Going the extra mile

Kate Demsey of Ray White Hastings Street has been working with interstate sellers in marketing 6/161-163 Gympie Tce, Noosaville.
Kate Demsey of Ray White Hastings Street has been working with interstate sellers in marketing 6/161-163 Gympie Tce, Noosaville.

Living in different states and requiring an agent to go the extra mile with little fuss or stress, Kate Demsey of Ray White Hastings Street was the ideal candidate.

"The property has been a delight to market, with the sellers organising fresh flowers to adorn the coffee table each week for open homes," Kate reported. "When you walk into the villa you can't help but feel the calm, loving ambience, it's such an easy place to be and I've overheard so many buyers remarking that they could definitely see themselves here.

"But then,, who wouldn't want to live across the road from one of Australia's most beautiful waterways? You can fish, walk along the river in the mornings and evenings, barbecue, dine at the various restaurants on offer, grab the paper and sit by the river. It truly is a lifestyle offering," Kate enthused.

Purchased off the plan in 2003, this is the first time the property has been offered for sale. And as it is now a deceased estate, with the family having no need for the property, it's simply a process to finalise the estate.

Kate and the executors discussed the different methods of sale, the pros and cons of both and the family decided to go straight to auction: to achieve a result is their light at the end of the tunnel.

"Auction is the ideal choice in this situation," Kate stated. "The process will give us a captive audience of active buyers and the sellers have the fairest and most equitable way to dissolve the asset."

Open homes have been very popular with some inquiry Brisbane and interstate. This property presents as new and the quality of fixtures and fittings have stood the test of time.

Originally built as luxury free-standing villas, it provides the ideal downsize property, with security and low maintenance making it easy to lock up and leave.

Spacious and pet friendly make this a real winner for those who don't wish to compromise on lifestyle. Ray White auctioneer Mark Frater will present the three bedroom villa on site tomorrow, April 7 at 1pm.

 

Asking the question

WHEN you've had 69 inspections and four offers throughout the auction campaign, you don't take the money and run - you go through to auction day and see what your property is worth.

Irene Brown of Green Realty initially listed 1/106 Noosa Pde at a price but when the response was so fantastic, she wisely suggested to the owners of three years that this was well and truly worth having the auctioneer ask the question, "what will you pay?".

"Buyer interest has come from all over the place," Irene said. "Including Melbourne, Sydney and country areas of our southern states.

"Fully renovated and absolute waterfront, it's hard to beat. The Noosa Heads townhouse was completely gutted, so now you walk into an open, spacious, fresh residence."

Also hard to beat are the body corporate fees at $1200 a year. And being a small complex of four, it's always going to be popular. Brisbane Auctioneer Adrian Seifford is sure to have a great crowd Tuesday, April 10 on site at 10am.

 

Wonderful response

KAREN Bester and Sam Plummer of Dowling & Neylan have enjoyed a wonderful response from promotion of 19 Wyona Dr, Noosa Heads.

"It's unique, exceptionally private, north facing and renovated to a very high standard," Karen told me, when she had closed the door after welcoming 16 groups to last Saturday's open home.

While really a three bedroom home, it is currently set up as two bedrooms and two offices and would ideally suit a corporate couple, as it isn't a huge residence but very modern.

Located in an elevated position in a very good street, within walking distance to the Junction, the property was taken straight to auction, as the sellers were motivated to move on and wished to expedite the selling process.

Auctioneer Michael Hughes will be asking for an opening bid at the property Saturday, April 14 at 1pm.

 

Ultra-comfortable lifestyle

BOUTIQUE apartment 2/55 Elizabeth St, Noosaville will be offered at auction next Saturday, following promotion with David Conolly and Andrew McDonald of Century 21, of Conolly Hay Group.

The complex was built by local developer Keith Whitely, of Javaka Pty Ltd, about three years ago as two apartments to on-sell.

Unit 2 is a full floor apartment, with roof terrace, including private pool. It was originally listed for sale at $1.7million. The other apartment on the first level sold about a year ago, for less than $1m.

"Presented as new, this luxury elegant residence would be perfect for those looking to downsize but retain a spacious, ultra-comfortable lifestyle," David said.

"We have had offers throughout the campaign and while they were rejected, the owner is determined to sell on auction day when there will be opportunity to buy this three bedroom, two bathroom, two car lockup property for a figure even with an eight in front."

Auctioneer Justin Bond will present the property on site April 14 at 2pm.

 

Suit wide range of buyers

DANNY Van Heusden of Elders Noosa will start the auction campaign of 43 Furness Dr, Tewantin, today,with an open home from 12.15 to 1pm. The four bedroom, two bathroom, double lockup garage home, with a great pool area, offers privacy and has been well maintained.

While the owners chose to go straight into an auction campaign to allow them to relocate, to be closer to grandchildren in the Blue Mountains area (west of Sydney), Danny told me the home would suit a wide range of buyers and it's well worth an inspection before auction day on May 1.
