Buyers await a restart on Thursday.

As most people will already know, we’ve been reporting high levels of buyer activity in the bayside suburbs of Melbourne throughout the year to date. So you won’t be surprised to know that there were large numbers of frustrated homebuyers the moment the State Government announced on Friday that property inspections and onsite auctions were to be put on hold due to the latest lockdown.

Of course, the good news for frustrated homebuyers is that at this stage the lockdown will only be in place until midnight on Wednesday. This means that most auctions around Melbourne have only been put back by one week and have been allocated new times on Saturday January 20th. If you’d like to check on the auctions we have coming up, you can do that by CLICKING HERE...

We are anticipating a busy restart for the local market as soon as the office reopens on Thursday morning, so if you are keen to inspect any of the properties we currently have on the market, you’ll want to keep your eye on our upcoming Open House times. Alternatively, you might like to have a chat with one of our team during the week to make a time for a personal inspection.

Despite the distractions, there was still plenty of buyer activity before the lock down was announced. Recent sales activity in our area has included:

Frankston: Tower Avenue. Utilising our unique Sale by Set Date® methodology, this contemporary two-bedroom villa achieved an early result with the keys changing hands at $526,500.

Frankston South: McComb Boulevard. Set at the rear of a group of just two, this near new four-bedroom town residence promised an easy-care lifestyle in the coveted Frankston High School zone (pictured). It was smiles all round when this one achieved an outstanding mid-week sale at $950,000.

Clyde: Creekside Street. Standing proudly in the popular Hartleigh Estate, within walking distance of Clyde Shopping Centre, this modern double-storey four-bedroom home provided ample flexibility for an upsizing family. A strong sale at $720,000 was the pleasing result.

Cranbourne West: Megan Close. Enjoying ready access to a range of shopping options and both Primary and Secondary Schools, this well-presented three-bedroom home had plenty of market entrants excited about starting their property journey. The SOLD sign went up at $575,000.

Don’t forget that whilst our office doors may be closed until Thursday morning, our team at Barry Plant Frankston is still available to assist you via telephone, so don’t hesitate to give us a call if you need any advice or assistance on any property-related matter.

Cheers,
