12/19 Young St, Neutral Bay:

Property sale increases 40% in value using Ozway Realty. Sold by Barry Liddle.

This stylish, sub-penthouse apartment was on the market for just seven days before it sold. Buyer interest was extremely strong, with 164 enquiries resulting in 2 offers. The sale price of $1.85m represented a strong 40% appreciation over the five years from when the owner purchased it for $1,325,000 in 2012.

Ozway Realty Director Barry Liddle says the advertised price guide of $1.69m to $1.79m was determined by good market research and strategy planning by the Ozway Realty Sales Support team. “The strong buyer interest was indicative of how well this property was priced to meet market conditions,” he explains. “The final selling price was very rewarding, as one of my goals with every sale is to over-deliver on my commitment to my client.”

However, price is not the only consideration, according to owner Nicola Palk. “If you’re anything like me, you are looking for an experienced professional you can trust to help facilitate a good experience for all involved. Recommended by a colleague, I have recently sold two properties in the past 12 months and have been guided by Barry throughout the process.

“For the first time in this market, I felt as though someone else was doing the work for me – both leading the strategy and handling the negotiations on my behalf. This sense of partnership is not something I have experienced before, and it made the entire process stress-free and enjoyable.

“And of course, with this approach, the magic happens and in both cases I achieved a price which was at least 10% beyond expectations. Barry holds a strong vision for change within the industry, and delivers on his promise – both on quality and price.

“I would highly recommend Barry if you are thinking of buying or selling in the future.”

The quick sale and above-market selling price were helped by the ambience and location of the 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom apartment. The three large bedrooms all boast built-in cupboards with a beautiful walnut finish, and the lavish master suite has a palatial, custom-fitted walk-through robe, fully tiled ensuite and access to the terrace.

The home has solid Blackbutt timber flooring throughout and the 2.7m high ceilings and commercial grade glass sliding doors onto the spacious alfresco terrace create space and flow. The open-plan living sweeps from the sophisticated eat-in kitchen to the dining and lounge areas. The showpiece kitchen includes a large butler’s pantry, stainless steel Miele appliances, gas cooktop and extensive storage.

There is secure intercom entry, with easy lift access from the car park to the private landing. Perfectly positioned to enjoy the vibrant village hub of Neutral Bay village life, this home has easy access to all transport as well as a vast array of local shops, cafes, restaurants & wine bars.
