Property Description – Title Reference: CT 5209/ 52

This 1994 built single storey Homette is a Conventional Style

It is ~80 Sqm in size of brick/ veneer construction. It has a block size of 299 Sqm with an enclosed backyard and an attractive front yard open to the street.

It has 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom and 2 compact living areas. There is parking for 1 vehicle in the carport, with room for another on the driveway.

However, there is little on-street parking.

Condition of Property

The property is in quite a good condition in need of a minor vacuum and dusting.

Strengths: The property is attractive and fairly typical of 2 bedroom homettes in the greater area.
It is in a sought after area. Decor is neutral, slightly dated but not a major barrier. It is light and airy inside given its compact size.
There are 2 living areas. The bathroom is 2-way so has the feel of an en-suite.
The Strata group seems reasonably well maintained.

Weaknesses: The home is next door to the ‘Golden Way’ which is a major thoroughfare. So there is fairly constant road noise which is also evident inside.
There is little on-street parking with additional Council restrictions making it a little difficult for visitor parking.

*Please also Refer to ‘Key Information Template’ provided separately.

Recommended Advertising Range

For Private Treaty or Auction we recommend a 10% Price Range proposal of $260,000 to $285,000 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 $284,950.

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

If Auction preferred – Auctioneers cost is $660 – Our Auctioneer is a State and National Title Holder.

The complexity and risk with a Form 1 preparation now require specialist attention. If a Form 1 is defective, the contract is at risk.

We anticipate these will be prepared by your nominated Solicitor or Conveyancer.


There is none.

Household Structure

This area has a mix of Household Types. Couple with children makes up 47.7% of Households, whereas Lone households and Childless couples make up 37.7%.

The rest is made up of Single parent 6.6% and Other 8%.

Of the total property mix, the Ownership mix is almost 22:73 between ‘Renters’ and those who ‘Own outright’ or are ‘Purchasing’.

Why is this important? Because Private Rental is 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.

We believe it will have appeal to a number of groups.

Target Market

The likely purchasers will be First Homebuyers, Older couples looking to downsize or Investors.

These purchasers will likely require a Subject to Sale and/ or Subject to Finance clause.

This excludes the majority of them from bidding at Auction.

Do You Think We Should Advertise as Mortgagee in Possession and Why?

Generally, we have not done so with Mortgagee, Trustee, Executor or Deceased Estate sales and only disclose the fact to purchasers on a need to know basis.

However, the inquiry rate will certainly increase. It has on other properties we have marketed and made it publicly known that it is a Mortgagee Sale.

From our perspective, either would suit us.

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 of Mortgagee and Trustee Sales is ~100%.
