What a day!
What a turnout!
What great results!
Professionals Arthur Johnston Snowball conducted two auctions on Saturday 7th June which attracted big crowds and plenty of excitement!
The first auction at 11am at 27 Seawolf Rd, Robinson attracted more than 100 people with cars lined up the full length of the road. With perfect weather and spectacular harbour and City views, this Estate Auction looked like it would attract spirited bidding. From 9 registered bidders, 6 participants fought it out with the property selling comfortably above the reserve price some 35 bids later at $670,000.
The successful buyers, a local farming couple, intend to build their dream retirement home on the 2659sqm some time in the future.
At 1pm the Professionals Albany team commenced their second auction for the day in from of a crowd of more than 50 people at a vacant block of land at 49 Barry Court, Collingwood Park. With four registered bidders and plenty of caffeine thanks to Chris at Quick Shot Coffee, this was also shaping up to be a terrific auction. Bidding was advertised to start at $200,000 and it moved on quickly from there. Two buyers keen to secure this outstanding piece of land drove the price up to $260,000 where, again, it sold under the hammer. The successful couple were absolutely delighted with their purchase. The Sellers were very happy with the sale – having had the property on the market for quite some time before deciding to go to auction following the advice of their agent, Chelsea McIntyre.
“I was delighted with the turnout to both auctions, and obviously the results” said Auctioneer and Professionals Sales Manager, Rob Mason “It is terrific to see buyers and sellers in Albany embracing auction – it is the most transparent way to buy property, and can potentially generate excellent results for sellers – such as we saw last Saturday. The atmosphere was exciting, and the training we have undertaken as a team ensured the smooth and successful running of both auctions.”
