Camp Hill house sold at auction to ex-tenants

Written by The ReReport

A FAMILY who once rented this Camp Hill house loved it so much they bought it.

Place Estate Agents Bulimba agent Shane Hicks said three registered bidders battled for the 13 Newman Ave Queenslander on a gloomy Sunday morning.

“It was a stormy Sunday morning, so we held the auction on the front deck and inside the lounge room,” Mr Hicks said.

“We had a good crowd of about 40-odd people and bidding kicked off at $1 million.”

Mr Hicks said bidding rose “fast and furiously” before it broke down to $1000 bids.

The house sold under the hammer for $1,127,000.

“I sold the property to the sellers to some years ago,” Mr Hicks said.

“They went to Melbourne on a transfer and leased out the property.

“The first tenant ended up being the buyers at this auction.

“They kept saying they wanted to own this house, so as soon as it came on the market they called me up and bought it at the auction.”

The agent said the family planned to live in it as is for now.

“Long term, the plan for the property is to build in underneath and make it a really awesome Queenslander.”
