A NEW family will move into this five bedroom, double-brick home built in the 1960s sold after auction yesterday for $1.095 million.
Located on a block of 1448 square metres across from an oval at Campbell, the house at 106 Vasey Crescent boasts 204 square metres of living space and a double garage.
Three registered bidders competed with each other for the house. A sale was negotiated not long after the house was passed in.
''A family which has lived there for 30 years is downsizing but staying in the area,'' Luton agent Holly Komorowski said.
The spacious Campbell home was not the only abode to sell for seven figures this weekend.
A home represented by LJ Hooker at 35 Doonkuna Street, Braddon, sold for $1.01 million and also had three registered bidders.
Agent Stephen Bunday said the three bedroom house was located on a 743 square metre piece of land.
''It's on a little block by Braddon standards,'' Mr Bunday said.
Much of the property's backyard is taken up by a pool. Elsewhere, a four-bedroom Hughes house represented by the Peter Blackshaw agency on 836 square metres at 20 Maygar Street sold for $840,000.
Robert Westropp-Evans from Peter Blackshaw, which sold four of the seven properties it had listed for auction this week, said statistically there was evidence private treaty houses sat on the market for longer.
''Private treaty [for sale] properties are staying on the market longer whereas vendors who have sold at auction this weekend after three weeks of marketing would be pleased to have a result,'' Mr Westropp-Evans said.
''And of properties passed in at auction today, many will sell in the early part of this coming week.''
