You may be aware that the Victorian Government has made every effort to support the buying of property by requiring Statements of Information be provided for residential property in attempts to reduce under-quoting.
Unfortunately, the standard legislation means the sale of some properties cannot truly represent the wishes of the vendor.
For this property, all Offers will be considered.
It is for Sale by Negotiation starting immediately. The vendor may sell for less than the $1.65m-$1.8m on the current Statement of Information. The Vendor, as do we, wish to support any buyers interested to protect and promote all the eco values established in this property. This means that for some buyers there may be considerable negotiation in the purchase price.
The systems and infrastructure established in this property well exceeds $1.8m so whatever the final purchase price, the new owner will benefit from substantial assets and values.
We encourage all Eco buyers to contact our office to discuss the property and the selling program in detail.
For all buyers, please submit the property inquiry form to receive further details of how the selling program is proceeding. This document will explain the assets in more detail and the values to assist your decision making.
