Property Description – Title Reference: CT 5079/ 302

The 1975 built single storey house is of a Conventional Style It is ~110 Sqm in size of rendered brick/ veneer construction. It has a block size of 578 Sqm with an enclosed backyard and front yard open to the street, on the high side of the road. It has 3 bedrooms, 1 bathroom and 2 living areas. There is parking for 2-4 vehicles in the garage/ workshop and double carport. There is also an outdoor entertaining area covered by a freestanding pergola.

As the land size is 578 SqM it is unlikely Tea Tree Gully Council will allow sub-division as their policy is a minimum size of 300 SqM per Block. A prospective purchaser could apply of course.

The property is in reasonable condition for its age.
The property is typical of 3 bedroom houses in the area.
It has 2 living rooms with an updated kitchen.
It has local shops and schools within walking distance.
Recreation, playgrounds and such are all within walking distance.
Public transport, major shopping, schools, hospital are all close by.

The home is in need of being painted.
Paths and paving have lifted and require fixing.
Guttering and some downpipes need replacing.
The pergola is at the end of its usable life and will need to be replaced.

Appraisal Value – Market Worth

Given the state of the market AND
If the Property Was in Good Condition…
We would estimate a buyer would consider a Residential Property Investment range from $315,000 to $345,000

As there are a number of works required by the successful purchaser, it depends on how much they consider will be needed to effect repairs.

This could range from $15,000 to $40,000.

Recommended Advertising Range

For Private Treaty we recommend a 10% Price Range proposal of $310,000 to $340,000 to encourage negotiation, ensuring buyers make multiple offers sooner, therefore working buyers against each other. If a Single Fixed Price is required we recommend an asking price be set at say $349,950 allowing for deductions to be made for Repair Costs.

Professional Fee – GST Inclusive

Our Professional Fee for service is 2.5% of selling price. Advertising and associated marketing costs for preparations and open inspections is valued at $2495 An administration charge is $995 If Auction preferred – Auctioneers cost is $660 – Our Auctioneer is a State and National Title Holder.

Recommendations Prior to Marketing

The home has some appeal, given its features and location. The drawback, of course, is the cracking in the front room, lifting of pavers and concrete paths and such. Whether this is a result of soil movement, drainage,  trees or otherwise is unknown.

These factors will impact whether buyers make an offer and if they do whether they cool off after a building inspection.

1. We recommend getting a Building Inspector who can assess the situation and make some estimate of repair costs.

This information will assist in setting the final asking price. Pricing could either be set higher to allow discounting of repair costs in an offer, or set pricing for an as-is basis where a likely price of an undamaged home is set then deducting costs and ask a lower price.

BPI – Building and Property Inspections on 1800609065 stated they could Inspect and give a general idea of repair costs. Their Fee is  $390 inclusive of GST. I believe their fee is competitive.

2. Improve the street-scape by getting a gardener to tidy up the front yard by trimming plants and bushes and adding a mulch base to garden beds.

This will add greatly to the visual appeal.

3. Get quotes for clean up, minor fixes and repairs throughout.

It is worth spending $3,000 – $5,000 on preparation costs.

It will likely return a dollar on dollar amount but more importantly will bring in more buyers to negotiate with.


There is none.

Household Structure

This area has a mix of Household Types. Couple with children makes up 46.4% of Households, whereas Lone households and Childless couples make up 37.8%. The rest is made up of Single parent 15.1% and Other. Of the total property mix, the Ownership mix is almost ~90: 10 between ‘Renters’ and those who ‘Own outright’ or are ‘Purchasing’.
Why is this important? Because Private Rental is small/fairly large with a percentage being Government Housing. That being said, whilst Investors and Developers form a smaller part of the buying demographic an opportunity to buy in this situation does not present itself very often. It is also increasingly difficult to find a block of a decent size for those who have a family.
We believe it will have appeal to a number of groups.

Target Market

The likely purchaser will be a First or Second Homebuyer. These purchasers will require a Subject to Sale and/ or Subject to Finance clause. This excludes them from bidding at Auction.

Marketing Strategies

In South Australia, there are 3 allowable ways of advertising price

  1. No Price
  2. Fixed Price or
  3. Price Range of up to 10%.

The method most often used is Private Treaty accounting for 90-95% of sales. Auction accounts for 5-10% of sales and currently averages a Conversion Rate of around 65% ±  for Pre-Auction Sales and At the fall of the hammer. However, when considering post-auction sales this improves significantly.

Our Sales Success Rate for Residential Sales is ~100%.
