Indeed, the latest consumer confidence data from the Westpac-Melbourne Institute is indicating that consumer confidence is now at its highest levels for seven years, with Victoria leading the way in November with a 9% jump.
Figures like these are reflecting what our team is seeing at face-to-face level at property inspections, with buyers keen to make offers as soon as they find a suitable property. This is reflected in the number of the sales below that were sold prior to their scheduled auction.
Here’s a couple of examples of what’s been happening:
Aberfeldie: 6 Batman Street. Such was the appeal of its classic Art Deco styling and easy access to the Maribyrnong River trails, this eye-catching four-bedroom period classic sold well before this week’s scheduled auction.
Airport West: 127 Parer Road. Offering a turn-key solution for those seeking a modern, hassle-free lifestyle, this smart double-storey three-bedroom home (pictured) achieved a strong sale prior to its scheduled auction.
Essendon: 104A Bradshaw Street. Situated within a short stroll of the cafes on Keilor Road, this thoughtfully designed free-standing double-storey home combined a low maintenance lifestyle with an emphasis on quality, resulting in an excellent sale at $1.485 million.
Keilor East: 3/1 Woorite Place. Attracting interest from a mix of market entrants, downsizers and investors, this near new three-bedroom townhouse saw the contracts inked at $605,000.
Keilor East: 10 Craig Street. With around 574sqm of land backing onto the famous Rose Creek Estate, this potential-filled property was another of those that sold prior to this week’s scheduled auction, with the deal being completed on the low $800,000’s range.
