    I would love to stay here but weighing up everything we can move to the blue mountains and have no mortgage. That is the biggest factor for us. Plus it would be closer for work for me. Pretty much the same distance for my husband but it means he could quit his job and get a job that pays way less but not the crazy hours he is doing now. He works 10-12 hour days, sometimes more plus Saturdays as well. The only good thing is he gets paid hourly so it is ok.

    The agent from McGrath rang today to say thanks for coming. He said the house has an offer of $1.65 and that a lot of buyers didn't have finance in time for the auction. He also said it's heritage listed. Not sure how true that is but would explain the slow auction.

    Heritage listing explains it all, a lot of people get scared off or those that want big blocks can't do anything with it - I'd love a heritage listed house as I love federation homes and they are usually on big blocks so the builders can't touch them if they are heritage listed!

    I just looked it up - they bought it in 2011 for $580,000 so just about doubled its value in 6 years!
    You'll get more than what you think , the market is crazy as there is no stock

    I just hope nothing happens between now and when we sell. Plan is to have the house on the market in August.

    I'm really hoping to get $1.55

    Is it possible to pull out of an auction after the hammer?

    The real estate has posted on Facebook and I'm 100% the buyers in the pic weren't the winning bidders at the auction last night.

    You can pull out but will lose your 10% deposit plus legal expenses so it almost never happens ( happened to me once in 25 years) or the buyers may have had someone bidding on their behalf ( quite common) or maybe it's the owners in the photo?

    Thanks. The owners and buyers are in the photo. I'm sure the people in the photo did bid but were out but good for them. They look like a young couple. IMG_1490844717.068239.jpg
