$$$ Houses in our neighbourhood

There is something crazy going on around our area at the moment.

Houses are selling over $1 million.

Take a look at these:

West Footscray
Sold in March for $1,020,000
97 Stanhope Street, West Footscray, Vic 3012

West Footscray
Sold in July $1,010,000
42 Blandford Street, West Footscray, Vic 3012

Sold in Nov 2014 $1.062,000
2 Albion Street, Kingsville, Vic 3012

Sold in June 2014 $1,050,000
96 Chirnside Street, Kingsville, Vic 3012

Sold in August $1,055,000

2 Kent Street, Yarraville, Vic 3013

At the moment there is a house close to us with 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms (so same that ours will be), double storey and it is advertised at $950,000. In this area they normally will sell for 10% more than advertised, so it would be sold for more than $1 million. Here it is:
78 Coronation Street, Kingsville, Vic 3012

We went through it and it was lovely but I think I will be nicer once it is all finished.

I can't wait to get ours appraised. Not that we will sell it but would be amazing to think that our once tiny old stinky house could be worth $1 million.

Have a nice weekend!


  1. That is great news for your home!
    Knowing you'll get your money back and then some after the hard work and money that goes into renovating makes it worthwhile and inspires you to push on :)

    1. It certainly has given us a nee perspective about the work we are doing.
