Two homeowners in GLEN IRIS are the latest example of residential vendors in Melbourne’s suburbs teaming up to sell their properties to a residential property developer.

Colliers International sold two neighbouring properties at 1520 High Street and 65 Erica Avenue in GLEN IRIS as a 830 square metre residential development site for $3.4 million. 

The campaign received with over 105 enquiries, selling 24 hours after the EOI period closed, at a record land rate for the area of $4,096/sqm.

Both owners received approximately 30% more through the process of selling to a developer than they would have done had they sold their houses individually, agent Ben Baines said.

“The practice is becoming increasingly common following residential zoning reforms which were gazetted in July last year.”

Ben Baines said agents were seeing an increase in activity from Asian buyers in Melbourne’s metropolitan market as this buyer group began to look outside the CBD. He said around 70% of enquiries for this kind of property with development potential was now coming from offshore groups.
