Auction Report 26 August 2019

The 26 August 2019 portfolio included properties located within Sunnyhills and Bucklands Beach. As usual, there was a very pleasing attendance at the Headsail room of the Bucklands Beach Yacht Club, the home of Ray White Auctions. This included people who had registered buying interest, those who had expressed conditional buying interest and those who came along to see what is selling and for what price, to give an idea of what is happening very currently in the real estate market.

Highlights of the evening included the ‘under the hammer’ sale of 1/9 Tina Place in Sunnyhills, which opened with a confident bid at $630,000 and, after 10 further bids, sold at $695,000.

7 Yacht Place had attracted an exceedingly positive response during the lead up marketing period with outstanding numerous inspections, through both private and Open Home viewings, which resulted in seven extremely pleasing bidding registrations. A very positive start from the floor opened at $1,400,000, with bidding finishing at $1,600,000. At the time of writing this report we are still negotiating in a multi-offer presentation with buying interest.

We also continue to work with buying interest for both 23 Quedley Court and 94A Clovelly Road.

It is important to qualify results by noting that some vendors are not always able to accept buyer expectations of price, for various reasons. Nevertheless, auction marketing is a very positive way of testing the market in a defined space of time to determine if the buyer’s price will enable them to make the lifestyle/property change they envisage.

There are always various reasons why potential buyers cannot meet the terms of an Auction For Sale and Purchase Agreement, which is a totally unconditional agreement. However, as stated above, we try to work with these potential buyers to attract the best conditional sale for our client vendors.

As stated in my last report, during the mid-winter months new listings, in some years, can be more limited as vendors wait for the brighter spring months. However, as we have demonstrated again in recent weeks, there is very good buyer activity as buyers readily
recognise that when quality properties are offered For Sale, the time of year is of no consequence. Well marketed properties will sell each and every month of the year and with confidence. Vendors at this time of the year choose to market their properties now, rather
than waiting for the influx of spring listings, which will come to the market as we move into the coming month of September.

I continue to emphasise that we consider we are achieving extremely good price results for our vendor clients within a much defined marketing period, acknowledging that our challenge always is to meet vendor price expectations with buyer price expectations. As with all sales, there needs to be a ‘win/win’ on both sides - vendors need to be satisfied that the price achieved is the best the market for that item will allow and, buyers need to be satisfied that they have achieved ‘buyer value’.

As a foot note, I keep an eye on Australian trends through reports published by Williams

Media, which this week reported: ‘Buyers continue to be out in force during the final weeks of winter, with the latest preliminary results from CoreLogic indicating the capital city clearance rate for the week ending August 25 could surpass the previous week's mark. Data from CoreLogic indicated there were 1,412 homes taken to auction across the combined capital cities for the week ending August 25, in comparison with 1,228 the previous week. A preliminary clearance rate is expected to be the highest in two years.

Sydney recorded the highest preliminary clearance rate the city has seen since February 2017.

REINSW President Leanne Pilkington said while there had been an increase in volume, it was "nowhere near enough" to satisfy current demand. "Last week’s open home attendances were up 42 per cent, clearly demonstrating that buyers are back in the market," she said. "We just need some sellers to join them."

From Melbourne, REIV CEO Gil King said the institute's clearance rate of 81 per cent was the highest since the last week of April 2017.’

Auction Report 5 and 12 August 2019

Numbers within each of these portfolios reflect both the mid-winter listing activity, as well as the reports we have seen recently, particularly from the Sydney and Melbourne market places.

The more limited portfolios still attracted pleasing attendances to the Headsail room of the Bucklands Beach Yacht Club, the home of Ray White Auctions. They included people who had registered buying interest, those who had expressed conditional buying interest and those who came along to see what is selling and for what price, to give an idea of what is happening very currently in the real estate market.

5 August 2019

This portfolio originally included five properties. However, 2/45 Drake Street was sold a week prior due to a pre-auction offer which was accepted, subject to the property proceeding to auction at the earlier date. The bidding was opened at the pre-auction offer of $800,000 and, after 10 competitive bids, sold under the hammer for $821,000.
Another property was withdrawn due to personal circumstances and one property postponed.
Therefore, that left two properties for auction evening buyer attention.
28 Burswood Drive has received a conditional sale post auction and we continue to work with buyers for 1/188 Clovelly Road.

12 August 2019
This portfolio included four properties. 3/15 Greenhill Crescent completed a sale post auction. 68 Eighth Avenue received an offer for vendor consideration and we continue to work with this buyer and other interested buyers. We also continue to work with buyers for the remaining two properties.

During the mid-winter months new listings, in some years, can be more limited as vendors wait for the brighter spring months. However, as we have demonstrated again in recent weeks, there is very good buyer activity as buyers readily recognise that when quality properties are offered For Sale, the time of year is of no consequence.

As a foot note, I keep an eye on Australian trends through reports published by Williams Media, which this week reported: ‘There were 365 homes auctioned across Sydney this week,

lower than the 386 auctions held last week. Ray White NSW CEO/Auctioneer Jason Andrew, who successfully called four out of five auctions on Saturday, said the tide was definitely beginning to turn.

"If you’re considering putting your property on the market then there’s never been a better time to do so," he said. “With low stock levels, competition for properties before the spring selling season is pushing prices up, which is ideal for a vendor. There’s been a real transformation since the election because we wouldn’t have seen results like today before May.”
Melbourne volumes remained steady across the city (500 auctions).
REIV CEO Gil King said the weekend's results were "dominated" by Middle Melbourne.’

CALLING ALL BEACH LOVERS AND ECO WARRIORS

Join TEAM MICHAEL ELLSE for a clean-up of Bucklands Beach.

Plastic and rubbish on our beaches hurts more than just our eyes. Over 90 percent of seabirds have plastic in their stomachs. The plastic and rubbish also seep into the ocean, where fish eat it, thinking it’s food. A full 25% of fish sold in markets today have plastic in their systems, which then ends up in humans!

Come and make a difference with us, by spending JUST ONE HOUR picking up litter. We will provide you with disposable bags and gloves and lollipops, which will be sure to provide energy to our Eco Beach Warriors!

Following our clean up there will be a lolly scramble, so please stay around for that.
