Sold in 3 days is this 3 bedroom home in the increasingly popular Leopold. Buyers knew as soon as they saw it that it was the one for them and snapped it up. The vendors are very happy as it frees them up to pursue the next exciting phase of their lives and purchase a small acreage property. WIN WIN – That’s what real estate is all about!

New council valuation for 865 Portarlington Rd Leopold

Proving that it is dangerous to use a council valuation as your guide to a property’s value, the latest council valuation on our stunning property at 865 Portarlington Rd Leopold has come in at $1.03M up from the previous year’s valuation of $750,000!

That’s quite a jump. Seems like they hadn’t valued the property for some time which shows that you should be careful not to jump on the section 32 and go straight to the rates page to see what a property is “worth”!

Of course this is still below the asking price of $1.15-1.25M. However it does not take into account the income of $15,000 pa the property earns via the second dwelling; a 3 bedroom 1960’s cream brick house.
