This week sees figures in keeping with those found throughout April. It is very similar to last week, only without the boost of a high selling price.
97 auctions were scheduled, of which 65 results are available, closely resembling the 104 auctions scheduled and 64 available from last week.
The 41 properties sold have allowed the clearance rate to creep up 2% from last week’s 61% to 63%, in keeping with the majority of April’s results.
A $635,946 average selling price does not touch the $700,000-plus figures of the past two weeks, but supersedes the low $600,000 numbers seen elsewhere throughout April. This small accolade it owes in part to four properties which exceeded $1 million selling prices, though not by wide margins.
Third-highest of these is 4 Cootra Avenue, in Fullarton, Harris Real Estate’s Kris Casey and Todd Penrose selling the home for $1,120,000.
Conveniently situated in Glenunga International High and Highgate Primary Schools zones, this Tudor sports Robyn Frost-designed gardens and authentic Jarrah floorboards – as well eccentricities including leadlight windows, elaborate decorative ceilings and unique, evocative wallpapers.
One of Adelaide’s most successful agents, Kris Casey spoke to SA Real Estate News last year on her approach to real estate, which has delivered her to sales such as these.
32 Salisbury Crescent, in Colonel Light Gardens, sold for $1,125,000, Gabrielle and Brian Wellington of Ray White representing the home.
The front yard entices, with 25 metre frontage containing a grand display of stained glass, picturesque gardens and trees, and full length verandah.
At the back, a vibrant Alfresco area features a pergola ensnared in vines and greenery. In between is 1200 square metres that combines slick modernity with antique heritage and lucious green.
The most profitable sale of the week is 15 Pridmore Road, Glen Osmond, for which Grant Mills of Toop&Toop Real Estate attained a selling price of $1,170,000.
Four bedrooms, a grand foyer, functional feature fireplace, contemporary Jag kitchen, gardens designed by Peter Stubbs, excellent location – these features combine to form an exemplary home which earns its immense price-tag.
This week has been one that looked much like those before, steady but unexceptional, nothing to complain about, but not thrilling either.
