Tale of the Sale – 2 Orara Road, Allambie Heights

01 April 2021

Reuben and Amanda bought 2 Orara Road, Allambie Heights through Cunninghams agents Anita Wildash and James Haywood in March 2019 for $1,800,000. At that time it was a slightly softened market, off the back of huge increases during 2017, values had plateaued in some areas and according to Domain data house prices across Sydney fell approximately 9.9% to December that year.

This property, an impeccable family home that has been perfectly designed for relaxed family living and entertaining, sits in a convenient location near cafes, small set of shops and Westfield Warringah Mall only a few moments away. Over the time they owned it, Reuben and Amanda didn’t need to update much in the home, they added solar panels and new doors, and that was it!

When the time came to sell, our Vendors were so satisfied with the buying experience they had with Anita and James back in 2019, they were the only agent they called, trusting that they would be able to get the best result for them. Given the current high demand market and under the guidance of Anita and James, they agreed to run a quick 3 week Auction campaign which saw an extraordinary 174 groups through and 49 contracts requested over that period. Using recent sales in the area as an indicator, the initial price guide on this home was $2.2m – $2.4m, however with such an overwhelming response and in line with buyer feedback and engagement the guide was changed after the first open home to $2.4 – $2.6m.

Once Auction day arrived we had 14 registered bidders ready to secure this popular home, and the opening bid kicked things off with a strong $2,520,000. Bidding then went up in steady increments with the hammer falling down at a final sale price of $2,765,000!

“After buying our first home through Anita and James 2yrs earlier, we had no hesitation in selecting the team to sell our home. Anita is a trustworthy and genuine person and together with James and Leah, make a great team and helped to achieve a great result. They really made the whole process seamless and we highly recommend Anita, James, Leah and the team at Cunninghams.”

We are so happy for our wonderful Vendors and are also equally as happy for our amazing Purchasers – another beautiful family who will be able to enjoy the home.
