An open mind makes a big difference

When you look back over the past couple of years, there is no doubt that a number of aspects of life have changed…and real estate has not been immune from this.

However, it is important to keep in mind that not all of these changes have been negatives. For example, the smarter members of our industry have learned the value of flexibility and innovation in ensuring that clients achieve the best possible results when selling. Others, unfortunately, continue to take a blinkered approach to marketing property…the old, “my way or the highway” approach.

The past week provided a timely reminder of this. Unlike some others, our team at Barry Plant Gladstone Park continue to offer auctions where bidding both from onsite attendees and online participants is encouraged. To our way of thinking, the more bidders you enable to participate in an auction, the more likely you are to achieve a genuinely exceptional result for the vendor, and our recent results have confirmed this once again.

They included:

Gladstone Park: 6 Prior Avenue. This potential-packed three-bedroom home on a convenient corner block near Gladstone Park Secondary College saw spirited competition between three onsite bidders and another who was bidding online from a caravan park where they’d taken their family for the long weekend! As a result of this additional competition, the SOLD sign went up at $750,000 and, as you can see from the photo, our vendors were more than happy with that result.

Greenvale: 22 Clare Boulevard. Making the most of a park-front position overlooking Yuroke Creek reserve, this elevated four-bedroom contemporary home sold through competitive mid-week negotiations, with the keys changing hands at $1 million.

Tullamarine: 21 Carol Grove. Potential was the word on everyone’s lips when it came to this older style three-bedroom home on around 600sqm of land near the Primary School. The contracts were inked at $770,000.

Westmeadows: 1/33 Kenny Street. This brand new four-bedroom, three-bathroom town residence, strategically positioned between Westmeadows Primary School and Ripplebrook Reserve, sold above reserve after a productive auction campaign, attaining $740,000.

As we mentioned last week, the Autumn market in the City of Hume is looking really positive. So if you’re curious to get an obligation-free update on what your own property could achieve right now, feel free to give us a call this week at Barry Plant Gladstone Park on 9330 1088.
