Pigs can fly: City fringe Melbourne apartment sells for $150, 000

Written by realestateview.com.au in Auction on October 26, 2015

Victorian property seekers experienced a mammoth weekend of auctions as Melbourne had what was arguably the busiest weekend in real estate to date this year. REIV CEO, Enzo Raimondo, said that “the city has had a tremendous run of auction weekends in recent weeks – however this was easily the biggest auction weekend this year”. Despite such activity, the clearance rate declined from the weekend prior, seeing a drop from 73% to 71%.

Of the 1, 358 sold properties reported to the REIV, here are a few notable properties that caught our eye.


TOP HOME: 2-4 Mangarra Road, CANTERBURY, VIC

This Canterbury property sold under Marshall White was the most expensive property in Melbourne to sell over the weekend.

This weekend, the Real Estate Institute of Victoria (REIV) is expecting 550 auctions- the highest ever for any Melbourne Cup Day weekend, and more than double the number of auctions held last year. Buxton agent, Stefan Whiting, who operates in Brighton- Melbourne’s highest growth suburb, stated that “it continues to be an extremely busy period for us- the demand remains high as is sales activity- despite the upcoming long weekend”.
