One auction we were looking forward to this weekend in the inner north-west was 19 Richardson Street in Essendon (Christian Lonzi, Frank Dowling Real Estate – Essendon). This is a grand looking home, although not overly large, but it was well-renovated and had a lovely feeling. It lacked an ensuite and the flats to one [...]

Bay View The focus this week seems to be on whether the current interest through open houses would convert into home purchases. Agents, vendors and buyers alike have all been eager to see the results. Talking to selling agents during the week revealed quite a bit of anticipation.

Of the four auctions I attended in Port Phillip, only one sold under the hammer: 108a Addison Street Elwood.

Well done to Matthew Morley of Morley Real Estate for [...]

Market picking up, but still lacking depth

At 6pm on Saturday, the James $M+ Clearance Rate was 60% across the 30 auctions we attended. The Weekly Review Bidderman was 1.3 bidders per auction. This confirms our view that while the market is looking okay when you look at clearance rates, it is thin on the ground when it comes to bidders. Almost two [...]

The Top End has definitely picked up (in activity – not price) – after Easter new stock is low

Saturday March 31st: Solid finish to the month – partly as a result of vendors lowering their expectations as they feel the market may get worse before it gets better, partly due to some good stock and partly because buyers can’t really see anything of note on the market after Easter. But to keep some perspective [...]
