The Perth property where the body of a mother of two was found buried in the backyard in September has been sold for $610,000.

Ahmed Seedat was charged with the murder of his wife Fahima Yusuf, the mother of two children, after her body was found at their Weston Street, Carlisle property.

The Pulse Property Group marketed the property as mortgagee in possession.

The 2005-built four bedroom home situated at 13 Weston Street last traded at $865,000 in 2014.

Under the WA Real Estate and Business Agents and Sales Representatives Code of Conduct 2016 regulation 24, the listed agent must make reasonable efforts to verify all facts material to the transaction.

Listing agent Jared Rayner told the local paper while the Weston Street property was no longer a crime scene, its history would not be hidden from buyers.

“Because it’s a material fact of the transaction, we must acknowledge that to any person who does want to purport a contract,” he said.

“It’s open public information as well, however, I would still be disclosing because we don’t know what really happened there other than a body was found in the backyard.”

Mr Seedat is awaiting a sentence hearing in May.
