A bad day on the auction streets going into a mini break

A bad day on the auction streets going into a mini break

Not the best auction day in Boroondara today – of the 12 we are at only 6 sold.  While there were two standout five bidder auctions in Balwyn (25 Campbell Street – Peter Mitchell, Marshall White – sold for $3,000,000) & 113 Yarrbat Avenue – Hamish Tostevin, Marshall White – sold for $1,992,500) other results [...]

Is there anybody home this weekend?

Is there anybody home this weekend?

This week was another busy one – met some lovely people and saw some great and some not so great properties. Of the latter, one was dark, one felt cold and another lacked floorplan flexibility. (By the way, many of our Ratings of these properties do not make it to our public subscriber website. We [...]

There were three steps to the process. First we asked them to give [...]

Most people are focused on the footy – Mike Gibson says some good stuff coming on after the holidays.

Most people are focused on the footy – Mike Gibson says some good stuff coming on after the holidays.

This week we had higher than average enquiry levels and we had multiple new enquiries on the one property. My discussions with clients have been around saving money on A grade homes in the middle to late Spring – after the Winter of Waiting. There is a growing underlying demand from buyers who have been [...]
Another pretty solid day despite the lack of exciting stock – 68%

Another pretty solid day despite the lack of exciting stock – 68%

A solid weekend with some solid results. Of the eight auctions we reviewed today, six sold under the hammer, two were passed in (yet had bidders) and one sold before. No football in Melbourne and not too many auctions (compared to a similar date in recent years) probably explains why we saw very good numbers of [...]

Not a good a day to be selling between $1M and $2M – 38% Reported Clearance Rate.

Not a good a day to be selling between $1M and $2M – 38% Reported Clearance Rate.

It was a little tougher today, as our headline reflects, but this is largely due to the stock on offering. No real beauties today (although I did really like 6 Pine Street Hawthorn (Scott Patterson, Kay and Burton),  even though it did have a south-facing rear). Always felt $1.8m-ish to me and that’s what it [...]
Basically the little that was put up – SOLD.

Basically the little that was put up – SOLD.

My Week: An interesting week for me visiting homes in Brighton, Caulfield, McKinnon, Elsternwick, Elwood, Middle Park, Albert Park, Toorak, Clifton Hill, Abbotsford, Collingwood, South Yarra and Prahran- the life a traveling investment property negotiator. The standout property for me was 250 Kooyong Road Toorak. Designed 30 years ago by architect Kevin Borland, this two level [...]
