Ray White Belconnen had yet another successful Auction night at the Belconnen Arts Centre on Thursday, 31st October 2013.
Having sold 6 out of 9 properties under the hammer earlier in the month, the team backed it up selling 5 out of 6 properties under the Auction terms.
The highlight was the sale of a 6 bedroom house in Giralang which exceeded expectations going for a price of $605,000. Some $30,000 above reserve with competitive bidding from 2 parties. The property at 92 Canopus Crescent was in neat original condition and featured a 4 bedroom house upstairs and then a flexible living area with self-contained flats downstairs. The sellers were delighted with the result.
Other sales included a 4 bedroom home in Evatt which sold for $581,000 & 3 bedroom home in Spence that sold for $413,000. Both sales were negotiated by the Evatt & Spence expert Liam Wilson, who says the interest in the area remains high:
“Buyers are attracted to the value for money on offer, together with the proximity of the suburbs to Westfield Belconnen, CBD & Gungahlin” said Wilson. “Typically it is family buyers looking in the area, who appreciate having a bit of space around them, and like having a go0od local shops together with a choice of quality schools.
Mr Wilson has also just listed 2 new properties in Evatt and 1 new property in Spence due for Auction on 21st November.
Auctioneer Scott Jackson was the marketing agent for the property with the most registered bidders, with 4 people turning up to bid. The 3 bedroom home at 126 Atherton Street, Downer also went above expectations, and eventually sold for $605,000 under the hammer.
With a total of 11 out of 15 Auctions conducted in October sold under the hammer at a clearance rate of 73%, expectations are high for the next Ray White Belconnen Auctions to be held on 21st November. 9 properties will go up for sale on the night at the Belconnen Arts Centre
