TWO Maroubra homes with ocean views sold to keen buyers who were house hunting for the first time. A four-bedroom, three-level house at 2 Little St, sold for $2.85 million after its initial auction.

“It sold to a couple from Bondi who weren’t at the auction,” said Martin Farah of N G Farah.

“It was their first weekend of house hunting. They loved it and bought their dream home in Maroubra.”

Another four-bedroom home at 316 Maroubra Rd, and listed with Mr Farah, sold for $2.95 million prior to auction to a Coogee couple.

“It sold on the first inspection.” Mr Farah said. “It was a duel between two buyers. The vendors were expecting between $2.75-$2.8 million, so anything above $2.8 million was a bonus.”

EAGER BUYER SWOOPS IN

Just moments before auction, an eager buyer wiped out the competition with a $1.95 million offer for a new four-bedroom, solid brick Rosebery terrace.

Listed with Ben Forsyth of Sydney Sotheby’s International Realty, the three-level terrace at 6D Queen St, had a price guide from $1.8-$1.85 million.

“It was a really strong result,” Mr Forsyth said.

“We weren’t expecting it to reach that level but the buyer went in and hit the price on the head.”

Ideal for entertaining, the indoors blend with the outdoors.

The agent said the buyer came from an area with expensive property and regarded Rosebery and the contemporary terrace as a great buy.
