Record May Auction Listings Bring Strong Results

Pre-Budget home sellers took advantage of insatiable buyer’s appetite.

Auction results from Saturday, May 8, saw a number of sellers attempt to cash in on what is still a boomtime market.

A May record of 2563 auctions were reported in auction capitals on Saturday – an increase of 12.2% over the previous weekend and the second-highest offering of the year so far, only behind the Super Saturday auctions of Match 27.

Clearance rates in all capitals eased from the record-breaking March results, yet are still very strong in light of high auction numbers with an average clearance rate of 83.1% – just below the 83.3% of the previous weekend

The Auction markets will be further strengthened by the Federal Budget announcements which signal significant stimulus policies aimed directly at housing demand and first home buyers.

Sydney’s high autumn clearance rates have faded marginally compared to the results recorded in March. However, the market still favours the seller with a clearance rate of 83.5% posted in the harbour city, just below 84.6% and well above the 71.3% recorded this weekend last year.

A Sydney May record of 1014 auctions was reported on Saturday, with the city recording a median price of $1,650,000 for houses sold at auction at the weekend, which was 3.7% higher than the $1,595,000 reported over the previous Saturday and 34% higher than the $1,231,000 recorded over the same weekend last year.

Melbourne fared similarly with a month-high weekend clearance rate of 80.7%, up on the previous weekend’s 80.1% and well ahead of the COVID-impacted 48.2% recorded over the same weekend last year.

A total of 1248 homes were reported listed for auction on Saturday – well above the 1084 auctioned over the previous weekend.

Melbourne recorded a median price of $1,050,000 for houses sold at auction on the weekend, which was 4.9% higher than the $1,001,000 recorded over the previous weekend.

On the Market for the First Time, This Hamptons Beach House Is Listed for Nearly $26 Million

The home in the village of Sagaponack has plenty of balconies to take in the surrounding water views

A waterfront home in the Hamptons village of Sagaponack, New York, is on the market for the very first time.

Asking $25.95 million, the gray shingle-style home was built in 2008 by the seller and has since been available as a summer rental, but it’s never been up for sale.

Designed by architect Faruk Yorgancioglu, the “waterfront home offers privacy and panoramic beauty that cannot be duplicated under today’s zoning laws,” said co-listing agent Marilyn Clark of Sotheby’s International Realty – Bridgehampton Brokerage.

The seller bought the property, which at the time had two small structures, at auction in 2005 for approximately $2 million, according to co-listing agent Deborah Pirro of Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty. Mansion Global could not contact the seller.

The home hit the market Thursday, and in addition to Clark and Pirro, it is co-listed by Raquel Lopez of Sotheby’s International Realty – Bridgehampton Brokerage and Diane Anderson of Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty.

Spanning 6,000 square feet, the home is filled with bright interiors, which were designed by New York-based interior designer Steven Gambrel. The open gourmet kitchen flows into a casual dining area and a living space with a fireplace, which is one of two double-sided fireplaces in the home, Pirro said.

“The placement and scale of fireplaces throughout the home is perfection,” she added.

A separate dining room has French doors that open onto a deck, listing photos show.

There are six en-suite bedrooms, including two primary bedrooms. The larger of the two is its own private retreat, outfitted with a fireplace, a sunroom and a large balcony, offering a space to watch the sun set over Sagaponack Pond, according to Sotheby’s.

The home sits on a little more than an acre of waterfront land, bordering Sagaponack Pond, where there’s a private dock, and looking out at the Atlantic Ocean in the distance.

“The location on the pond with the view of the ocean waves breaking is spectacular and unique,” Clark said. “You are close to beaches and the Sagaponack General Store. It is a quick paddle to the famous Sagg Main Beach.”

Other outside amenities include a gunite swimming pool and a hot tub, which are surrounded by a spacious deck, as well as a pool cabana, which has a full bathroom, changing rooms and a sauna. There’s also multiple balconies, decks and a screened porch overlooking the pool, striking a balance between indoor and outdoor living.
