Vendors get the jump on GF to line up for ‘Super Saturday’

Vendors are seeking to score ahead of the umpire’s bounce with LJ Hooker hosting 22 auctions across South Australia the Saturday before the AFL’s Grand Final (September 23).

From Walkerville to Seaton and as far south as Strathalbyn, the LJ Hooker group is set to place more than $10 million worth of owner-occupied and investor properties under the hammer the week prior to September’s famous last Saturday.

Of the network’s auction program, LJ Hooker Walkerville | Modbury will hold 14 auctions on September 23.
“Serious bidders will suffer rain and driving wind when they find what they want, but history has shown it’s difficult to get a strong turnout on grand final day,” said LJ Hooker Walkerville | Modbury Principal Jarrad Boffo.

“There’s a small window of opportunity early in the (Grand Final) day to hold an auction, but by late morning you’re competing with barbecue invites and rolling TV coverage from the MCG. Added to that, you have many people who will travel to Melbourne for the game; and for those that don’t even follow the footy, the first long-weekend of warmer temperatures offers a great opportunity to simply get out of town.

“Our vendors would simply prefer to avoid the day and secure an unconditional sale beforehand on Super Saturday.”

Mr Boffo said auctions had been in favour amongst Adelaide home owners in the last month.

“Our team would typically take two-thirds of our listings through to auction, and we’re expecting to eclipse that ratio over the remainder of spring,” he said.

“The market has really turned to auctions as the way to secure a premium sale in the shortest time frame. And the old adages that auctions only work for particular types of properties or in certain markets are outdated; whether it’s a block of land or a multi-million dollar inner-city address, buyers are very comfortable with the auction process.”
