Sub­ur­ban lo­cale the draw­card


A YOUNG cou­ple from For­ti­tude Val­ley bought a three-bed­room one-bath­room Coor­pa­roo prop­erty un­der the ham­mer for $725,000.

The on-site auc­tion at 48 Hip­wood Ave at­tracted about 30 peo­ple and two reg­is­tered bid­ders.

Auc­tion­eer Haes­ley Cush took an open­ing bid of $600,000 from the floor be­fore the sale priced was reached.

Mar­ket­ing agent Kay Smith from Ray White Coor­pa­roo said the prop­erty was on a huge 905sq m block in a qual­ity lo­ca­tion with great po­ten­tial.

“A great turnout from lo­cal fam­i­lies on auc­tion day gave the new own­ers the chance to meet their new neigh­bours,” she said.

“The ven­dors were thrilled to sell un­der the ham­mer.”

She said the buy­ers were look­ing to move from the in­ner city and set­tle in the sub­urbs.

The Queens­lan­der boasts a mod­ern kitchen with gran­ite bench­tops, Euro ap­pli­ances, Miele dish­washer and a Qa­sair range­hood.

A sep­a­rate lounge and din­ing area has pol­ished tim­ber floors while other prop­erty fea­tures in­clude so­lar pan­els and sin­gle-car garage.
