2020’s biggest month yet

BresicWhitney has delivered a record month for 2020, a huge result for October sellers.

With 101 sales for October, BresicWhitney just saw the biggest month of 2020 so far, and a return to auction selling.

It was no surprise then, to see reports of a lift in Sydney prices. More on that here.

Some of our landmark sales of the month included:



The clearance rate for the month was 81% and we saw a surge in auction attendance with more than 4 people registering each time.

The rental market has turned into a two-speed space. Lifestyle houses and immaculate properties are getting attention. Anything that needs upkeep can be slower.

That said, we had another near-record month with 140 leases, and met more than 1800 inspectees. For people looking for new rental solutions, we took on 47 new property management clients. We’re always here to talk.
