Auctions ramp up after Australia Day break

AUCTIONS were thin on the ground last Saturday for Australia Day, with only a handful held throughout Queensland.

Reports are that of those, one sold prior and the other four were conducted.

Two were in Noosa and one of those sold under the hammer, a two-bedroom cottage on 810sq m being knocked down for $680,000. The other saw bidding and negotiations continuing.

There were four auctions on the Sunshine Coast last Friday. Again most were at Noosa with a two-bedroom townhouse selling at auction for $880,000, and bidding on two others.

The fourth, at Coolum Beach, saw the four-bedroom house with pool sell for $1.139m.

DEMAND FOR LAND

THIS week there is a lot more on offer, and perhaps none more exciting than a vacant block of land in Mooloolaba.

Ben Wilson of Code Property Group has been getting exceptional inquiry on the 913sq m block at 16 Parkway Dve that starts his day at 9.30am.

"It's gone ballistic,'' he said. "Being vacant land it's hard to tell who will turn up on the day.

"It's a unique find in terms of location and size. It's clear, level and 913sq m. Two minutes from the beaches at Alex and Mooloolaba, close to transport and schools.''

Ben also has a three-bedroom, two-bathroom house at 30 Helm Cres, Wurtulla, scheduled for 11am, that has attracted prior offers due to its location.

"It's a 653sq m corner block with pool and side gate for the boat or trailer. There is the option to renovate.''

SOMETHING RENOVATED, SOMETHING NEW

MITCH Rowe at Ray White Buderim has three properties up for auction on Saturday.

The three-bedroom, two-bathroom house at 9 Cape St, Birtinya, is first, at 10am.

"It's a lovely house, about three years old, and has that real wow factor,'' Mitch said, "low maintenance and with a big back yard ... you could get a pool in there.

"It's a trendy house and there's so much going on in the area with the hospital and new developments.''

A five-bedroom, three-bathroom house at 18 Vista Park Dv, Buderim, goes to auction at noon.

"They've done a great renovation and it's on 1225sq m on the high side of the street.''

THE PRICE WAS RIGHT

STEVEN Allen of Ray White Mooloolaba has sold 9 Stanton Ct, Buderim, ahead of Saturday's scheduled auction.

The three-bedroom, two-bathroom house with pool on 816sq m was in great condition, Steven said, and an off-street driveway provided extra parking.

He thought the property would go to a first home buyer but it was locals downsizing who had just sold their own property.

"It pays to look after your property,'' Steve said, "and just need to get the price right.

"The position was good, and there was no money to spend on it.

"The feedback was consistent during the campaign.''
