A HOUSE that had been on the market since November was bought in a day by a family moving closer to school.
The four-bedroom two-storey house at 9 Glencoe Court, Underwood, is on a 551sq m block with an upstairs master suite.
An early offer last year was not negotiable, so the owner decided to wait until after Christmas.
The house sold during the first week of school for $530,000 with @Reality agent Leanne Smith saying the buyers were keen to move into the area as they already had children at a nearby school.
“They really liked it straight away, the floorplan worked for them and it was in a cul-de-sac,” she said.
“To sell a property in a day doesn’t happen very often, not unless there is competition.”
Ms Smith has confidence in the current market and is encouraging potential sellers to list now.
“The market is going well,” she said.
“We’ve had four settlements so far and another three coming. We just need listings at the moment.”
The latest CoreLogic property data shows Underwood’s median house price is $552,100, a 0.4 per cent rise in 12 months, with 83 houses sold in the last 12 months.
