Under the Ray White hammer this Saturday

THE Easter bunny has delivered the eggs and hopped off into the distance, which means auction volumes are well up on last weekend’s subdued numbers.

The REIV is expecting around 770 auctions to occur across 311 Victorian suburbs this week, with a beautiful double-storey period property available to buy under the hammer through Ray White Chelsea at 11am, Saturday.

Restored, renovated and extended, the five-bedroom home at 1 Broadway, Bonbeach (above) is on the market with Ray White Chelsea’s Janine Foy.

“We’ve had a great level of enquiry,” Ms Foy said.

“Interest has been mainly from families, both local and also from outside of the area, who are drawn to the lifestyle.”

Ms Foy said the small bayside suburb, 31kms southeast of Melbourne’s CBD, is growing in popularity.

“The beaches are stunning, there are great schools and there’s just so much to offer here,” she said.

“Buyers are becoming more aware of the area in the last two years, so it’s certainly becoming a hot spot.”

Ms Foy has listed 1 Broadway, Bonbeach to go to auction with a price guide of $1.180 million to $1.295 million.

Another beachside property going under the hammer this Saturday morning is 17 James St at North Beach, a coastal suburb of Perth.

The 928sq m block (above), with 20m frontage, offers a number of possibilities for interested parties.

A proposed green title subdivision has been conditionally approved by the WAPC which would allow two 464sq m lots, each with 10m frontage and potential ocean views.

Ray White Dalkeith Claremont director Vivien Yap is responsible for the marketing campaign of 17 James St, North Beach.

Sticking with the sandy auction locations, a Gold Coast gem will also be available to buy at auction this Saturday morning.

The holiday home at 23 Hill Ave, Burleigh Heads (above) has been owned by the same family since 1992.

Ray White Mermaid Beach elite agent Troy Dowker said the property currently comprised of two self-contained, income producing flats over two levels with basement car parking and extensive storage on 806sq m of land.

“A buyer could retain and utilise the existing residence or redevelop with luxury boutique apartments, villas or their desired home of choice,” he said.

“The large land holding is very attractive to developers with the current zoning that could see three levels built above street level.”

Walk from 23 Hill Ave to some of the Gold Coast’s best beaches, coolest cafes, and stacks of family-friendly areas including local markets, picnic spots along the beachfront promenade, and a beautiful national park.
