Spring 100 Test

Updated: Thursday 7th of October 2021 @ 7.15pm

What is really happening?

No speculation, no tea leaf reading, no novels on fence-sitting.

 

Till lockdown is over, we will build this page towards 100 selected zoom auctions over $2m and we will publish every result, till we are clear on what is truly happening in our vaccinated Top End Inner Melbourne family home market.

 

It will be 7 days a week, it will be small on opinion and big on reality.

 

Right now, the market is on absolute fire – but things change quickly – more stock, talk of interest rates, talk of war and lockdowns and stock market wobbles, all change things very quickly. So, check in regularly.

 

Turn to the one place you get the real news on what is really going on – James Buy Sell.

Considering mal & Gina in a top end buy sell?

“ How many agents do you know who have bought then sold a home for over $16m in Bayside, over $14m in Stonnington and over $13m in Boroondara this year?

 

That’s the market you are thinking? Well, those same three homes were all well above current sworn valuations, 40% above what 4 agents told the seller or 30% above the sale price of a very similar home, in the same street, on the market at the same time. Two were off market and one was public. All three have settled – they were real.

 

But who are they? You never saw their faces on the advertising, their names in the paper or possibly never made a phone call to them. I have worked with them on some of their grand deals and it’s hard to explain what they do, except to say it’s very calm behind the scenes.

 

It’s probably easier to explain what they don’t do. They don’t allow communication breakdowns, they don’t allow BS to the client or to the agent, they don’t allow restrictive thinking. They do provide left field strategies that can only come from knowing intimately how a buyer and seller think, how a great deal works.

 

You have heard of the horse whisperers, these two are more the house whisperers, level heads, grand expectations but with low profiles and follow through – continuing to go when for most, the going has got too tough. Stoic and consistent. They are respectful and patient.

 

They are a pleasure to work with and as they have recommended me at times, I too return the favour in a very genuine way. They do what we agents cannot – they work with us all or they work with one, whatever is in your best interests.

 

Happy to work with them. Happy to talk to you confidentially about them.”
