Entry Level Brings Buzz; an Opportunity to Renovate and Renew Attracts Buyers

Article excerpt

The Ray White Caloundra inroom auction event was a hive of activity as 17 registered to bid for 14 Sutherland St, Dicky Beach.

"We've held auctions with more than 20 registered bidders on a number of occasions, but this campaign drew the most in recent times," principal Andrew Garland said.

The property held all the aces for strong buyer activity. A true renovator in a beachside location and anticipation of entry level buying. Put them together and it's becomes a triple treat.

Built approximately 30 years ago, the owners bought the four-bed highset brick when it was only about 12 months old. The fact it was presented in original condition drew plenty of buyers hoping to put their renovation skills to the test.

Campaign interest had been high and several wanted to secure beforehand but due to selling instructions, the property had to be offered in a transparent environment such as auction.

A start to bidding of $300,000 led the way for strong competition and many bids along the way until the gavel fell for $470,500 to local builders/renovators.

Bids roll in

WITH plenty of opportunity to add a personal touch, 27 Dunk Pl, Little Mountain, drew strong interest on and off the auction floor.

Marketed with Andy and Diane Camm of Live Realty, the near new four-bedroom home proved particularly attractive due to the private 2500sqm block.

Auctioneer Paul Cavanagh accepted a start to bidding of $330,000. In front of a good crowd including three registered bidders, the ball was set in motion. After 17 bids the property was passed in at $445,000 leading the way for continued negotiations towards a successful sale.
