Where value is more than the price

I have said a number of times that this blog is more about me than what I do for a living. Having said that, it's not often that I get the chance to sell a home that offers more than the obvious for a very reasonable price. So I am hoping you will forgive me for talking shop, but this little beauty is an exception.

87 Gilberts Road, Glencoe is a 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom home that is as normal as most other homes of the same size and facilities. There are two things that make this property different.

Firstly, the views. An extensive view towards the North-West, all the way down a valley to the Bunya Mountains, and then a similar view down a valley facing South-West. You can see for miles. You can see the storm clouds roll up from the south and west. You can see sunsets that last for an hour. You can see forever.

Secondly, the price. Under any normal circumstance, this property would be worth over $400,000. Well-over. But due to the particular circumstances of the owners and their family, a quick sale is more important that obtaining the most value for their asset.

I am not going to wax lyrical about this home. This is not the place to do that. I'm not going to waffle on about all the facilities of the home, and the 6 acres it sits on. There are other forums for that. 

I'm just letting you know that there is an opportunity to make a purchase where the value is obviously more than the price.
