This Old Noarlunga home comes with two bedrooms, a massive lounge area and serenity. So much serenity.
That’s the message Harcourts WineCoast agent Chris Cotton has for buyers inspecting 13 Castle St this week, as he draws inspiration from classic Aussie comedy The Castle.
To help sell the deceased estate, Mr Cotton asked six colleagues to dress up as characters from the 1997 film, which featured Michael Caton and Eric Bana.
They could have easily said “Tell him he’s dreaming”, but instead they jumped at the chance.
“The house really is the opposite of a castle and we knew we needed a different approach to sell this home,” Mr Cotton said.
“So we brainstormed for ideas and, as we’re all mates, thought why don’t we dress up as characters from The Castle for a promotional shot – the link being that the property is set on Castle St.
“The best part about it all was that we didn’t even have to go to an op-shop. Between us, we had all the required clothes at home.”
While buyers won’t be bumping into the Kerrigan family at the property’s open this Saturday, Mr Cotton said the unusual Facebook promotion had done its job by attracting interest from renovators and developers.
The home sits on a 690sq m block in a tightly-held street, just down the road from the historic Old Noarlunga Hotel.
“We’ve had quite a few people through the home the last two weekends and people are loving the unique approach we’ve taken to selling this home,” Mr Cotton said.
“The Old Noarlunga Hotel has also come on board and donated a $100 voucher. All people have to do is like our page, share our post on Facebook and tag a friend they’d like to take to the pub.
“It’s really been a fun campaign, so much so that we’re already brainstorming some other ideas. I’ve got a property on Ferris Court, so I’m thinking I might do something based on Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.
