Watch the best Victorian auctions and follow the results live this Saturday with the new auction blog from Herald Sun Real Estate.
Love auctions but can’t go out to watch this weekend due to lockdown?
Fear not – the Herald Sun has you covered with our all new live auction blog which launches this Saturday from 10am.
Grab your uggies, sit back on the couch, and log in to see our pick of three houses under the hammer.
This week we will be broadcasting from the Geelong region, where on-site auctions have been given the green light – as well as highlighting some of Melbourne’s best sellers with ongoing updates.
The first house to be won will be a period wooden plank chalet in 24 Maitland Street, Geelong West, near the famous cafe street Pakington St.
McGrath Geelong’s agent David Cortous expects several bidders to raise their hands for the elegant three-bedroom house, which has a large open-plan living space and is asking for between $ 900,000 and $ 950,000.
The 1,400 m² property with swimming pool sells for between $ 1.82 and $ 2 million.
Meanwhile, Hodges Geelong agent Carl Hammond will host the on-site and online auctions for 7 Brownbill Street, Geelong, which has an asking price of $ 1.2 million.
Strong competition is expected for the renovated Edwardian, which has four bedrooms and is a stone’s throw from the CBD and the waterfront.
Earlier this week, Acting Prime Minister James Merlino announced Melbourne to remain in coronavirus lockdown for seven more days.
And while the extension is expected to hamper the city’s auctions, Realestate.com.au chief economist Cameron Kusher said the strong fall sales had “made up for lost time.”
He said he expected demand to slow down slightly during the winter months and that “the next wave of buyers won’t be as big and we’ll see some of the heat continue to ease.”
