Sales figures confirm buyer activity

If you’ve been following these weekly posts during the past few months, you’ll already be aware that we have been reporting some fairly positive numbers on the local property market in the City of Brimbank.

That trend continued this week, when the Barry Plant network was able to utilise the back cover of the Realestate lift-out in Saturday’s Herald-Sun to announce that our group was able to successfully sell 508 properties in May. That number was substantially up on the 405 sales in April which, in itself, was a terrific result given all that was happening in our world at that time.

Numbers like these, along with the impressive level of buyer interest that we reported in LAST WEEK'S REPORT, are a great sign for anyone considering selling a property in our part of Melbourne over the next month or two.

This positivity was certainly evident in a number of recent sales that our team at Barry Plant St Albans were able to achieve for our clients.

One example was a much loved and proudly maintained family home (pictured) situated in Theodore Street, a highly prized and convenient pocket of St Albans, a short walk from St Albans North Primary School and Keilor Plains train station.

Offered for sale for the first time since built, this three-bedroom home attracted plenty of attention from market entrants who commented positively on the free-flowing floorplan and the renovated kitchen which featured stone benchtops and stainless-steel appliances. Competitive interest resulted in an excellent sale at $682,000, which resulted in smiles all round from all involved.

The key piece of information for anyone considering selling in the current market is that sales results like these confirm that the buyers are definitely out there in numbers, the only thing holding the market back at all is a lack of available properties for sale. So, if you’d like an update on what your property could achieve in the current climate, you can give the team at Barry Plant St Albans a call this week on 9367 7044.
