Have you seen the latest Market Update from Fletchers Whitehorse?
April 13th 2014
The REIV recorded a clearance rate of 70% over the weekend compared to 68% on the same weekend last year. Fletchers performed well under the hammer, achieving a success rate of 79%.
The REIV notes that although we have experienced higher auction numbers this year, there are signs that the clearance rates are trending lower. The median price increase in the March quarter was 3.7%, indicating a more sustainable level of growth in the market.
Buyers were out in force over the weekend, with many auctions attracting high numbers of bidders. Maurie Walters and Jason Salan experienced some competitive bidding at the auction of 3 Eden Court in Doncaster. Five parties bid to secure the three bedroom two bathroom home, eager not to miss this fantastic opportunity. The home sold for $818,000, a pleasing result for all.
Another great sale for the day was the unique four bedroom two bathroom home at 1 Carrigal Street in Balwyn. This property also enticed five parties to bid in the hope of securing the home which offers light and bright living set over two levels. In a great result for Mark and Rob Fletcher, their vendors and the purchasers, the home sold for $1.19 million.
Whitehorse Directors Robert Sheahan and Ben Williams had another thriving day under the hammer, which included the sales of 2/275 Springfield Road in Nunawading. Featuring three bedrooms and two bathrooms, the sophisticated two storey town residence offers a generous floorplan with extra large living and dining. In what seems to be a running theme for the day, this property also had five bidding parties, eventually selling for $675,000.
Our Eltham office also experienced a successful day under the hammer, including the sale of the three bedroom, two bathroom home at 91 Plenty Lane in Greensborough. The beautifully renovated home features open plan kitchen/dining zone, stylish kitchen and great undercover alfresco deck. A fantastic result for agents Steve Thomson and Prue Wittison, their vendors and the purchasers, the home sold for $570,000.
Ric Justice also from the Eltham office experienced another pleasing sale of the three bedroom, two bathroom home at 39 Silver Wattle Street in Yallambie. Immaculately presented the home is set in a picturesque streetscape, offering something for everyone. The property sold for $651,500.
For all of Fletchers recent sales, visit our award-winning website.
The upcoming auction weekend will be very quiet due to the Easter holiday break. The REIV is expecting 90 auctions to be called.
Fletchers Yarra Ranges hosted the grand opening of their three new offices last Friday. The team did a fantastic job of organising the night, which was enjoyed by children and adult alike. We are looking forward to the exciting times ahead with the expansion of our team.
We hope that you all have a safe and relaxing Easter!
Enjoy the week!

Designed with a distinguished grace, this 2 level home provides luxurious proportions and a sophisticated lifestyle.
A large corner site provides the luxury of space without imposing on privacy; quality brush fencing and well established trees seclude the home from passersby yet still allows an extra wide driveway to park up to six vehicles within the boundary of the plot (2 within the double garage). Vast grassed yard space plus secluded courtyard areas offer private entertaining space while inside a beautiful sense of light and space is afforded by huge box windows (double glazed and some up to 3.5m wide). Multiple corner set triple stacking doors allow an easy flow between indoors and alfresco rooms on both levels, while tall ceilings also add to abundant light that fills the clean lined, crisp white interior. A touch of the exotic is added by antique Asian gateways within the sculptural gardens and various feature light fittings; an element of uniqueness.
A large open plan space upstairs forms the core living zone where a large and quality fitted galley kitchen connects to a semi enclosed balcony. Stacking doors completely eliminate walls between the dining, lounge and alfresco area extending living space even further. These stacking doors are fitted with “E Glass” for highly rated insulation and solar control. A long Caesarstone island and wall set benches continue on through the butler’s pantry (concealing the fridge), while frosted glass windows and decorative metallic tiles form the splashback for a distinctive touch above the commercial sized upright cooker. A grand and extensive master suite is also on the top level where double entry doors allow a connection with the living zone. A large dressing room is well fitted while the ensuite affords a private toilet, huge shower and double floating vanity with Caesarstone top.
Formal entrance to the home (via Golf Links Road) houses the beautifully polished solid timber stair case and is lined with book shelving, a great spot for either a library or study. This room forms the link between the 2 segregated areas; a doorway can be locked and concealed, thus providing direct entry to upstairs without requiring access to the remainder of the ground floor.
Downstairs accommodation consists of 3 bedrooms all generously sized with 2 featuring dual BIR’s and the third a single. A central bathroom and combined laundry/kitchenette are adjacent offering access to rear courtyard space. Secondary kitchen facilities create easy outdoor catering to the lower alfresco deck plus the added convenience of self-contained accommodation. Mimicking the upstairs layout stack sliding doors connect the large living space and kitchenette with an alfresco room which acts as the second entrance to the home.
Practical luxuries within the property include immense storage (including under stair cavity suitable as cellar space), ducted vacuuming, zoned ducted heating & cooling, upstairs powder room, security system and immense secure car parking.
Enjoying the perfect central location for both living and holidaying in this idyllic coastal village, the clever design can be segregated for dual occupancy (perfect for holiday rental, or families with adult children or regular guests), yet still flows effortlessly for easy family living.
