BOUGHT* - $2,810,000
A crowd of 41 gathered in the sun, in front of 15 Hawksburn Road, South Yarra. The sound of the bell signalled the time had come for the property to be auctioned. Auctioneer Philippe Batters, encouraged the crowd to approach the auction as he did when buying properties “hard and fast“. However the crowd remained silent, prompting Mr Batters to step inside and “talk about nothing”. He then returned to the quiet crowd and placed a vendor bid of $2,650,000. Apartment residents looked on, from balconies, awaiting some action as Mr Batters asked for bids of $20,000. After some encouragement from Mr Batters, a first bidder placed a bid of $ 2,670,000. This was quickly met by a second bidder standing just steps from the first, whom placed a bid of $ 2,680,000. The bids then moved quickly between the two bidders with Bidder 1 placing a bid of $2,690,000, in which Bidder 2 then placed a bid of $2,700,000. Bidder 1 then placed a $50,000 bid, which Bidder 2 met with a $20,000 bid, to which Bidder 1, bid $2,800,000. With this, auctioneer Philippe Batters declared the property was on the market, and went inside to consult the vendors. Upon his return, Mr Batters reiterated that the property was on the market, in which a third bidder joined the race with a bid of $2,810,000. This bid was not met by the previous bidders and the property was sold to Bidder 3 for $2,810,000. The crowd disbanded and Bidder 3 was joined by his wife, to marvel at their new property.
