Purchase Worth a Bid; Brisbane-Based Investor Secures at the First Inspection

Article excerpt

THE AUCTION of 4/15 Barooga Cres, Mooloolaba, achieved exactly what James Goldsworthy set out to get - a good result.

Well presented and situated on the top floor of Glencara, 4/15 Barooga Cres boasts water views and convenience.

The small complex sits in one of the closest residential streets to Mooloolaba beach.

Introduced to the market just before the storm hit, one of the six registered proffered a start of $250,000.

Bidding continued and the unit was announced on the market at $320,000.

With nerves of steel, the successful buyer waited patiently and only showed his hand, post $300,000.

The gavel fell for $342,000 and a Brisbane investor became the new landlord.

"He had been eyeing the property for a few weeks and only inspected just before the auction got started," said James of Ray White Mooloolaba.

"We're finding that quite a bit lately, where inspections are well considered before enterting the property.

"Recently I sold a property following a phone video inspection on face-time. That was all the buyer needed before going to contract."

Moving forward

The wet weather didn't deter from the surrounds of 2 Panorama Ridge Rd, Buderim.

Vicki Stewart of Stewart Property welcomed onlookers and interested parties to the four-bed home in Panorama Ridge.

"It's such a beautiful allotment, the rain just added to the natural tranquillity of the property," Vicki said.

"While the home did not sell at auction and was passed in at $1m, we have a couple of buyers back in the country in the next couple of weeks and will continued to promote the property."
