September market rises to the occasion

With the first few weeks of the Spring market now behind us, including the reopening of in-person property inspections over the past week or so, it is clear that the property market in Melbourne’s bayside suburbs is experiencing a step-up in activity despite the ongoing challenges of life in lockdown.

The old saying about “where there’s a will there’s a way” has been demonstrated time and time again. Buyers seem to have adjusted to bidding at online auctions without a hiccup, even when they were prevented from physically inspecting the homes, so the fact that they can now get through the front door by appointment has seen enquiry levels soar over the past ten days.

With the prospect of onsite auctions returning to the equation in late October, (although you will have to be vaccinated to attend), this is clearly the moment for prospective sellers to put their plans into action.

Here’s an outline of some of our recent activity:

Clyde North: 93 Castillo Avenue. Initially scheduled for auction, this good looking three-bedroom home in the Delaray Estate found new owners within a few weeks of hitting the market.

Clyde North: 73 Frankland Street. Buyers responded positively (and quickly) to the quality finish of this four-bedroom home in the Cascades Estate.

Cranbourne: 24 Sparrow Street. Our recent run of strong results on vacant land included the pleasing mid-week sale of this titled corner block in the Canopy Estate.

Cranbourne East: 22 Lineham Drive. Situated within walking distance of Casey Fields Primary School in the popular Mayfield Estate, this six-year-old home saw the SOLD sign go up during the week.

Cranbourne North: 9 Iris Close. Offering a low maintenance lifestyle without any shared driveway or Owner’s Corp fees, this two-bedroom villa made a real impact with its flood of natural light.

Frankston: 569 Nepean Highway. Last weekend’s online auction of this beachside allotment (pictured) with uninterrupted bay views topped $1 million, a great result for a vacant block of land.

Langwarrin: 1/101 Southgate Way. With easy access to the General Store and Gateway Shopping Centre, this convenient three-bedroom unit achieved a strong result after productive mid-week negotiations.

As you can see from these results, there’s no shortage of buyer activity in our part of town right now. However, if you are planning on selling then time is a factor you need to be aware of, particularly if you want to get in ahead of the anticipated flood of new listings later in the year.

So, if you’d like a confidential chat about the best ways to maximise your result in the current market, you can give us a call this week at Barry Plant Frankston on 9781 3100.

And finally, in closing, we’d like to wish all those Melbourne supporters all the best on their Grand Final win, and commiserations to all those Doggies fans. Don’t forget, there’s always next year.

Best wishes,

Barry Plant Real Estate
