Ray White Auction Results

Last Sunday, Ray White had a large scale auction at a Valley hotel, called an Urban Living Auction. There were a number of unique and prestige apartments and houses offered for sale. The results for the sellers were not good. More than 50 propeties were listed for auction, with only 17 selling on auction day (at the auction or shortly after).

"Ray White South Brisbane principal Dean Yesberg said 17 out of 54 properties sold on the day. “We had a large number of buyers and a positive response but the number of sales was down on previous years,” Mr Yesberg said. “Certainly the message we got out of the day is that owners need to bring their expectations back into line with the marketplace and what buyers are prepared to pay. People still want to buy but recent interest rate rises and current uncertainty in the world economy is starting to make people nervous. “It was a successful day but it was a tough day at the office.” Despite the lower than average number of sales on the day, Mr Yesberg expected more properties to be sold over the next week.
