BOUGHT* - $2,320,000
It is late Saturday morning, the sky is grey and a few raindrops fall as a crowd of 60 watch the auction of this well-presented two bedroom Neo-Georgian home. Abercromby's auctioneer Tim Derham goes through the ritual of presenting the relevant contractual points and highlights the many attributes of this renovated property that had sold fairly recently in the low twos. “A magnificent renovation” he sums up and it will be interesting to see how prices have held up in the last two years. However, the auction starts slowly. With no bids forthcoming, a vendor bid of $2,200,000 is lobbed to entice a buyer to come forward, and $25,000 rises called for. This works as two bidders emerge to compete to see who will be the new owner. Swiftly the price reaches $2,300,000 and then there is another pause, so Mr Derham goes in to consult. On his return, he states “it’s close, but not on the market yet” and just as he is about to pass it in and calls it three times, he’s offered two further bids of $10,000 and then it stalls at $2,320,000. Mr Derham goes in to consult for a second time, and on his return pronounces it “on the market”, and as there are no further bids it is bought by the last bidder.
