Shrewd Sydney home sellers promote February auctions now hoping for a pre-Christmas sale

By Yana Kofman

It’s not due to go to auction until next year, but some sellers and their agents are seizing the moment and putting their properties on realestate.com.au now hoping for a pre-Christmas sale.

“There are a lot of buyers around, not much stock and the market’s very strong,” says Ray White’s Taylor + Partners agent Jeremy Brink.

So he and colleague James Peach opted to promote the beautifully renovated pet-friendly apartment in the Potts Point iconic Franconia — owned by WH Smith commercial director Matthew Robertson as a “forthcoming auction”.‘We’re getting lots of inquiry,” said Mr Brink, who with a price guide of $1.8 million to $1.9 million is predicting the deal will be done this side of Christmas.

That’s great news for Mr Robertson and his Woolworths strategist partner Justin Gerhardt, who are looking to upsize to a house with their miniature schnauzer, Freeway, in the new year.

Mr Robertson has completely gutted the two-bedroom, 105 sqm apartment at 19/123 Macleay St since his 2015 purchase.

“We started again,” Mr Robertson said. “The lady who owned it before had lived here a very long time and it was dated, stained and old.

But we’ve loved living in this building, the neighbours and the old ‘Are You Being Served’ style lift, with the push buttons, the grate that you pull across and the bench seat.”
