WHEN the owners of 94 Persimmon Drive, Peregian Beach, were thinking of selling they attended the Tom Offermann Gala Auction Event at help decide on who to list the property with. They couldn't believe their luck at winning the lucky door prize of a weekend for two in Hastings Street. Yet more was to come.
Cameron Urquhart and Milan Markanovic were chosen to market the two-level, five-bedroom home with beautiful ocean views. It was built by the vendors in 2005 and they held a lot of attachment to it.
Immaculately presented, the home attracted a lot of inspections and not a negative comment. After three inspections a young Victorian family decided is suited their needs perfectly and so it sold sub-$1m.
Cameron said the sellers have now become very good clients and he will be looking for a purchase for them.
"They are downsizing now that family have grown up but will definitely be staying in the area.
"They are very happy that a young family will be living in the home."
"WE are seeing strong enquiry right across the board," Select Noosa principal Greg Smith reports, "with positive signs from the buying public.
"In the space of six days, we saw sales of just under $3million take place."
And Greg is looking for a similar result when he takes 63-65 Ward St, Tewantin, to auction this Saturday at 11am.
The agent's sound understanding of buyers' needs and ability to maintain good communication led to a solid and swift result for the sellers of 9 Roberts Drive, Cooroy who initially planned to auction their property at the July 18 In Rooms Event through David Lafferty of hinternoosa.com.au in conjunction with Jason Andrew Auctioneers.
During the pre-marketing phase of preparing the property for sale, David was working with a buyer whose needs he could not satisfy with properties he had available. After a short discussion with the sellers, David introduced the buyer to the homestead, which was just less than two acres, as it fitted his criteria and was possibly in his price range.
The result was that the buyer made an offer prior to the auction process starting. The sellers gave consensus and moved on to their new home in Wangaratta, NSW one month prior to the proposed auction date.
David Lafferty credits the auction process with the sale as it showed the buyer that the sellers were genuine about moving forwards and the seller had to make a compelling and fair offer to halt the auction process. Smiles all round from a happy buyer and happy sellers as their thank you note testifies.
"Congratulations to David Lafferty for recognising the special needs of both a disarming buyer and the vendors as well," the note reads. "Jeff and I say "thank you" sincerely for looking after us so well and we wish you more excellent auction results in the future. Your appreciative clients, Jeff and Heather Renkin."
