Fierce competition for charming Queenslander home

Sold by Jason Mills at Auction for $940,000

One of the advantages of taking a property to auction is allowing the market to decide what it is worth, often resulting in a much higher sale price. The recent sale of 82 Mons School Rd, Mons, is the perfect example.

A stunning replica Queenslander, set on a large block with pool, fireplace and just minutes to Buderim Village and a selection of quality schools, it’s no surprise that this gorgeous property attracted a lot of interest.

Sold under the hammer for $940,000 last month, agent Jason Mills says because competition was so high, taking it to auction made perfect sense.

“From the moment this property hit the market, we were inundated with interest so we encouraged going to auction as we knew it would help with price. Going to auction also helps to whittle down the numbers to just genuine buyers,” says Jason.

Just seven years old, the modern Queenslander ticked all the right boxes for a young family. Built with style and practicality, the seamless floorplan allows for plenty of space for everyone to enjoy as well as an inclusive area for entertaining and a huge back yard for the kids.

“This modern home had all the character and charm of a traditional Queenslander but without the clunky floorplan of an original home of that era, it is a very popular style,” says Jason.

“The suburb of Mons is also very attractive for families, being close to schools, Buderim Village and the motorway, without being able to hear it.

“The buyers are a local family who were looking for a nice house close to schools and amenities and the style of the home was a big winner for them, so it ticked all the boxes.”

Set on 9190sq metres, with a little over half an acre of useable land, the property allows the perfect balance of privacy without the maintenance that goes with a big acreage block.

“The rest of the block is a natural vegetation protection area to protect the wildlife and greenery, while allowing separation from the neighbours,” says Jason.

Excitement was high on the day of auction, with four registered bidders hoping to secure their dream home.

“It was a great auction. Bidding went heavy until we reached the high $800’s,” says Jason.

“We paused at $892,000 and the highest bidder increased their bid to $900,000 at that point, which is as far as we could get them.

“However, one of the bidders hadn’t bid yet so we approached them as we thought we could achieve a higher price and we negotiated with them to $940,000 if we threw the ride-on mower in. The owners were ridiculously happy with the result.”

Sounds like the new buyers are going to love living in their new home. A beautiful modern Queenslander in a secluded acreage setting, with a ride-on to make light of the mowing! What’s not to love about that!
