Melbourne, you are on a winning streak of record proportions.
Our beloved Western Bulldogs have made history by qualifying for next
weekend’s AFL Grand Final against interstate rivals, the Sydney Swans
(surely reason to celebrate no matter what one’s own footy colours may be?)
Next Saturday promises to be one cracking game, no matter what the end
And in other news – and my favourite spring season topic – local property
sales continue to power from strength to strength as the weeks nudge on
towards summer 2016.
According to the Real Estate Institute of Victoria’s round-up of last week’s
results, a massive 81% of the 790 reported auctions sold.
It is a similar story from CoreLogic; 79.1% of 1090 scheduled auctions
scored a goal for sellers.
The week before there had been 861 schedule auctions across our suburbs and,
again, more than four in five (80% +) of these listed properties found a
buyer during the week – most of them under competitive auction conditions.
September is now at its end in terms of Saturday auction listings. It has
not paused all month. Virtually everything that reaches the market sold
within its auction campaign. It has been thoroughly exciting for our vendors
and hard-working sales teams to see such positive sales results flowing in.
Even the (wonderful) distraction of footy finals’ season is not stalling
buyers from attending our auctions, desperate to clinch a purchase before
the year winds down towards Christmas.
Auction numbers will shrink across the city next week as we stop to watch
the Dogs and Swans compete.
