Three Melbourne-based homes with a retro flair, which OzHomeNews flagged last week, were snapped up over the weekend, after going to auction on Saturday, January 30.
The first of the three houses at 80 Clegg Road, Mount Evelyn, was listed at $1.2million-$1.3 million and had an incredible outcome.
Ray White listing agent and senior auctioneer Allan Smith says the auction took off with a bang!
“We had nine registered bidders, made up of seven on-site and two online,” Allan explains.
“The first bid, which started at $1.5 million, dropped seven of the potential buyers, being out of their price range.”
The winning bid and sale price was $1.78 million – to a local family looking for a place with more room.
“This will become their family home,” Alan says. “They absolutely adores the retro-style of the home and so did the others who attended.”
The second home, at 23 Isabel Avenue, Ringwood East, sold for $907,000, which was a great turnout from the initial price guide of $750,000-$810,000.
Jellis Craig Ringwood sales consultant Lachlan Williams says the auction roared out of the blocks, including seven bidders in total on the day.
“The location was a massive factor for people on the day – it’ in such a convenient spot with plenty of amenities,” he says.
“The lady who purchased the property said she’s looking to elongate it and put a deck on the back – she’s a local and said her children will be going to the local school.”
The final retro gem OzHomeNews was eyeing last week, nestled in 62 Blair Street, Coburg, had an initial price guide of $1.45 million to $1.51 million.
This one sold on the January 30, the day of the auction, with a finishing selling price of $1.7 million.
The auction saw both vendors and buyers happy and excited to move into their new retro-chic abodes.
