The 2013 auction season already starts to book fill up

With the Christmas around the corner, auctioneers have started making their first bookings for 2013 auctions.

Fastidious planners, those who want to avoid competing with the many December distractions, and the 2013 early bird optimists have booked in a number of auctions for the start of next year.

Current listings include properties in Bronte NSW, along with the traditional beachside January auction locations including Noosa Head QLD, Rosebud VIC, Natimuk VIC and South West Rocks NSW.

Sydney based auctioneer Damien Cooley says the listings are starting to pick up for 2013.

“Residentially there are encouraging signs to suggest the market is continuing to improve. "We expect this increased confidence to flow through into 2013 and particularly feel that there will be a good volume of property coming onto the market early 2013.”

He says most auctions for the new year will start in February.

New stock will be expected to hit the market from mid-January to early February with the first auctions in early February 2013, if they don't sell before, Cooley says.

“The vast majority of property hitting the market in the new year will begin their campaigns in February which will result in strong auction volume late February and right through March as vendors and buyers look to trade in the new year and before Easter.”

Cooley will be auctioning a Bronte property listed through Alex Phillips from goodyerDonnelley.

Other 2013 auction listings include 3 Hope Street, a three bedroom fibro home in Rosebud Victoria going to auction on January 19, through David Short from David Short Real Estate.

A beachside  cottage at 18 Memorial Avenue in South West Rocks NSW listed for a January 12 auction through Mark Foster from Raine & Horne South West Rocks.

A Stephen Kidd designed water-front mansion at 12 Noosa Parade in Noosa Heads Queensland has been listed for a January 25 auction through Mal Cox from Tom Offermann Real Estate.

And a 219 hectare crop and livestock farm in Natimuk Victoria has been listed for a February 8 auction through Neil Ottoson from Ottoson Partners Real Estate.
