Is your property ready for a Spring sale?
Is your property ready for a Spring sale?
Are you considering making a move in 2017? The start of Spring is now just a couple of weeks away, which means many home owners in our area of Melbourne will be making decisions about whether they plan to take advantage of the peak selling season to make their next move in the property market. If you are one of them, here’s a few tips on how to prepare your property for the Spring market: De-cluttering is vital Nothing hides the available space in your property more than clutter, so be ruthless in removing all those bits and pieces that you’ve accumulated over time. As the temperature starts t...

Ripper renovation doubles Wheelers Hill home’s value
A WHEELERS Hill house that underwent a ripper renovation has almost doubled its value in just under two years.The four-bedroom home at 23 Strathconnan Place reaped $2,388,888 million after only two weeks on the market, according to Barry Plant Glen Waverley sales director Adrian Santini. It was last snapped up in August 2015, for $1.251 million.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        ...
Over 100 bids shows Winter market power
Over 100 bids shows Winter market power
If ever you wanted to see living proof of the strength of the Winter market in the City of Moonee Valley, you would have been wise to drop into several of this week’s auction to watch the Winter market dynamics in action. Not only did our team at Barry Plant sell six out of today’s seven auctions, (with negotiations continuing on the seventh as I write this report), but the level of competition produced some exceptional results for several vendors. Indeed, one auction in Strathmore saw 107 bids placed, with the auction taking around 35 minutes before the gavel fell! Among this week’s results w...
High profile auction produces big result
High profile auction produces big result
This week’s property market results in the City of Moonee Valley confirmed just how broad the current levels of buyer demand are. Whilst one auction in particular probably enjoyed the most attention, compliments of some serious media attention in the lead-up to today’s auction, it was interesting to note that our sale results this week extended from the $2 million bracket right through to a sale below $500,000. Perhaps the highest profile sale this week involved a property that was selected as the Herald-Sun’s ‘Pick of the Week’ in last Saturday’s newspaper (pictured), so there was quite a bit...
Vendors not the only ones being blown away!
Vendors not the only ones being blown away!
Well, the weather certainly had an impact on today’s activity in the property market in Melbourne’s west. We had boards being blown over, flags trying to take off, even the SOLD stickers were creating some interesting new shapes as the wind got hold of them! In fact, we were forced to conduct today’s auctions indoors, just to ensure that all the participants felt safe. But the good news was that despite the difficult conditions, our team at Barry Plant Sunshine was still able to achieve yet another 100% Auction success rate for our vendors, with every one of today’s auction reaching a terrific...
Record breaking auction results despite chill
Record breaking auction results despite chill
The sky was grey, the odd rain shower made its presence felt and the chilly breeze had plenty of buyers turning up their collars…but if you thought the weather might affect today’s auction results, think again! In fact, our team in Brimbank was able to achieve an impressive list of excellent results this week, both through auction and private negotiation, including setting several new local price records! Read on: Hillside Two strong sales during the week included a 3-bedroom villa in Timele Drive for $516,000 and a 3-bedroom home on a huge allotment in John Paul Drive for $580,000. Keilor Dow...
The property market – it’s all about people
The property market – it’s all about people
For many people watching the recent activity in the property market, their main focus is often on the numbers. Whether it’s the volume of auctions, sale prices, bidder numbers or how far over a reserve the bidding went, people tend to go looking for clear, concise ways to measure the performance of the property market. However, one of the things you learn when you’ve been in real estate as long as I have is that the greatest rewards in this business tend to be more about human emotions than they are about numbers. Sure, the result matters…(obviously)…but I often find that it is the stories beh...
Why we never forget that feeling
Why we never forget that feeling
There’s a real temptation at times, particularly when you’re dealing with a highly competitive property market like the one that Preston (and Melbourne generally) has right now, to focus on numbers. Let’s face it, when the median house price keeps climbing the way Melbourne’s has in recent years, those numbers can be quite amazing. However, here at Barry Plant Preston we never forget that the real estate business has a lot more to do with people than it does with simple statistics, and we were reminded of this again today when we got to see the sheer delight of a young couple when their proper...
Record breaking property market continues
Record breaking property market continues
The latest figures from the Real Estate Institute of Victoria have revealed that the Melbourne property market set a new record for the number of auctions in the first six months of 2017. Importantly for local property owners, the northern suburbs played a prominent role in setting this new record. As you can see in the table above, Epping, Reservoir and Craigieburn were all among the Top 5 suburbs for auction activity in the first half of the year. The REIV Data indicates that a total of 17,630 homes were auctioned across Melbourne’s suburbs in the first six months of the year. This is a big ...

The benefits of buying off the plan
The benefits of buying off the plan
For some people, the idea of buying a home that hasn’t actually been built yet can be a cause of some concern. However, buying a property off the plan can also have a number of benefits for buyers. It all comes down to your own priorities and situation.Potential stamp duty savingsWhilst recent changes by the State Government have limited the stamp duty benefits of buying off the plan for investors, (unless they act before June 30th, 2017), there are still huge savings to be enjoyed by those buyers who are purchasing their own home off the plan.Maintenance cost savingsBy buying off th...
