An interesting auction, this one. 5 Selwyn Street (listed by Stuart Evans) is a great property renovate (I thought), having sound property fundamentals (i.e. things you can't change) in place. In front of around 50 people, auctioneer Hamish Tostevin gave a thorough introduction then when no opening bids were forthcoming, announced a vendor bid of $1,400,000, looking for $20,000 rises. It didn't take too long for bidder 1 to come to the fore and offer this, then bidder 2 joined in the fun not long after. Bidding continued quite solidly in $20,000 increments until at $1,530,000 it was broken down. Further breakdown bids come into play and bidder 2 is losing puff - he offers $1,565,000 then is trumped smartly by the original bidder who offers $1,575,000. Property passed in at that level; pretty good buying close to the that, I thought. Sold after for an undisclosed amount.
