Buyers still not big on waiting

Despite the fact that our weather has become increasingly wintery recently, (no wonder so many families are heading north for the school holidays!), one thing has not changed in the local property market.

As we have reported several times this year, homebuyers in the City of Hume are still showing a willingness to get in early when they find the right property, rather than waiting for the scheduled auction day.

We saw two more examples of this trend in recent days.

In Gladstone Park: An original but immediately comfortable three-bedroom home in Carrick Drive (pictured) attracted the interest of multiple buyers both for its wealth of renovation options and its convenient position with Primary and Secondary schools, parks, shops and buses all handy. So much interest, in fact, that the SOLD sticker went up more than a week before the scheduled auction, with a convincing early offer of $605,000 sealing the deal.

Meanwhile, over in Greenvale: As we reported a few weeks ago, a stylishly renovated four-bedroom home with an enormous garage in Rothesay Place, not far from the Greenvale Drive Linear Trail, attracted such strong interest during our initial Open House for registered buyers that it was sold before the auction campaign could really get started. In that situation the keys changed hands at $1.25 million.

As you can see, there is no shortage of buyers keen to purchase in our part of Melbourne, and they’re keen to do it as quickly as possible. The fact is that the only thing holding many of them back right now is the ongoing shortage of new listings hitting the market.

So if you are interested in finding out about how much more your property could achieve by selling now rather than waiting for Spring to arrive, you can call our team at Barry Plant Gladstone Park for an obligation-free chat at any time on 9330 1088.
