Buyers from the East are hunting their next suburb
Once the initial fog of COVID lifted in 2020, new property patterns started to emerge at BresicWhitney.
Amid our resurgence of both auctions and off-market selling, another interesting shift is how buyers are moving between new suburbs.
Because we’re one network of agents, we have great visibility across this. Performing differently to a franchise, our team works as one collective to facilitate these shifts.
When Eastern Suburbs buyers were looking for value in the Inner West during the last upswing, agents from our Darlinghurst office personally introduced buyers to homes from Newtown to Annandale, listings selling via our Glebe office. That trend continues.
Our Balmain office has always serviced a notable link between buyers from Paddington wanting a new location of a similar lifestyle and home bracket.
Now, Hunters Hill is the latest area to attract families from the Eastern Suburbs looking for more space and garden.
Different BresicWhitney buyers from the East bought 3 properties this month with Nicole Robertson, from Drummoyne to Hunters Hill.
“Those that are looking often see immediate value and quickly decide to buy,” Nicole says.
“They all have similar feedback about space and gardens, and it’s tempting other young families to venture out over the Gladesville Bridge.”
Nicole sold 19 Day Street, Drummoyne to someone who’d just sold up in Paddington that week. It was the first house they looked at in Drummoyne.
17A Farnell Street, Hunters Hill sold to another buyer who was hunting BresicWhitney homes in Paddington. They hadn’t ventured outside their usual parameters for long.
Another buyer from the East was notified about upcoming photoshoots in Hunters Hill. They inquired about 36A Mary Street, Hunters Hill before it was launched, and purchased the home off-market.
Meanwhile, our other offices continue to deliver buyers across town in more established patterns.
Melinda Antella introduced her sellers at 33 Lansdowne Street, Surry Hills to Adrian Oddi’s listing at 12 Bridge Street, Balmain last month. Meanwhile, our Annandale sales continue to go to executives in the East, while our Marrickville sales get traction with the next generation of young professionals.
When the BresicWhitney offices first started growing, one idea at the time was this:
“Not defined by conventional suburb boundaries, our approach reflects modern residents who seek out their chosen way of life across multiple areas.”
Years later, that idea continues to deliver more value for our clients than a franchise approach or a singular suburb focus.
