Stonnington Weekly

Stonnington Weekly

Not the greatest day for Stonnington, with most of what was on offer attracting little interest. If you look a little deeper there are clear reasons why. 1097 Malvern Road, Toorak – The Road 4 Arkle, Prahran – The Price – This is a good little home and there were two bidders, so the problem for now [...]

Bayside Weekly

This week our discussions were about uncertainty and how it can affect buyer decisions. At the moment there is uncertainty about the new stock levels coming on to the market (we’re hoping for more choice in Spring), there is increasing uncertainty regarding banks’ preparedness to lend (see our Market Insight article); and there may also be [...]

Port Phillip Weekly

The two key properties of the 8 $million plus properties up for auction this weekend in Port Phillip were: 18 Faussett Street, Albert Park, which we had rated well at 673. This Hocking Stuart property, managed by Michael Coen, was a goodie, having been recently renovated to a high standard, with off-street car parking and only [...]

The Banks are starting to pull the market strings!

At 6pm on Saturday, the James $M+ Clearance Rate was 50% across the 32 auctions we attended. The Weekly Review Bidderman was 1.5 bidders per auction.  Half the auctions today were lone rangers (one bidder) or ducks (no bidders).

Ian Jackson of Kay and Burton moved a couple of biggies this week with an off-market property producing the second biggest number in Bayside this year, as well as another with large land, tennis court and pool at 522 Balcombe Road Black Rock. It had an ask above $3m but got a result below [...]
Market picking up, but still lacking depth

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 [...]
Boroondara Weekly

Boroondara Weekly

It was a reasonable weekend in Boroondara and the 86% clearance rate certainly indicates that good properties will attract good competition, and that even those that are not so good will sell, as long as they priced correctly. Numbers have been very good at most opens and auctions but, then again, the pickings [...]

Market Summary Welcome back to Marketnews after a month’s hiatus. When we left you last month, the fridge door had opened on the market and the mood was a little sombre. July hasn’t really [...]
Boroondara Weekly

Boroondara Weekly

Saturday was a reasonable auction day in Boroondara, with the million-dollar-plus market bouncing back with a clearance rate overall of 71% and Bidderman at 1.5  – compared to last week at 45% and 1.4 respectively. I couldn’t say however that there were any runaway prices here. The result was mainly due to vendor adjustment to the [...]

There were pass-ins galore this weekend in Boroondara. While numbers at auctions were reasonable, with many perhaps keen to witness for themselves the train wreck that [...]

First winter weekend – the mood is frosty but the results remain solid for the best in Boroondara

First winter weekend – the mood is frosty but the results remain solid for the best in Boroondara

In Boroondara, the auction mood was a little frosty. But in the jewel suburbs of Kew, Hawthorn and Hawthorn East, 8 from 8 scheduled auction properties sold. Of the 8 auctions we attended, 5 sold – so the news overall was not too bad. Most of the top selling agents continue to get solid results, namely: Scott [...]
