Bayside Weekly

Bayside Weekly
This week in Bayside there was action in terms of sales, although open numbers still seemed mediocre. Crowd numbers at auctions today were average, but bidder numbers seemed consistently stronger – in particular at land value auction sales: 37 Margarita St Hampton (Frank Hellier) had 5 bidders 101 Dendy St Brighton (Halli Moore and David Hart) had [...]

This week around the traps – the men and women at Kay and Burton were out in force on their quiet and off-market sales Armadale, 14 Myamyn St (Gowan Stubbings – Kay and Burton), this was sold for the mid $3 millions in 2009, and changed hands again during the week for towards the mid $4 [...]
The bounce is continuing in the later spring market.

The bounce is continuing in the later spring market.

At 6pm on Saturday, the James Clearance Rate for $M+ was 75% on the 28 auctions we attended. The Weekly Review Bidderman, our demand indicator, was 2 bidders per auction. Both those stats indicate that the bounce was back in the market this week, after last week’s more subdued market. $M+ Clearance Rates: Boroondara – 88% on [...]

Boroondara Weekly

It was a reasonable day on the Boroondara auction streets on Saturday, although it was still a little subdued compared to Super Saturday a few weeks ago. Of the 12 auctions we attended, 9 sold and 3 passed in (75%), which aligns closely with the overall $1m+ market in Boroondara (72%). Some observations: The hammer rate, where [...]

Bayside Weekly

This week Bayside performed admirably with a 68% clearance rate and 1.5 bidderman – figures similar to the overall $M market. 5 out of the 8 auctions we reported on sold today. There are fewer auctions next week but steady increases in auction numbers for the early weeks of December. A land value sale of note [...]

In Bayside, in certain pockets, things are happening. North Brighton is moving and it’s making sense. 11 Foote Brighton – Trudy Biggin – 750 sqm of land in North Brighton near the beach sold this week, for $2,200,000 or around $3,000 per sqm metre. Coincidentally the same price as was paid 2 years ago. [...]
Maybe now is the time to see the glass half full, rather than half empty.

Maybe now is the time to see the glass half full, rather than half empty.

At 6pm on Saturday, the James $M+ Clearance Rate was 61% across the 31 auctions we attended. The Weekly Review Bidderman was 1.5 bidders per auction. While those figures did not represent a noticeable improvement in the stats, we think the market has shifted to a positive note in the last fortnight as you will see [...]

Boroondara Weekly

As we move well into spring, the large train that is the Melbourne property market is slowly starting to move. Of the six auctions we attended this weekend, five sold and Bidderman was a healthy ‘2’. Boroondara is seeing good numbers of people out looking  – and there are some good properties to look at. While auction numbers [...]

Stock on the Up. Quoting on the Down!

At 6pm on Saturday, the James $M+ Clearance Rate was 72% across the 25 auctions we attended. The Weekly Review Bidderman was 1.6 bidders per auction. Welcome back!  So, what do we have now? – What’s been happening? – Where is the market at? – What’s in front of us? This week was really about brushing off [...]
To some “Bank Vals” are important, to others not so!

To some “Bank Vals” are important, to others not so!

Upper end home values in general and Bayside in particular are being “raked over the coals” by the banks at the moment – not to put too fine a point on things. Directives implied or specific have come from the banking bosses that the Top End, an in particular Bayside, is a little “fruity” for now [...]

Bayside Valuations Bayside upper end home values are being “worked over the coals” by the banks at the moment – not to put too fine a point on things. This can be a positive and sensible thing for banks to do in light of the information they have. They actually are acting prudently (which is good for [...]
Spring’s first big test – Pass is the mark.

Spring’s first big test – Pass is the mark.

At 6pm on Saturday, the James $M+ Clearance Rate was 65% across the 31 auctions we attended – a solid result. The Weekly Review Bidderman was also a very solid 1.8 bidders per auction. There was a fairly even spread of ducks, lone rangers, norms and volcanoes. This weekend was the Spring Market’s First Big Test, with [...]
Sold Under the Hammer. No its not, even when you think it is.

Sold Under the Hammer. No its not, even when you think it is.

It’s on the market at $1,550,000, it’s sold under the hammer at auction for $1,990,000. Only it is not. Three times this year we have bought properties for LESS than what the home either cost, was sold under the hammer or was passed-in at auction. Hawthorn East: In the first instance we bought a home in Hawthorn [...]

Port Phillip Weekly

This weekend, the clearance rate for the eight properties up for auction in Port Phillip over one million dollars was 83% – solid. Amongst the most interesting auctions this weekend was a basic knock-downable Victorian(STCA) at 48 Kerferd Road Albert Park, sold by John Holdsworth of Greg Hocking Real Estate for $1,205,000, or a respectable $5,355 [...]

Boroondara Weekly

On Saturday I attended four auctions in Boroondara and all four sold – yet only one of these was under the hammer. In a word, the market is very ‘mixed’ right now and with the Grand Final only five weeks away, pickings remain slim. This week I attended the Jellis Craig 2012 Client Seminar (thanks to [...]
