With a couple of off-market sales among this week’s more notable sales results, we were reminded that keen homebuyers should ensure that they register their details and key priorities with our sales team when they are looking for a property in the current market.

There are some buyers that like to play their cards close to their chest; meaning that the only interactions they have with agents are at Open Houses and Auctions. However, if we don’t know exactly what you’re after, there’s a chance you may never get to hear about a new listing that is being marketed off-market, (i.e., with no advertising or internet presence), and we saw this strategy being utilized among a couple of this week’s results. These included:

Avondale Heights: 2/18 Rogerson Street

This brand-new townhouse, part of a boutique group of three, made full use of the off-market marketing strategy with buyers being sourced purely from our extensive database of registered buyers. The fact that a contract was inked so quickly for this property proved that in the right situation, a quieter sale can be a highly effective approach.

Avondale Heights: 15 Chaumont Drive

Tastefully renovated to enhance its broad appeal, this delightful three-bedroom home (pictured) was set in a popular family neighbourhood within walking distance of Milleara Shopping Centre. The kitchen drew many favourable comments with its stone benches and 900mm appliances, as did the living and entertaining spaces, both indoors and out! Some experienced negotiations after the auction produced a pleasing sale at $725,000.

Keilor East: 8 Woorite Place

This was another example of the benefits of a quieter approach to the market after another agent in the area had tried to find a buyer but failed. Making full use of towering raked ceilings and lush garden aspects framed by palm trees, this three-bedroom home enjoyed easy access to Penleigh & Essendon Grammar School and Spring Gully Reserve. A mid-week sale at $840,000 was the satisfying result.

Tullamarine: 24B Henderson Road

This free-standing single-level villa home offered a ‘mower-free’ low-maintenance lifestyle with its own street frontage. Providing three bedrooms, two bathrooms, generous open plan living spaces and a high-gloss kitchen with thick granite bench tops, this one saw five bidders compete in a tightly contested auction, with the gavel falling at a remarkable $615,500…more than 10 per cent about the ecstatic vendor’s reserve!

Whether you prefer to utilise an off-market approach, or spread the net further through a concentrated media campaign, there is no doubt that the current market in the City of Moonee Valley is presenting local homeowners with an opportunity to achieve a sale while the market is stacked in your favour.
