If you needed any confirmation that 2021 has been a year unlike any other, (and we’re pretty sure you won’t), the fact that the real estate market in Moonee Valley has seen such a high degree of buyer activity this close to Christmas certainly provides it!

With sales ranging from the $400,000’s to the mid-$2 millions, and some auctions producing sales more than 20 percent above expectations, it’s fair to say that 2021 is finishing with a bang.

A cross-section of recent results has included:

Aberfeldie: 14 Jean Street. Capturing serene city skyline views from this elevated pocket near the river, this striking contemporary home sold well before this week’s scheduled auction at an impressive $2.43 million.

Airport West: 3/57 McIntosh Street. Set at the rear of a group of only three, this three-bedroom townhouse sold more than a week before this week’s auction for $803,000.

Airport West: 128 Halsey Road. A rare vacant allotment in this established area near Westfield attracted six bidders to our mid-week auction. The sale price of $1.04 million was more than 20% above our ecstatic vendor’s reserve.

Essendon: 6/50 Richardson Street. Hidden behind a lush tree-lined streetscape, this one-bedroom flat with a private courtyard was another to sell prior to auction, reaping $418,500.

Essendon: 2/12 Graves Street. Well-maintained and enjoying a location close to the cafes on Keilor Road, this two-bedroom villa made the most of a mid-week sale, reaching $740,000.

Essendon: 12 Spencer Street. A spirited bidding duel at this week’s auction produced a remarkable sale at $1.6 million, a quarter of a million dollars above expectations.

Keilor East: 57A Wingara Avenue. Boasting a rare combination of privacy and convenience, this immaculate two-bedroom villa sold well before the scheduled auction. The contracts were inked at $695,000.

Keilor East: 35 Boardwalk Place. Capturing a lovely outlook over the lake in the highly regarded Valley Lake Estate, this three-bedroom town residence achieved $835,000 in a strong pre-auction sale.

Keilor East: 19 Valley Lake Boulevard. Our second sale in the Valley Lake Estate this week involved a vacant homesite of around 440sqm (pictured), which found new owners at $888,000…good luck for some!

Keilor East: 39A Roberts Street. Brand new and reflecting a cutting-edge design, this three-bedroom contemporary home saw the sold sign go up during the week at $1.135 million.

Keilor Park: 20 Collinson Street. A prime corner block framed by towering palm trees made strong first impression to this three-bedroom home. This week’s auction saw the deal done at $842,500.

Niddrie: 80 Garnet Street. Offering a low maintenance with no Body Corporate, this free-standing three-bedroom home achieved a satisfying $935,000 a week before the scheduled auction.

Niddrie: 1/138 Hotham Road. Three determined bidders clearly wanted the keys to this spacious three-bedroom front unit. It took a bid of $1.05 million to win them.

The good news is that our team at Barry Plant Moonee Valley will still be very active this week with multiple auctions still to be conducted before we take a break for the festive season, so if you need any advice or assistance, you can call us on 9319 1700.

Best wishes,
