IT might be get­ting cold out­side but auc­tions are still run­ning hot on the Gold Coast.

The team at Pro­fes­sion­als John Hen­der­son Real Es­tate are tak­ing more than 20 prop­er­ties to auc­tion on Tues­day, Au­gust 8, for their win­ter auc­tion event, “Au­gust Auc­tion Spec­tac­u­lar”.

Beach­side man­sions, river­front homes, apart­ments with ocean views and town­houses from Surfers Par­adise to Burleigh Heads will be of­fered to the mar­ket.

Among the big list of prop­er­ties is a Mer­maid Beach house within arm’s reach of the beach at 11 Seashell Ave.

Agent Luke Hen­der­son said the home of­fered ocean glimpses and sea­side lux­ury.

“The show­piece of the home is the large liv­ing and din­ing ar­eas, which con­nect through bi-fold doors to the un­der­cover en­ter­tain­ing area over­look­ing a sparkling pool,’’ he said.

CoreLogic data re­vealed the Gold Coast was the busiest non-cap­i­tal city re­gion last week­end, with 78 homes go­ing to auc­tion.

Luke Hen­der­son said the win­ter auc­tion event was in­spired by the agency’s sum­mer auc­tion event where more than $15 mil­lion changed hands in front of a crowd of 250 peo­ple in Jan­uary.

John Hen­der­son Pro­fes­sion­als Mer­maid Beach prin­ci­pal An­drew Hen­der­son said it was still very much a seller’s mar­ket and auc­tions were ideal for ven­dors.

“There is still strong de­mand from buy­ers look­ing to up­grade to prop­er­ties in the Mer­maid Beach and the Mi­ami area,’’ he said.

“The clear ma­jor­ity are Gold Coast or Bris­bane buy­ers, but on the sup­ply side there is lim­ited avail­abil­ity of good qual­ity homes and apart­ments.”

Mr An­drew Hen­der­son said the Au­gust 8 event at Mer­maid Beach Bowls Club would fea­ture prop­er­ties to suit every­one. He said his agents were cur­rently reg­is­ter­ing bid­ders.

11 Seashell Ave, Mer­maid Beach, is go­ing to auc­tion on Au­gust 5.
