Hawthorn, Canterbury, Camberwell, Glen Iris, Kew, Hawthorn East

Hawthorn, Canterbury, Camberwell, Glen Iris, Kew, Hawthorn East
33 houses reported for sale today under $1.8m and only 2 passed in. Bidderman 1.6 Balwyn was interesting today with 9 reported auctions and 4 pass-ins but drill down on the stats a bit more and you see anything under $2m sold and everything over $2m passed in. Drill down again and those pass-ins were all double storey [...]

Hawthorn, Canterbury, Camberwell, Glen Iris, Kew and Hawthorn East

Boroondara is awash with property today and while still a strong day Alastair Craig put it best saying buyers were a little thinner on the ground at each auction than they have been over the last few weeks. Jellis Craig sold 33 out of 42 at auction and he felt that shows [...]
Strong but a little patchy – probably some vendor price issues

Strong but a little patchy – probably some vendor price issues

It is 6pm Saturday and the James Auction Clearance Rate on the 26 $1 million-plus properties we attended and reported on today was 69 per cent. Three Cheers for Greg Costello and Evelyn Papadopoulos of RT Edgar Brighton. Today they auctioned a flat in Holyrood St Hampton with a publicly declared and advertised reserve. And [...]

Hawthorn, Canterbury, Camberwell, Glen Iris, Kew and Hawthorn East

Where the market liked the property they went at it hard. Bidderman 3 Boroondara’s reported $m+ clearance rate on all suburbs except Glen Iris was 77% on 26 auctions. The highlights being the big 3 over 3 by Jellis Craig. Dean St Kew ($3.99m), Wattle Valley Rd Canterbury ($3.65m) and Stoke St Kew [...]

Hawthorn, Canterbury, Camberwell, Glen Iris, Kew and Hawthorn East

Boroondara had the most auction activity today, both in number of auctions and number of bidders. Also plenty of choice over the next three weeks with 48 and 61 million-dollar-plus auctions planned for the last weeks in November. The Celia Street Glen Iris story: One interesting result: same-sized blocks (642 sqm to 675 sqm), same sorts [...]
Huge Crowds – Big Results – Bidderman at 3.3

Huge Crowds – Big Results – Bidderman at 3.3

Bidderman at 3.3 that is 3.3 bidders per auction 43 – yes 43 over a $million and 10 passed in for a clearance rate of 77%. Rock Solid and rising market. Crowd numbers were huge and on the auctions below they were averaging over 100. In Bayside there are some 100 strong turn outs but 40 [...]
In the trenches: report on million-dollar Melbourne

In the trenches: report on million-dollar Melbourne

It is 6pm Saturday and the James Auction Clearance Rate on the 32 $1m+ properties we attended and reported on today was 72 per cent. The REIV’s clearance rate was declared at 82 per cent but they are missing around 200 auction results and our guess is the clearance rate has dropped below 80 per [...]
Not as many bidders as Stonnington but still strong.

Not as many bidders as Stonnington but still strong.

We looked at 27 campaigns over a million in Boroondara this week – 27 and of those 22 sold. When talking with James Connell of Marshall White he said of his company’s weekend results in Boroondara and Stonnington, 8 sold before hand; 20 sold at auction and 3 passed in. That [...]
Q&A with Jellis Craig’s Director Scott Patterson

Q&A with Jellis Craig’s Director Scott Patterson

For many years, Scott Patterson has been the “pin-up” auctioneer of Hawthorn and surrounds – well, according to the ladies we represent, he is. Scott is the “new face” of Jellis Craig. Our personal dealings with Scott have always been straightforward and, while we have had differences and probably will continue to [...]
It is time to hit the Button?

It is time to hit the Button?

It’s 6pm Saturday and the James Clearance Rate for million-dollar-plus auctions is 68 per cent on the 19 auctions we attended today. In this week’s Market Wraps, we are most appreciative of the time and effort Scott Patterson of Jellis Craig (Boroondara), Iain Carmichael of Bennison Mackinnon (Stonnington) and David Hart of Buxton (Bayside) put [...]

Very strong in Boroondara again this week Some highlights: 13 Celia St Glen Iris Paul Williamson of Jellis Craig: Land (641 sq metres) sold today for $1.301 million at auction. A few doors up at 45 Celia, and effectively its twin (675 sq  per cent on land in this area in a few months? Well, these [...]

Camberwell, Kew, Hawthorn, Canterbury, Hawthorn East, Surrey Hills and Glen Iris

Boroondara continued it’s strength and perhaps moved up another notch. Alastair Craig of Jellis Craig said today was a very strong market day and we have to agree with him. 79a Harcourt Hawthorn East (Rathmines Precinct) and north facing rear gave us another clear indication of land values. Bulldozer home on 523 [...]

Camberwell, Kew, Hawthorn, Canterbury, Hawthorn East, Surrey Hills and Glen Iris

312 and 314 Cotham Kew: a big parcel of land sold through Walter Dodich of Marshall White for $3.42 million or $1800 per sq metre on just over 1900 sq metres, which does appear to show that, in this case, on Cotham Road you get a significant discount per sq metre [...]

Markets, talking price and late bids.

It’s 6pm Saturday and the James Clearance Rate for million-dollar-plus auctions is 60 per cent on the 20 auctions we attended but that may change by Sunday. The market today (Saturday) was again strong across the board but crowd numbers continue to drop and there was a 40 per cent pass-in rate at [...]

Camberwell, Kew, Hawthorn, Canterbury, Hawthorn East, Surrey Hills and Glen Iris

24 Kingsley Street Camberwell, Jeremy Desmier and Alan Bramich of Fletchers. James Home Rating: 702 out of 1000. Really good street presence and with some planting down the sides will be an even better classic Victorian. Front rooms are impressive however the back needs attention. Will you over capitalize? - no.
