The sales of this Benowa Waters house was lightning fast.A SPEEDY record-breaking sale is every homeowners’ dream and for two Gold Coast vendors it became a reality. Their four-bedroom Benowa Waters house at 10 Sir Bruce Small Blvd was snapped up by a Melbourne buyer, who had never seen the property, less than 24 hours after it hit the market. The million-dollar sale was the top price fetched for a non-waterfront home on the street, according to property records. The million-dollar sale has set a record for dry blocks on the street. A Melbourne real estate director purchased the home without inspecting it. Waterfront homes along the street have fetched more than $4 million, with most dry blocks selling below the million-dollar mark.The record sale takes the reigns from No. 14, a four-bedroom house that was designed by a Feng Shui master, which sold for $1.09 million in 2009. It sold within 24 hours of hitting the market.The Gold Coast’s median time on market sits at 40 days for houses and Benowa’s median is 43 days, according to the latest figures. Mr Smyth said post-election the time spent on market had significantly dropped and the sale was a positive reflection of how the market was travelling. “On an office level, our days on market has dropped to around 40 days, whereas pre-election it was more between 75-80 days,” he said.last_img
