With our federal representatives of all persuasions clearly in unofficial election mode, and a number of pundits forecasting that May 14th is likely to be announced as the official date for the next elections, there is an opportunity right now for local property owners that should not be overlooked.

We all know that as we get into the last week or two of the election campaign we can expect all sorts of scaremongering and mudslinging to occur, and this has the potential to impact on people’s overall confidence levels. So if you’d like to achieve a property sale while the Autumn market remains strong, the time to get active is now.

Our most recent sales results show that is possible in the current climate, with careful planning and strong marketing. They include:

Airport West: 29 McNamara Avenue. The value of professional post-auction negotiations came to the fore on this stylish single-level side-by-die three-bedroom home, when the sold sign went up during the week at $850,000.

Avondale Heights: 12 Towe Street. Offering enormous potential for future renovations or even possibly rebuilding, this timeless three-bedroom home sold above our vendor’s reserve for $931,000.

Essendon West: 4/25 Emerald Street. This stylish two-bedroom townhouse located a stone’s throw from St Bernard’s College attracted such strong interest from the moment it hit the market that an early offer of $870,000 convinced our vendors not to wait for this week’s scheduled auction.

Keilor East: 52 Noga Avenue. This immaculate double-storey four-bedroom home was another to benefit from compelling early interest, with the SOLD sign going up well before this week’s scheduled auction at $1.05 million.

Maribyrnong: 13/31 Warrs Road. Part of a convenient group of townhouses just a stone’s throw from Highpoint, this street-facing two-bedroom townhouse found new owners at this week’s auction, with the contracts being inked at $560,000.

Strathmore: 2/24 Lind Street. Making the most of its own driveway and street frontage, this attractive three-bedroom townhouse (pictured) made the most of an effective auction campaign, selling for $935,000.

With results like these occurring every day, anyone planning on an Autumn sale should be able to move forward with confidence. So if you’d like to discuss your options, or simply to find out what your property could achieve in the current climate, feel free to give us a call this week at Barry Plant Moonee Valley on 9319 1700.

Best wishes,
