Homes selling before auction in Brisbane’s mid-ring as search for fixer-uppers intensifies

first_img9 Ossian Street, Geebung, went under contract within days of listing.THE mid-ring has begun seeing homes sell before they can go under the hammer amid a rise in househunting for fixer-uppers within 15 to 20km of the Brisbane CBD. Five houses of the 82 listed to go to auction this weekend in the Queensland capital have been struck from this weekend’s bidding list after selling before they could go under the hammer, with one in particular raising eyebrows — in blue-collar Geebung. 75 Charlotte Street, Paddington Qld 4064Two of the homes that went under contract were in the inner circle, under 10km from the CBD — a three bedder at 153 Alexandra Road, Clayfield and a four bedder at 75 Charlotte Street, Paddington. Two others that sold before auction were in the high demand bayside — a five bedroom home at 37 Boswell Terrace, Wynnum, and a four bedroom home at 6 Ringara Street, Manly West.But it was the sale before auction of a three bedder at 9 Ossian Street, Geebung, that could be a good indication of what’s stirring in the market. 6 Ringara Street, Manly West Qld 4179 A spacious backyard and veranda at the Geebung home.

That one went within three or four days of listing and it had multiple offers. It went unconditional two weeks before the auction. It had six subsequent offers after it went under contract. There were just so many people (looking) the buyers said we don’t want to wait,” he said.Mr Licastro said the majority of househunters looking in the area were owner occupiers but it was investors that were keen to try and seal deals before auction. 153 Alexandra Road, Clayfield Qld 4011 The backyard of 9 Ossian Street, Geebung, and its classic Hills hoist.last_img
