Almost $1 million for this ‘renovator’s delight’

first_imgThe agent fielded eight written offers before the auction.On auction day, 15 registered bidders looked to make it theirs, but it was a Brisbane buyer who landed the home at the near $1-million-price tag.According to Mr Murray the buyer has experience with renovations.“We’ve got a happy buyer and a happy seller — but it exceeded expectations for sure.“I think there’s still a lot of growth. I think we’re just at the point where the pin is about to drop and were about to see a lot more of these big sales — especially in unrenovated, well positioned, well marketed property.”Mr Murray says although the sale was to a local purchaser, interstate interest in Brisbane is growing.“People coming up from the southern states looking to buy something that close to the city on a 405sq m for under a million dollars is unheard of down there, whereas they come up here and you could almost buy two for the price of one.” This Brisbane ‘renovator’s delight’ has sold at auction for $970,000.Buyers are fronting up big dollars for fixer-upper homes in some of Brisbane’s best suburbs — and it could be just the beginning if the $970,000 sale of 10 Bernhard St, Paddington is any indication. The agent believes demand for unrenovated property in Paddington is only just ramping up.center_img 10 Bernhard St Paddington will require some work to unearth its full potential.The three-bedroom, one-bathroom renovator’s delight sits on an elevated 405sq m allotment close to cool cafe’s and boutique retail, but it will take quite a bit of work to unearth a grand residence from the modest home.While at this stage the property only has ‘city glimpses’, there is potential to take things up a notch, according to Andrew Murray, sales agent at Ray White Paddington.Mr Murray said he was able to leverage off previous selling campaigns and brings an extraordinary level of competition to Bernhard St.“I had a couple of properties recently that I sold — unrenovated cottages in Paddington.”More from newsMould, age, not enough to stop 17 bidders fighting for this home5 hours agoBuyers ‘crazy’ not to take govt freebies, says 28-yr-old investor5 hours agoMr Murray said the property had a great sales campaign with 93 groups at open homes, 25 private inspections and eight written offers before auction.“Given the amount of work we put in, it didn’t surprise me,” he said.last_img read more

Joshua wants Pulev fight in UK

first_imgRelatedPosts Tyson Fury to Anthony Joshua: Don’t risk fighting Usyk Anthony Joshua, Okolie plot world title double Anthony Joshua wants Tyson Fury, Wilder fight Anthony Joshua will “almost certainly” defend his world heavyweight titles against Kubrat Pulev in Britain, says promoter Eddie Hearn. Britain’s unified champion has been granted more time for talks with Bulgarian Pulev, his IBF mandatory challenger, but the Matchroom Boxing boss is confident that terms will be agreed within a fortnight. Tottenham Hotspur Stadium and The Emirates, home of Arsenal FC, are on the list of possible locations in the UK, with a potential date in May or June. Almost certainly that will be AJ’s next fight and almost certainly in the UK. “It’s close and if it was proving difficult to make, we would go into purse bids now at this stage, or they would order it,” Hearn told Sky Sports. “We spoke to the camps and they basically said we need another two weeks and we’ll have it finalised. “Almost certainly that will be AJ’s next fight and almost certainly in the UK. “The main issue we have is Pulev wants to make as much money for that fight as he can. There isn’t as much money for that fight in the UK as there is elsewhere, but AJ has given me the instruction that I boxed in New York, I boxed in Saudi, I would like to do this one in the UK. “Spurs, Emirates, Cardiff, Twickenham, everywhere is in play, but most likely end of May, early June. Joshua-Pulev in the UK.”Tags: Anthony JoshuaEddie HearnKubrat PulevUKlast_img read more
