Bigger land blocks drive fierce competition at auction

first_img53 Lloyd Street, Camp Hill, had a number of pre-registered buyers prior to auction day.Competition was always going to be fierce at the auction of 53 Lloyd Street, Camp Hill yesterday, with 11 of the 13 bidders pre-registered for the event.But rather than the four-bedroom character home with period features being the main attraction, selling agent Joanna Gianniotis of Place Bulimba said it was the large block of land that had attracted all the attention.Larger blocks in coveted areas such as Camp Hill are hot property at the moment with an abundance of buyers looking for that extra bit of space, in a safe and secure suburb. Buyer were attracted to the property’s large 810 sqm block.With an early 9am start, the group of predominantly local buyers set the bidding off for auctioneer Paul Curtain at $1 million, with the price rising rapidly, before slowing at about $1.3 million. It soon withered to just two active groups before the hammer fell at $1.42 million. The property sold to a young couple with a toddler who were looking for a large family home, after recently moving to Brisbane from Melbourne.Having submitted an unconditional offer before the auction, which was unsuccessful, Ms Gianniotis said the couple were determined not to lose out on the day.She said it was a great result and the fact that the house sold over reserve was indicative that buyers’ attention had definitely switched back to bigger blocks. The four-bedroom property is the perfect family homes and has plenty of Queenslander character.“There are a lot of people looking for properties like Lloyd Street, but it’s more about what they are willing to pay for the land rather than the house,” she said. “I have about 12 buyers on my books that are unconditional, looking to purchase a family home on a large block, so if you’re selling, it’s a good position to be in. The problem is a lack of supply.” More from newsParks and wildlife the new lust-haves post coronavirus8 hours agoNoosa’s best beachfront penthouse is about to hit the market8 hours agoThis deceased estate pre-war house at 16 Wride St, Woolowin, exceeded expectations by selling well over the anticipated auction price.The Brisbane auction market continues to be buoyant through September with clearance rates above 60 per cent, 10 per cent higher than last month. Across the river at 16 Wride Street, Woolowin, the action was fast and furious for Ray White auctioneer Haesley Cush, with bids from 12 active groups failing to pause for breath until the hammer fell at $785,000 for the pre-war home. Selling agent Nick Mogridge said he had never seen the momentum at an auction move so fast. “The bids just kept on going and going, but it was all over in about 20 minutes,” he said.The deceased estate went to a Brisbane couple looking to restore the pre-war home to its former glory. Mr Mogridge said it was an amazing result, that no one expected.“We thought it would go for the high $600,000s but to reach $785,000 was amazing.”He believed the property’s location was the main driver. “Woolowin is a little hidden gem, the little sister to Clayfield. The house is in a great street and is the perfect spot for a first-time buyer, or young homebuyer.”last_img read more


Kiffin remains mum on starting quarterback

first_imgREUNITED AGAINFor the second straight season, Kiffin will face off against his former colleague in Hawai’i head coach Norm Chow. Kiffin expects much of the same from the Chow-led Hawai’i offense.“I’m sure they’ll take a lot of chances, just like they did last year,” Kiffin said. “They’ll be excited to play, just like everyone is in their opener. It sounds like their quarterback has been doing a good job in scrimmages. I’m sure they’ll pressure us with a lot of new players. I expect them to be very aggressive.”In last year’s meeting between the two teams, the Trojans scored early and often en route to a 49-10 victory, with the first touchdown coming on USC’s first offensive snap. ALL BUSINESSThough the Trojans are headed for exotic Hawaii, Kiffin has stressed that luaus and beach days will not be on the agenda for his players.“We’ve spent a lot of time with our coaches making sure they stay on top with their position groups,” Kiffin said. “This is a business trip. Our players understand that this really isn’t a vacation for them.” With the team’s final practice before its season opener in the books, USC head coach Lane Kiffin was asked a question that has dogged him throughout the entire preseason:Do you know who will start at quarterback?Up to this point, the answer to that question had always been no. But Kiffin changed his tune on Tuesday.“Yup,” Kiffin said.True to form, though, he refused to reveal the decision to the media on hand.“I can’t tell you [which quarterback will start],” Kiffin said. “I’m not gonna tell you the end of the movie before you go to the movie. You’re just gonna have to watch.”Kiffin revealed scarce details about USC’s roster or starting lineup decision’s for Thursday’s game against Hawai’i, but did announce that redshirt junior Josh Shaw and freshman Su’a Cravens will start at free and strong safety, respectively.  Kiffin refused to disclose whether or not redshirt junior strong safety Dion Bailey was injured or simply beat out by the former five-star recruit.center_img Follow Nick Selbe on Twitter @NickSelbelast_img read more
