A gorgeous property in the amazing location and sought after address of Earnslaw Terrace sold for $750,000 over CV at auction on the 29th April.
Purchased as an older home by a lovely long term local 11 years ago from a previous Harcourts Queenstown agent, now manager of our Dunedin office, this local chose to renovate and extend the property as a home and income. The property gained visitor accommodation consent for the flat built below whilst the main house sat on top taking in those stunning Lake Wakatipu views.
The real selling point for this property was the dream location, and the configuration of the property which provides the opportunity to owner occupy and generate some income from the flat below the main house.
Taken to market on the 29th April, the 25 day campaign commenced using proven Harcourts digital marketing, systems and processes right from the start. The property had 12 interested parties come through the three open homes that were conducted over various weekends and many took up the opportunity of a private viewing. In addition to the 8 parties, 27 enquiries came through directly to the selling agents as a result of the offerings available in the Harcourts digital suite.
Come auction day on the 29th April, there were 6 registered bidders with 2 in the room and 4 on the phone and watching the auction through our Harcourts live stream. The bidding started off strong at $1.6 million and saw 29 non-stop bids in total between the parties.
Such a premium and exceptional result was achieved by consistently taking a team approach to selling real estate. The entire Harcourts Queenstown team worked hard with potential buyers, 2 of the registered bidders came from other Harcourts Queenstown sales consultants. In fact, the successful buyer was a contact of one of our Harcourts Queenstown agents.
