Buyer faints on Melbourne’s first live auction weekend since July 8

A bidder fainted at the auction of 44 Hyde Street, Seddon.


A homebuyer fainted as Melbourne’s first weekend of face-to-face auction action ended with sellers celebrating prices $100,000 and more above their reserve.

On the busiest AFL Grand Final day of auctions since the premiership match had to be replayed in 2010, realestate.com.au recorded a 76.9 per cent clearance rate from 238 results.

Real Estate Institute of Victoria vice-president Adam Docking said with buyers coming from “everywhere” the sales showed “real estate is back open for business”.
