Townsville's first successful online auction sale

Townsville agent Julie Mahoney not only conducted her first online auction but also managed to become the first Townsville office to sell property via online platform.

Two properties were snapped up on Monday night, 7 Townsend St, Mysterton (pictured above) sold for $450,000 and 116-118 Martinez Avenue, West End went for $545,000.

Office principal and selling agent Julie Mahoney said the auctions drew a large range of bidders including locals, those from interstate and even a few international viewers translating to some great results on the night.

Ms Mahoney said, "most of the bidders were local but the demographic was quite interesting."

“We had bidders who were aged from 70 plus online and one of my vendors who will be auctioning later in the month watched from England."

A local first home buyer couple were the winning bidders on 7 Townsend St, Mysterton which they said was the first auction they’ve participated in.

“We were very nervous, however it was an easier process than what we thought it was going to be and not being able to see the competition actually made it easier,” they said.

The couple had been looking for several months and the four bedroom home was exactly what they were after.

Calling the auctions was Ray White Queensland chief auctioneer Mitch Peereboom who said he is thrilled to see both buyers and sellers embracing the new technology.
