Despite not being refurbished for 53 years, it sold more than $ 400,000 in reserve.
You can’t summarize Sydney’s real estate boom like a devastated home that sells for $ 2.3 million.
That’s exactly what happened at the weekend auction in a four-bedroom, three-bathroom home in Greaves, on the outskirts of the city center.
The 311 square meters of real estate was the real estate of the deceased, who, after 53 years of devastation, needed a “complete refurbishment” according to realtors.
It didn’t discourage enthusiastic buyers who exceeded the lowest price by $ 400,000 to win a home on 181 St. John’s Road.
“I was surprised,” Ray White’s Matt Carvalho told news.com.au about his sale.
“I thought it would be great to reach $ 2 million, but I was very surprised.”
Carvalho explained that in the weeks leading up to the auction, he had to work hard to disappoint clients.
He added that it had “a size of land suitable for the area” and was in a good location, but the house “needed a complete renovation.”
They had set a minimum price of $ 1.9 million, but he thought he would be lucky if he could get it.
“No one actually showed more than $ 1.8 million (in the amount they are willing to pay),” he said.
“The campaign didn’t start very strongly. The numbers quickly dropped. We raised the Buyer’s Guide from $ 1.7 million to $ 1.6 million,” Carvalho added.
The house a few doors down recently sold a “$ 2 million shy”, which was in much better condition. Logically, this should have been cheaper.
But things turned around at the last minute.
“Suddenly in the last week we got a lot of attention,” he said.
They were expecting half a dozen registered bidders, but that day nine appeared.
After the house exceeded $ 2 million, the nine bidders fell into two serious buyers.
One of the aspiring homeowners bid $ 150,000, raising the price from $ 2050,000 to $ 2.2 million in a single move.
Rival bidders then added an additional $ 25,000 to the original bid. But then he offered an additional $ 75,000 and the price was exactly $ 2.3 million.
Successful buyers plan to renovate their home and hire a lessor to turn it into an investment property.
Carvalho said his recent success is evidence of the fact that rumors of a market slowdown have been greatly exaggerated.
The real estate market has risen 21 percent nationwide this year.
ANZ predicts that the rate of increase next year will be much lower, only about 6%.
The forecast is that the market will fall by about 4% in 2023.
