Easter is a time to give thanks

It may seem an odd thing to say given the challenges we are all dealing with at the moment, but while Australians are finding their way through a different kind of Easter this year, it is worth remembering that we are a nation that seems to find ways to deal with whatever life throws at us and still come out the other end stronger and more resilient.

The property market is just one example of dealing with these challenges. It seems that barely a week goes past without a new restriction being unveiled as our state tries to minimise the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic, which is certainly making life more difficult for anyone trying to buy or sell a home at the moment, (or those whose job it is to assist them).

Yet despite all the hurdles, people are still finding ways to buy and sell property, and we saw several more examples of this during the past week or two.

One example involved a one-bedroom apartment (pictured) in Fletcher Street, one of the more desirable pockets in Essendon within a short stroll of the Essendon train station, route 59 tram stop and bus lines. Set on the second-floor, this residence attracted interest from a mix of investors and first-time buyers, not the least because of its close proximity to local cafes and Windy Hill, so a strong sale was soon concluded at $326,000.

At the opposite end of the scale, a potential-filled site in Clydebank Road, Essendon West also found new owners after a mix of local builders and local homeowners keen on renovating or extending the existing four-bedroom home all showed interest. Nestled in a highly prized neighbourhood close to several popular schools, this property found new owners after a satisfying mid-week sale was negotiated at $1.09 million.

Remember, if you are planning on making a move that involves selling, buying or both, or team is always available to assist you with experienced advice and sound strategies to help you get where you want to go. So don’t hesitate to call us at Barry Plant Moonee Valley on 9319 1700.

Best wishes,
