Strong sales results were seen at Charles L King and Co First National’s multi-auction last Saturday, according to managing director Gary Wood. Bidders attended in droves, with seven properties sold under the hammer from 10 auctions. Another was sold after auction. Mr Wood said the results showed the general real estate market in Echuca-moama was strong in patches. Victoria’s clearance rates at auctions in the past five months have been running at about 58 per cent, but the Echuca Charles L King and Co First National firm auction results had been running at 93 per cent, which was slightly higher than last year, Mr Wood said.
