Beachfront Bidding War

March 31 2023

Competition for an original beach house on Tugun’s elite Pacific Parade, with auction bidders sending the sale price well beyond market expectation.
Beachfront Bidding War

A rare-to-market home positioned on an elevated block in Tugun far exceeded vendor expectations at auction last week, when a bidding war broke out for the beachfront property.

Kollosche southern beaches specialist agent Troy Dowker expertly executed a bespoke four-week marketing campaign to secure $9,100,000 under the hammer for 670 Pacific Parade at a private auction.

More than 165 enquiries were generated and 37 inspections conducted during a comprehensive campaign, with 11 registered bidders present at the auction.

The characterful home, owned by the same family for 60 years, holds a prime position opposite the beachfront and set back from the foreshore for privacy.

Bidding started at $3,000,000 before rising swiftly, pushed to the limits by four active bidders. The hammer was brought down less than eight minutes later, with the winning bid from a Brisbane buyer going beyond the vendor’s expectation.

Kollosche continues to post excellent auction results that are well in excess of vendor and wider market expectations. In the past week it achieved a total $22,000,000 in unconditional auction sales across five properties, with an average price of $4,400,00

“You can’t say that luck plays a part in these types of results,” Michael says.

“They come down to extremely well-executed marketing campaigns and they mark the difference between agents who can sell a property and those that can achieve a maximum price for that sale.”

Among them was a family home at 15 Kalimna Drive, Broadbeach, marketed by Matthew Follent and Michael Kollosche, who received 128 enquiries and three written offers before selling the property under the hammer for $3,060,000.
