jellis Craig); After Auction, $4,700,000 - 2 Bidders

"A great crowd for this auction and rightly so as the property was a very good one. Auctioneer Steven Abbott kicked things off right on time and confidently with a vendor bid of $4,000,000, right in line with campaign quote. There was a bit of silence from the large crowd so another vendor bid was placed at $4,100,000. "What's next, a vendor bid of $4,200,000?", I heard someone mutter in the crowd. Alas out jumped Bidder 1, matching the vendor bid and the auction is off and running. Bidder 2 pops up a few minutes later, standing on the other side of the street about 30 metres away in cap and sunglasses (is this standard uniform for a hot bidder?) and he was well pointed out by listing agent Richard Winneke. Bidding goes to and fro between the two parties and halts at $4,425,000, when a half-time break is taken. Upon a quick return from the Jellis Craig team, the news is that the property is not on the market but not far away, and some more bidding resumes. At $4,550,000 the property is still not on the market amid some shaking heads in the crowd as it was publicly quoted at $4,000,000, or just under. Bidder 2 eventually bids $4,600,000 and the property passes in to him. Sold after auction for $4,700,000 - which was a very solid result here. The house was a beauty and buying these are never easy." (Adam Woledge)

 

Biggest Pass In: KEW, 8 Lytton St
Maurice DiMarzio (Hocking Stuart); Passed In: $3,225,000 - 2 Bidders

"A quiet court location in the Sackville Ward, great place to be on sunny Melbourne late winter day. Properties don't come up in Lytton Street too often and for good reason - it is a wonderful location. On offer here is a dated home on 1240m2, north facing to the rear but with a narrow width commensurate to it's length. Auctioneer Maurice Di Marzio gives a no-nonsense spiel to the crowd. Auction opens on a crowd bid of $3,100,000 and shuffles along with two bidders, coming to a halt at $3,225,000. The half-time break is taken but really has impact here, and the property passes in without any further bidding. " (Adam Woledge)
