Shaw sale for ven­dor

The Courier-Mail - Property - - Auction Roundup -

The ven­dors of 16 Shaw Street, Auchen­flower, had good rea­son to be con­fi­dent go­ing to auc­tion.

Their prop­erty had at­tracted six of­fers prior to the in rooms auc­tion at the In­dooroop­illy Golf Club on Au­gust 26.

Mar­ket­ing agent Dion Verzeletti of Ray White Toowong said there had been a mas­sive amount of in­ter­est in the three-bed­room, two-bath­room Queens­lan­der lead­ing up to the auc­tion.

’’There were 130 in­spec­tions over the four week cam­paign,’’ Mr Verzeletti said.

On the night, 10 reg­is­tered bid­ders fought it out with over 40 bids un­til it came down to the fi­nal two bid­ders hav­ing a dual to the end.

With an open­ing bid of $650,000, auc­tion­eer Sam Kelso man­aged the bids un­til the prop­erty sold for $765,000, an im­pres­sive $55,000 above the re­serve.

’’The crowd was ex­cited,’’ Mr Verzeletti said. ’’It was prob­a­bly the key auc­tion of the night with the amount of peo­ple there.

’’Auchen­flower is a fan­tas­tic area. The auc­tion at­tracted not just the buy­ers and bid­ders; three peo­ple had con­di­tional in­ter­est if by chance the house hadn’t sold un­der the ham­mer.’’
