Auctions seem to be pretty rare down Frankston way but there's one coming up on 7 November in Frankston North. It might be of interest to owners here to see what sort of enthusiasm an auction draws to the area. Quoted at 260+ at 15 WIRILDA CRESCENT which seems to be 'in the enclave'.
The most expensive house for sale in Frankston North has been sold for, i'm told, $315k. According to the selling agent's office: "there's not much for sale here, houses are in short supply mate. Forget about dual-occs, nobody's selling em. Gimme your number and I will call you if something comes up."
The cheapest house for sale (if it isn't a case of bait advertising) is for "up to $245k." Rang the agent to make a bid but they seem slack in returning calls so I'm guessing this is a bait advert and the house is already sold or maybe even belongs to a helpful mate of the agents. The agents don't even list their mobile numbers on the advert.....losers.
Which Excelsior Drive property are you referring to? I haven't seen any bait advertising on any Excelsior Drive property. The only Excelsior drive property I see that is for sale and it doesn't seem to have been sold is the one below. I went to the open inspection for that property so I'm pretty confident that it is for sale.
I'm not sure which "astute investors" referred to in the ad will be falling over themselves for this property. Why would you buy an ex-commission house with a 3200 postcode for $289k when you could buy a 3 bedder in Frankston for the same price? I'm not saying that Frankston Nth is a bad area for investment, but it's all comparative. Just did a quiick search and found this one on a good size block in Karingal:
I'm sure there are some better.
Or maybe they don't return calls because they've become familiar with some of you and ...
What an ignorant statement.
If you want to buy a property in Frankston North why don't you contact the agents every time a property is on the market? If the agent doesn't call you back, call them back. Something about an old lady.
As an agent, don't you care why people are upset with industry participants like you?
I wonder how sellers feel about the "professional" attitude of their sales agents. The attitude seems to be: sell em low, sell em fast, sell em to your mates on the cheap........then resell em a few months later on the open market for a profit. Happens all the time, I saw it on TV.
Give me one possible or even remote example where this has happened in the last 5 years in the Frankston area.
Your like the boy who cries wolf. You cry wolf so much that no one believes a thing you say, even if there is a wolf.
